    Ancestral Tribute Contest

    Ancestral Tribute

    As the saying goes, everyone is someone’s child. Unfortunately, sometimes that means the parents don’t get much time in the spotlight. The latest contest from FanOfMostEverything (that’s me!) aims to correct that.

    The prompt is fairly straightforward: Write a story starring one or more parents without their children. Now, this isn’t license to just write Pinkie because Li’l Cheese exists. “Parents” is here defined as those whose primary narrative role in pony canon was raising one or more other characters. (Note that biological parenthood is not required. If you have a Lofty and Holiday idea that missed the deadline for Bicyclette’s contest a few months ago, now’s your second chance for glory. Though the judging will be all the harsher given the longer prep time.)

    3rd Annual Cozy Glow Short Story Contest

    As we all know, no filly was as determined; as steadfast; as laser-focused on achieving her goals as Cozy Glow. Undeterred by Tartarus, brutal physical and magical assaults, avalanches, and universal contempt, she battled on to fall only to the combined might of all of Equestria.

    We can do no better than to emulate her fortitude. Through two years of global pandemic we uplifted her, and in these times of economic uncertainty we will uplift her again. The Cozy Glow group is delighted to present the third annual short story contest!

    Guidelines

    All stories must:

    -Adhere to the site rules

    -Be between 2.5k and 15k words in length.

    -Contain Cozy Glow as a central character and be classifiable under one of the prompts.

    -Be written in English.

    May Pairings Contest 2022!


    Hello everyone!

    May is nearly upon us, and with its return comes a celebrated tradition. That’s right: once again, it is time for May Pairings. 

    What is the May Pairings Contest?

    If you don’t know, the May Pairings contest is all about original, rare, or unique ships that aren’t afraid to explore unique dynamics between characters. This means that stories about Lyra and Bon Bon, Vinyl and Octavia, or Rarity and Twilight wouldn’t qualify. Rather, we want to see stories about Autumn Blaze and Lemon Hearts! Daring Do and Treehugger! Octavia and Applejack! You get the picture.

    Story contest: Who Crossed Over My Little Pony? (1/19/22 -- 4/1/22)

    There's a lot of ways we could describe MLP. A passion. A casual interest. The reason why most of us are here and yes, I said most. But ultimately, it's a cartoon. Animation. Still images which change slightly from frame to frame, creating the illusion of movement. And in that, it's one among many. One more example of an art that's been around for over a century. And some of the writers on this site like to take that cartoon and cross it over with other properties.

    All I'm doing is giving you a direction. If you want to enter this contest, then you'll have an extensive choice of IPs to cross over with. Extensive, and... if you do it right, if you're trying to win -- maybe just a little... looney.

    Crackship Contest: 2022 Jan 06 - Mar 03


    commission from the amazing Shaslan

    Welcome!

    Hello friends!

    Have you ever read a fic that romantically paired two characters you couldn't imagine ever interacting, much less dating? And then were blown away by how well the author made it work? Well, that is crackships, baby! And that is what this contest will be about, until 2022 March 03.

    Of course, picking two random characters, declaring that they're in love for no discernible reason, and then calling it a day isn't quite what we are looking for!

    Criteria!

    Entries will be considered and rated based on a few metrics, including the creativity of every ship, how the ship itself is handled, and the dynamic and characterization.

    Science Fiction Contest! 11 Nov 2021 - 06 Jan 2022


    source: commission from daOtterGuy

    Welcome!

    Hello friends!

    I've been doing some thinking. Wouldn't it be nice if there were more works exploring the ramifications of scientific ideas and technological innovations through stories about pastel-colored magic horses?

    Well, that is what this contest is for! Over the next eight weeks, until 2022 January 06, let's write some great science fiction!

    Prizes!

    Note that all prize amounts will be sent by PayPal. If you are unable to receive money by PayPal, I, Bicyclette, will try my very best to arrange an alternative that works for you, but please be aware that it may not work out.

    M/M Shipping Contest! 16 Sep - 11 Nov 2021

    Welcome!

    Hello friends!

    It's time to show some love to the many wonderful male characters we have seen throughout the run of our beloved show, and the G5 movie! And what's the best way to do this? By getting them onboard the S.S. Romance, of course!

    So welcome, one and all, to the M/M Shipping Contest! Before November 11, 8PM EDT, your only duty is to take two (or more!) of your favorite stallions (or drakes, or dudes of any species!) to Shiptown. Maybe they're falling in love? Maybe they're saving the world together? Maybe they're facing a tragic separation? In all the forms a story about the love between stallions can take, we are here to celebrate it together.

    Oh, and there are a bunch of prizes, too!

    Sunset Shimmer x Sunset Shimmer Contest (October 1, 2021 to October 28, 2021.)

    We have another contest down the barrel! And it’s some very curious shipping!


    (by nendo)

    Story Theme

    It is about time that Sunset Shimmer gets shipped with the most compelling and complex Equestria Girls villain of all: Sunset Shimmer! That’s right! This is a Sunset Shimmer x Sunset Shimmer Shipping Contest!

    What? But How Does That Work?

    In so many ways! Just off the top of my head:

    • Sunset’s originally-human counterpart!
    • Sunset’s demon form as a separate character from her, somehow!
    • Time travel!
    • Magic cloning!
    • Alternate timelines!
    • Changelings!

    Or think of your own, even better way!

    Cozy Glow Short Story Contest!

    Here’s another contest about everyone’s favorite filly.

    Unless you like Twist or something.

    Greetings! Following the success of the 2020 Cozy Glow Short Story Contest, the Cozy Glow group is happy to announce a new contest for 2021. That so many writers and readers take joy in and adore our precocious Pegasus is not a surprise; rather it’s the lack of canon material released in the interim devoted to this precious, fragile life (given, as we know, such short shrift by the professed “Guardians of Harmony”) that is unexpected.

    And so, please join us once again as we address this disturbing gap in the storyline by celebrating the ambition, courage, and charismatic leadership of the best of all possible fillies, Cozy Glow!

Competition » Contest: Generation 5 Bingo Contest! · 9:20pm Sep 18th, 2021

As the new generation approaches, some things stay the same. Like contests. Check this one out!

Are you ready to make history? To write one of the first G5 fics on the site?

This writing contest has an unusual premise: each author gets a different prompt.


Prompt cards look a bit like this.

Authors who sign up will be privately sent a prompt card with five random ideas that could be characters, places, items, or abstract concepts. They then try to write a story incorporating those five ideas.

Rules

There are 300 places available. Enter by commenting here or on my blog post.

Stories should be published on Fimfiction, follow all site rules, and be up to 10,000 words long. Your story should incorporate at least two of the ideas from your prompt card, and up to all five if possible.

Your random prompt is final. No second chances!

Stories will be judged on how well the judges enjoyed them, how well they incorporated the five ideas on their card, and on correct use of English.

We also need judges and editors to help produce the best results. Volunteers are welcome for both positions.

Full details available on this blog post.

Schedule

  • APPLY NOW! - Comment below to sign up.
  • The movie hits Netflix on 23 September.
  • Prompts - 9 October 2021 - I’ll send you a PM with your prompt. You can still join after this date, as long as there are positions available.
  • Deadline - 9 January 2022 - Stories must be published, completed and added to [url=]the contest folder.

Prizes

The top 5 stories will get reviews from PresentPerfect and PaulAsaran.

Join up and make Twilight’s father proud!

I've been joining a lot of contests lately.

I'm gonna join this one too. I've been thinking a lot about gen 5 lately.

This is going to be... interesting. Good thing I have netflix so I can see g5 when it comes out.

Yeah, sign me up.

Alright. Maybe I’ll be inspired by the prompt. Let’s do this!

Sounds interesting I'll try.

I’m up for it. I need to get back to writing.

Can't wait for another bingo contest, let's do it!

Count me in :heart:

I'll see what I can do.

Put me in, Coach!

Comment posted by Decokenite deleted Sep 21st, 2021

Yeah, I going to give a try on this contest.

I never do contest before… so this will be my first time.

Count me in, please.

Yeah, I'd like to give this a try.

Sure, I guess I'm for giving this a try.

Count me in chief

Oh, why not. That's a timeframe that even I should be able to deliver on, and I am somewhat curious about G5. Let's give it a whirl.

You know what, let me see what I can do. That means I'll join.

I mean, heck. I was probably gonna try and write one, anyway. Count me in!

Sounds interesting. + random is great. Count me in

With that timeframe, I may even be able to make up my mind on a thousand words, count me in!

That's 50 places taken now, out of 300.

Ooooh I'd be happy to join ^^

Color me intrigued.

I'm in, if I've still got a chance. Bless RNJesus for showing me this thread only a day late. Also, the date of the movie is a bit off.

5584752
Do you pray to RNJesus too?

Hahaha I haven't heard that term since I swore off gatcha games two years ago :rainbowlaugh:

I'll give this a try. I'm sure with that kind of time period I could come up with something, hopefully.

Well, I won’t be able to watch the movie for a little bit... but I’ve already cut my teeth on G5 writing, so I’m game for more once I have some source material to work with.

If there’s still space, I’m game.

Sure, hit me.

I'll join =)

Having seen the post-apocalyptic horror on offer in Gen 5, I'm ready to dive into Hell nose-first once again, so sign me up!

Hey, can I join in? I've been bored lately, and have little original ideas. I'm kind of hoping for a minor/background character prompt, but the more known the better. And btw, please not a dark prompt, unless it's about a monster.

sounds fun, I'm ready to join
:pinkiehappy:

The movie was impressive, with plenty of possibilities for character expansion (which might not survive when G5 episodes show up, but fun regardless). Please send me a contest prompt.

Why am I just seeing this now?? Sounds fun, sign me up!

Eh why not I'll sign up.

I'll give it a shot.

Count me in! Sounds like a blast

Might as well revitalize my brain. I'm in.

I'm excited for this. I can't wait to get my prompt.

Sign me up!

I've jotted down enough of my own G5 headcanons to fill months' worth of writing already, but what the hay, toss a crazy one onto the top of the pile.

Throwin' my fin into the ring. 🦈

The first contest entry is in already!

5596090
i dont suppose you could clarify what 'up to 10,000' means. A maximum, or should it be in a similar range close to 10,000?

5622662
Anything between 1000 words (the site minimum) and 10,000 (the contest maximum)
