Here ye, here ye!

There will be a writing contest starting May 1. This contest will be a big one with 3 different categories. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 submissions in each category for a total of 9 prizes. The 3 categories are:

--Character Biography: Unlike the last contest, entries will not be writing their own bios. This will be explained at a later date.

--Case Introduction: Entries will write a case introduction with the same parameters required in Sleuth Noir. It will be the intent that these intros will be submitted after the contest is over for Noir cases.

--Freestyle: The parameters of this section will be described later. The good news here is that bad spelling and poor grammar will not hurt any entry. This one is just for raw originality.

Right now, I am NOT looking for entries. I am looking for judges. I will be a judge, and 10 more are needed.

Important: If you elect to be a judge, you may not be a contestant.
The following judge specialists are needed:
--Expert spellers. 2 needed.
--Grammar experts. 2 needed.
--Case Intro syntax expert. 1 needed.
--Creativity judges. 5 needed.

Judges must be active members. Judges must be available between today and through May. The latter part of May will be the busiest.

For those that will want to be contestants, you will have an opportunity in April to sign up. A contestant may enter any 1, 2, or all 3 categories. Anyone can enter (except judges). BUT, only subscribers will be prize eligible. If you want to subscribe for the first time and get a discount, please see Lady Jas about getting a Sidekick coupon.

Hopefully, this event will incorporate a large amount of active sleuths. The more involved, the more fun it will be. Let's unite and make happy memories!

If you're needing one more creativity judge, I'm interested. If not, then I'll join as a writer.

Yes! to both of Botsie and M.L.

I just need to know what category each of you wants to do.

M.L., you can both judge and enter. You just can't be a judge in your entry category.

Just to clear the air, I accepted M. Lacrimosa and Botsie Boots as judges even though they are not subscribed at the time of this posting. I had previously stated that judges should be subscribed simply because I did not want judges whose involvement with Sleuth was dubious.

Both ML and BB have been around over 1,500 days. Also, I have gotten to know both of these two personally during my time in Sleuth. In my humble opinion, that removes any doubt for me as to their love of Sleuth.

Along these lines, I am extremely grateful for ALL the judges who have volunteered so far. This is a great panel of not just superb sleuths, but also friends.

There is still room for more friendly volunteers. :)

Judges,

Please score things as you see fit and pm your scores to me. Do not post them.

When you send me your scores, just tell me your overall scale:
1-100, 1-20, or whatever.

Thank you all!!

I guess I didn't read it clearly in the directions. Either way I appreciate it. I will be subbed in the next month.
