Contest Announcements

It's that time again - contest announcements! As usual, they are listed in order of end date, with the soonest ending first.

Temptation Twilight Fanart Contest - Submission Deadline August 10

Ok, here are all the rules and specifics written out for everyone for our fanfiction fanart contest.

  1. All art must be of a Twilight fanfiction, not the canon (this can be smudged for AUs that overlap)
  2. Any kind of drawing/painting/etc or photo manipulation is acceptable. No fanvids or anything like that, though.
  3. It does not have to be a "banner" for a story. You can make them any size, any shape, any theme as long as they are PG13 and can fit as an attachment to an email. We will take anything from icons to wallpapers, from portraits to collages. Anything!
  4. All entries must be sent to by August 10th, with "Fanart Contest" in the subject line.
  5. Include the name of the story that inspired the art, and the name of the author of that story.
Also, you can enter as many times as you like, we just ask that you send each entry in its own email, and let us what story its based on and who the author of that story is.

Parkaward Contest - Submission Deadline August 30

Yes, we are looking for uncut, totally natural, penis just like it was the day it was born Twific. You may call it anteater, armadillo, pig in a blanket...

We call it a parka, and we like peens wearing them.

As such, we are putting out the call for original one-shots featuring parka-sporting Twi men. Any and all pairings welcome except Carlisle/Bella, Carlisle/Edward, and Edward/Jacob, and that's only because they make Algie's eyes bleed and since she's a host, that just ain't right.

RULES: Your one-shot must be between 3,000 and 10,000 words in length, cannot be continued until after the contest is over, and must be a new and original story. Since we want to see the parka on the peen, all stories must be M-rated and include smut featuring our star performer: the parka. Please, please, use a beta, because if your spelling and grammar make our eyes bleed, we will DQ. Collaborations are fine, but you'll need to duke it out with your co-author for prize ownership.

Not allowed: rape, incest, pedophilia, or physical/verbal/sexual abuse guised as smut. All characters must be legally able to vote and drink alcohol in the United States, so that means 21 and up, folks. Slash, poly, BDSM (that's actual BDSM, not rapefic, and if you are confused, feel free to PM us)... all flavors of smexin' are welcome. Canon, AH, AU... all are good by us.

PLEASE NOTE... this is all in good fun. This is NOT an opportunity to use fic as a platform for a debate for or against male circumcision. Keep that to the mommy boards, please. All we want to see is smexin' with a parka. Any political slant for or against circumcision in your fic will be an automatic DQ.

All fics will be validated by algonquinrt and jgulia45 (your hosts) as well as two additional judges (DeviKalika and ooohlalaaa) to ensure that they meet the guidelines, then put to a user vote.

You need to be 18 to enter. We are not concerned with the age of consent in your state. We just want to make sure you are of legal age to procure porn in ours.

Enter as often as you like. The more parkas, the better.

Contest entries must be received no later than 30 August 2009 12:01AM EDT

Public vote will be started on or about 6 September 2009, ending 13 September 2009 at 12:01AM EDT

All entries must be posted on Once your story has been posted, please submit the link via PM for entrance into the contest.

We reserve the right to make minor adjustments to dates and/or rules should that become necessary.

All entries must feature the following heading:
