The official group for the SPC on Protagonize.
The Seasonal Prose Competition is a contest open to all Protagonize authors on a seasonal basis. It is very similar to its counterpart, and "older sibling," the Seasonal Poetry Tournament. The competition is user-run and (usually) does not offer prizes beyond the title of champion and the feeling of accomplishment that accompanies it.
The first ever competition was held in Summer 2010 by the World Building group, and after that trial run has graduated to its very own group. Future competitions will be announced in this group, so join up if you're interested in competing or maybe even hosting!
When is the next competition?
We try to have two full format competitions a year, usually one in the summer and one in the winter. Occasionally there will be smaller competitions at other times of the year. Check out the News box below for up-to-date info.
How do I enter the competitions?
First off you have to be a member of this group. After that, check out the description of the competition in question to see how to enter. Some might just require you to leave a comment, others might require the completion of a challenge piece.
Why is this a competition?
Initially we held a competition simply to differentiate ourselves from the Poetry Tournament. Now, we go with the competition format because of the nature of the challenges: they require storytelling, and it's unfair to ask people to stop telling a story should they not score high enough in a challenge.
Who's behind the competition?
That changes as often as the seasons. Typically it's Jackerbie, but other hosts have included Elorithryn, and BDrewCollier.
What's with Snoopy?
Snoopy is our unofficial official mascot, 'cause he's a rad typewriter-using dawg. Yes, dawg. Peace out home slice.
