The 11th Annual Pros Big Bang Challenge

We're Back and are proud to announce ...

The 11th Annual Pros Big Bang Challenge!

For those of you who haven’t seen a Big Bang Challenge before, it’s a collaborative effort between writers and artists. Writers sign up to write a story with a minimum word count. Later in the process, artists claim a story based on an anonymous story summary and produce at least one piece of art to go with it. The art can be an illustration, a manip, a vid or any other visual representation of the writer's story that can be displayed on the internet

This year's word count is 10,000, but please remember 10,000 is the minimum word count and if you would like to write 30,000, 50,000 or even 100,000 we will cheer you on all the way.

This is the time to think about that fic you started but RL got in the way, or the fic that just needs to be polished . . . or you just found languishing on a floppy disk. Hear the rally cry to join us!!!

And now for the schedule.............

Writer sign-ups will start on the 1st February and run until the 1st March.
Artist sign-ups will start on the 1st May and run until the 31st May.
Rough drafts are due at the start of July and the artist's claims day will happen just after that.
Final stories and art are due in late September and posting begins in October.

And you can find the more detailed schedule on the ci5_boxoftricks profile page and on the left hand side of the main comm page.

Of course, even if you don't plan on signing up, please do feel free to join the community. You can help by cheerleading, volunteering to beta, providing prompts, and generally joining in the festivities.

So fire up your word processor, sharpen your pencils, fine-tune your Photoshop skills, gear up your vidding software and get ready for the 2020 Box of Tricks!
