:bulletgreen: RULES :bulletgreen:

There are few rules to keep in mind when submitting your own artworks in the group:

:bulletblue: Artworks MUST be submitted to the correct folders, or else, we’ll be forced to decline it. If you submit it to the wrong folder by accident, it’s alright... just re-submit it to the correct folder.
:bulletblue: Only Tales Of related images (you can submit pictures of your OC's as long as the picture features actual tales characters.)
:bulletblue: If you have OC and a Tales character or more they belong in the crossover and misc folder!
:bulletblue: We will NOT accept official Tales artworks. (official artwork used to make Signatures/Banners/Animations/Stamps is okay.)
:bulletblue: We will not accept edits of Tales of media, such as video-game/anime screenshots, with or without captions.
:bulletblue: No nudity... this isn’t a pronz site.
:bulletblue: No gore, please. We want to keep our younger fellows away from gore and violence.
:bulletblue: Submit artworks with GOOD quality. If it looks like a cup of water (or coffee) was spilled on it, chances are, it’s not going to be accepted.
:bulletblue: If your artwork isn't accepted, you can always suggest it to the Group's Favorites
:bulletblue: Art thievery is NOT tolerated in this group. Those who will be caught stealing arts from other people will be BANNED PERMANENTLY from the group.

:bulletgreen: AFFILIATES :bulletgreen:

All affiliation requests WILL BE approved. So, keep them coming. Though, if a group looks suspicious, we will not hesitate to decline it.

Admin Wind here! We admins have been talking about putting up a new contest in near future and so far I've come up with a literature theme contest! But of course we would like to hear your thoughts about it if you even wanna have a go at it.

Also what kind of prize do you guys wish for? AND are there anyone who's willing to donor a prize, maybe a art feature or commission art. Also does anyone wish to help with the judging?

Anyway this is how I thought it should be and some rules:

Each and everyone of you who wishes to participate can either write a Fanfiction, max 3000 words or a poem, max 500 words.
The fanfiction or poem needs to contain or refer to Tales content.
Ocs (Orginal Character) are allowed as long as a Tales character is in it somewhere.
AU (Alternative Universe), self insert or Crossovers are okay BUT they need to contain tales characters. But also here Ocs are allowed.
Try to keep the texts in paragraphs. It'll be easier to read and to judge.
You are allowed to write a fanfiction that will go on after the contest but keep in mind you're only allowed to submit one work to the contest so it would be preferable taht you send us the first chapter or we won't be able to understand a thing. xD
Doesn't matter if you're used to writing or are a beginner. Everyone is allowed in this contest! :D

The judges will look on certain criteria. Which is:
1. Descriptions (Can you give the reader a good image of the situation or a character ect.)
2. How well you handle the language (some spelling mistakes are fine but we will look at how you build sentences. Also keep in mind do not use internet speak, example; u, rly, y, gg ect.)
3. How the writers' plot is well thought out. Like does the reader easily identify what the story is about and understands what's going on. (And yes this requires that you have a plot :P)

:iconrinnu500: Will write up the criteria for Poetry soon! :) But it shall come hopefully in just some hours!

:iconrinnu500: here~~ For the poetry part of this contest things will be a tad different.
Mainly, we will be focusing on whether or not the poem speaks to us. The message it gives doesn't matter (but props if it gives similar thoughts to everyone). Poetry is a bit difficult to judge, to be fair...

Also, proper grammar will be stricter for poems. As they are mostly shorter than the average fanfiction, we will be looking at the grammar and structure more (so you better make sure that line break was on purpose~).

All in all, it will mostly be judged on creativity (In the content, not whether it's Haiku or free verse etc) and how well you implement a Tales theme in the poem.

A maximum of 500 words is allowed. Should many of you wish for more... let us know in a note or a comment!
:iconrinnu500: out~

If there is more questions don't hesitate to ask! :) We'll do our best to answer them! :) // :iconwindwakerwolf:

Question, does this group accept OC's as long as it is from one of the series here? Or is it strictly canon only?

Hello! If you wanna submit anything wth your Oc in it you need to include a official  Tales of Character in it as well. We do not accept only Oc currently. :)
