So I was thinkin' to myself the other day, how could I celebrate not only the fact that I recently received my 100,000th pageview, AND the fact that I've now done four Enhancegirl stories (five, if you count Spectra's little outing). And then it hit me.
I'll hold a contest!
So, the brief is this: you can draw a picture or write a story featuring the lovely Sophie Scott, alias Enhancegirl, in which she is captured or kidnapped or something like that. Your work must feature Enhancegirl herself as captive, but it may feature other characters from the EG universe as well (Spectra, Stellar, etc). My preference would be for her to be tied up, being chloroformed, or both, but if you want to venture outside that you may - but it may hurt your chances! If you're writing a story, it needs to be at least 3,000 words long, and I imagine longer stories will have better chances. The closing date for submissions is April 30th (though I might extend that if necessary).
If you need information or a character reference for Enhancegirl, you may find it here: damselbinder.deviantart.com/jo…
The prizes are as follows:
1st prize: $100
2nd prize: $40
3rd prize: $20
I will be judging on a number of different criteria, which would be difficult to list exhaustively. However, the following things couldn't hurt to include:
- Sheer quality of art or writing
- Interesting poses, expressions
- Keeping in character (for stories)
- Originality...to a point. While I encourage you to be imaginative, I'm no enemy to "classic" scenarios. For instance, a simple, very well drawn picture of Enhancegirl simply bound and gagged could very well be a strong contender.
I look forward to seeing people's submissions, and I hope that people want to participate!
