We’ve made it to double digits and we’re hurtling towards the end of the year. That means only two more competitions after this one and another step closer to the Shell Case Shorts Anthology.
I’m taking a slightly different tack with this month’s prize, paying forward some extraordinary generosity showed to me by those fine chaps at Studio Sparta. I refer to the two Firestorm Invasion start sets they sent me to review. To keep both would simply be greedy so the prize is nothing less than the Dindrenzi Federation kickstart set.
Rules are as follows:
Write a short story of between 2,000 & 5,000 words set in any established wargaming IP.
Your work is your own but intellectual property rests squarely with the companies in question and is only used under fair use. I reserve the right to publish any submissions in a strictly non-profit capacity. All published writers will be credited accordingly.
Submissions should attempt to evoke the IP the story is based on.
All entries must be received by midnight UK time Wednesday 31st October 2012 after which a single winner will be chosen. Submissions received after this will not be considered.
1 submission per person.
Work believed to be plagiarised will be disqualified.
All submissions must be sent as a Word document attached to an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
[Any spam from entrants will result in disqualification]
Submissions must include the entrants name, a contact email address, Twitter name if applicable and the title of the story.
1 winner will be chosen and notified by email.
The winning entry will be published initially on The Shell Case blog and later in a free to download anthology.
No discussion will be entered into, my decision is final.
The prize may not be exchanged for its cash value or an alternative. However, I reserve the right to substitute the prize if necessary.
Good luck and have fun!
