    2022 Word Pairs Forum Challenge

    It's time to end the year with as much excitement as was generated by the recent Football World Cup! With the forum the heart of ISC, we're giving you a special forum challenge for eight days, starting today.

    What you have to do: You have been given a list of 6 word pairs. You must write something unique on all the word pairs, but no stories or poems and the like, within the given dates mentioned in the rules below. Please give a link at the end of each thread to this announcement, so that others will know those are entries for this reward program. For each thread, put an appropriate title that may or may not mention the word pair in it. Submit the threads in Discussion Forums >> About IndiaStudyChannel>> Competition Entries. Then submit a list of all 6 entries in a single response to this thread.

    1. To be eligible for the prizes, you must write on all the word pairs (that is, you cannot be selective).
    2. The write-up on a word pair should be submitted on any two days from 24th to 31st December 2022 (both dates inclusive), with three on one day, and three on another day. For example, you can submit 3 on the 27th and 3 on the 30th. You don't need to submit in the exact same order as given in the list. You can decide on which of the three word pairs you want to post on which day.
    3. Each thread must be in English and must include the word pair together at least once in the text, either literally or in an associated format (see the example given below). The text can be short or long, but not overly so. Do not put any links in the text. The word pair can be related to anything, such as films, books, sports, politics, etc but no references to weapons, medications, and the like. Naturally, adhere to the forum posting guidelines.

    Keep in mind that we are looking for unique write-ups and not the usual clichéd text (see the example given). You need not, too, take the words literally. You can use the word pairs in different formats (adverbs, adjectives, etc) and have the same/similar association. An example- if you are given the word pair 'Here and There' you can consider something similar, like 'Hither and Thither'. Also, instead of writing something about misplaced things and kept here and there, you could think of writing about it in association with travel or acquiring an education in different places.

    The Prizes
    1. Grand Prize: One and only one member will be awarded Rs. 200/- for the best complete set of six entries.
    2. Second prize: Rs.100/- (for up to two participants).
    3. Every thread of non-winning participants submitted for this contest may also be given enhanced points and cc. We will also give 20 points and 20 cc for the best responses (as many as we think are worthy of it), which may be in the same thread or in different threads.
    4. A surprise bonus prize will be announced after the closing date of the contest (31st December 2022).

    Important: In order to be eligible for the Grand Prize and other prizes, you must give a list of all the 6 threads in this announcement thread. Please submit it as a list within one response, and give links to each, so that the jury panel can check them out right away. It is suggested that as you go along, start submitting the URLs in a response here, rather than wait till you have put up all the threads, otherwise later you may forget to put one, and will become ineligible for a prize!

    2. Song and Dance
