Snap Writing ContestSun - Yeh contest aapke naam (this contest, for you)
Based on Sun's concept, we are organizing a contest in which you have to write on a given topic within a fixed duration of time. The challenge is how quickly you can submit a good write-up spontaneously.
What you have to do: Whenever I am online, I will give a topic to members who wish to participate. If I am going to go offline, I will post a response to indicate so, and then, again, mention when I am back online. You have to put in a response, stating that you are available to write and for how many minutes you are likely to be online. For example, you can say 'I am online for the next 1 hour'. Try to be online for at least 30 minutes. That way, if I am doing editing or other work, I can check this thread a little later, and also you can see the topic I give you and are able to submit the write-up in the given time as mentioned in the rules below.
I may give topics to more than one participant at a time. That is, I may list the topics for each member who responded within a single response, so then, within the given time, all three have to submit their write-ups on the respective topics assigned to them.
To be fair, since you or I may have to suddenly go offline or lose connectivity, you will be given more than one chance. That is, this contest will be organized over a span of two days, today, and tomorrow. In case you were unable to submit a writeup on the topic given the first time, you will get the opportunity to participate again, but not on the same topic that was given to you earlier. You will then again have to indicate that you are online and a fresh topic will be given to you. Do make it a point to correct all errors in spelling and grammar.
1. The write-up should be on the given topics, which will all be related to education. However, you may interpret it in a non-educational setting and write it as you wish. As a challenge, the same topic may also be given to more than one member, in which case the second member will need to submit another variation of it.
2. Avoid lengthy write-ups, submitting it the way you would a forum response. You may use the edit button at any time to make corrections in English and typo, but do not change the main text.
3. The write-up must be submitted within 20 minutes of the topic assigned to you, in a response to this thread itself.
4. A member can participate twice. That is, you can submit two write-ups, either both on the same day, or one today and one tomorrow. Each time, you will be submitting on a different topic. However, even if both are good, the better write-up will get the prize.
We will give the three best write-ups Rs.50/- and 50 points. Other participants may get enhanced points up to 20 with 20cc depending on the decision of the jury panel. Like any other reward program, editors are welcome to participate and only non-participating editors will be on the jury panel.
