Official Guide

Postby Aspen.Shiyan » Wed Jun 23, 2010 5:53 am

Welcome to the 2010 Jonny Quest Revival Extravaganza!
I'm your host and this is your official guide to the festivities:

The 2010 Extravaganza will take place between July and December 2010 with lots of monthly winners and a few big yearly winners. This is your chance to earn pride, glory and a little JQ immortality for all Fan Fiction and Fan Artists out there.
We'll be accepting old and new works so dust off and polish up some of those masterpieces you've been neglecting and send them on in.

The activities will span the JQML, JQ Style and the FFN forums with JQ Style serving as our official hub.

Each month will have two types of activities: Judged Challenges and Questors' Choice awards.


Judged Challenges:

These will consist of fic/art challenges with a theme for all pieces that are submitted to this section for that month.
That month's theme will be announced on the 20th of the previous month and submissions can be sent to the panel of judges from the 1st of the month through the 20th. All submissions for the themes should be sent directly to the judge panel so as to prevent later submissions copying the earlier ones. The judges will have from the 20th until the 29th to read all the submissions and vote. On the 30th of that month, we'll send out a newsletter announcing the winners and including every submission that was received.

There will be 5 judges for this element. 4 will be the "permanent" 2010 judges who will return to judge each month and each month, we will have one guest judge. Judges may submit their own pieces to be included in that month's newsletter, but obviously cannot receive any awards or placing in the Judged Theme portion of the contest.
We'll have more information on who the permanent 2010 judges will be or how that will be decided later on.


Questors' Choice:

These will be sent to both the Official Extravaganza Panel and whoever else the submitter feels like sharing the story with at that time (since these are free-form, there's no concern with copying each other) by the 15th of the month they want to be entered into the contest for.
These can be any type of prose, poetry or art created at any time. This means that you can brush up that fic you wrote three years ago and submit it.
On the 16th, all submissions sent to me will be included in a newsletter sent to everyone involved in the contest. The Questors (anybody) can then rate any number of fics and art they want on a scale of 1 to 10 for the following categories:
Action
Drama
Romance
Humor
Style/Voice
Overall

The awards will go to those with the highest rating in each category as well as the voted Top Three for Overall.

On December 1st, I'll send out all the award winners for every category back out to be voted on for the Best of 2010.

Winners of the December contest will be entered into the Best of 2011 nominations.



So that was your guide. Have fun and let yourself shine.
It's so fluffy I'm gonna die!!
