The FFVII Citadel is holding a small Kingdom Hearts-themed competition, with official Kingdom Hearts desktop calendars as the prizes! Imported from Japan and only produced for a limited time, these 2007 calendars come in the form of a small hardcover book and stand; each two-page spread covers a calendar month and features full-color artwork by Kingdom Hearts manga artist Shiro Amano.
To win one of these calendars, you must simply write a drabble-- a miniature fanfic that's exactly one hundred (100) words in length. This drabble can be either Kingdom Hearts or Final Fantasy VII-themed, but if you decide to set it in the KH world, at least one of the FFVII characters featured in that series (Aerith, Cloud, Cid, Tifa, Yuffie, and/or Sephiroth) must be present.
The authors of the three best entries will each receieve a calendar.
- As stated above, the fanfic must be set in either the Kingdom Hearts or Final Fantasy VII worlds. If Kingdom Hearts-themed, at least one of that game's FFVII characters must be present.
- Also, fanfics should conform to the drabble format and be exactly 100 words long (not including a title, which is strictly optional).
- Entries can be sent either in the body of an email or as an attachment. The only acceptable file formats for attachments are .htm/.html, .doc, .rtf, and .txt. Links to entries will not be accepted.
- Entries with "mature" or "adult" content will not be accepted. Please refer to the Citadel's General Submission Policies for further information.
- All entries must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, and must include the subject "Kingdom Hearts Competition". When sending your entry, please include your pen name and a personal link (if available). Only one entry will be accepted per person.
- The deadline for all entries is
midnight (GMT), December 21st, 2006 midnight (GMT), December 28th, 2006.
- Staff members of the FFVII Citadel, the Citadel Forums, and the Citadel deviantART club, as well as webmasters of affiliated sites, may not enter the competition.
- Only the original author of a work should send in an entry. Any entry which is found to be stolen, copied, or otherwise plagarized from another author/source will be immediately disqualified.
- Any entry which doesn't meet these rules will be thrown out without notice.
At the end of the competition, the winners (and possibly some honorable mentions) will be posted on a special page at the Citadel. Also, if you have any questions about the competition, please contact me at the address above.
