Monthly contests


I am pleased to announce that there will be an official Neopoet monthly contest. If everything can get put in place in time we will have the first one in January. Keep an eye peeled as the topic and form will be announced the first week in January and entries will be accepted until Jan, 23. The contest series is going to be called "The Point Of the Spear" . This will reflect that the winners are to be considered a part of the cutting edge on site. So trim those pencils and wake up the muse.

The prizes will be actual prizes mailed to the winners, not just recognition. BTW there will be a yearly winner picked from among the monthly winners. Also, anybody who is involved in the judging can enter but will not be elegible to win.........stan

Great to ear this announcement. I certainly won't like to be on the judge's

At least to begin with the monthly contests will be judged by a single workshop leader who will change with each month. The yearly winner will be voted on by all shop leaders. And, no, we won't be letting general membership know who each monthly judge is lol. Their job will be hard enough without knowing people are looking over their shoulders.........or offering bribes lmao....stan

Luckily for me I only peeled one eye and it refused to look out at anything.
I had a glass one fitted with a windscreen washer and wiper, but it just don't work.
I am learning Brail at the moment so that I miss nothing, I have asked Sparrow to write this short note.
Trod on me dog again, it's good that he understands and gives out unconditional love to even me, a lying toad.
Will look out with squinted breath for your comp, Take care out there, will talk rubbish again later, just ignore all the words before "this"
"This" yours J Sparrow..

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

Unfortunately my having been off line so long has caused me to have to delay first contest until February. This will give me a bit of time to hammer out a few details and also get the rules in place and posted. I hope ya'll are looking forward to this as much as I am........stan
