*Thumbsup*The Judging:*Thumbsdown*


*Reading*  Stories will be judged based on originality and good ol' "scare factor."  Gory doesn't necessarily mean scary in my opinion.  Think hard and come up with something that will make the hair on the back of my neck stand on end!

*Reading*  Hey now, these prizes aren't cheap!  Please take the time to proofread your work.  While I am most concerned about content, technical errors will play a role in judging as well.  You may edit your story as many times as you like until the contest ends. *Exclaim* Any editing done after closing and before results are announced will result in disqualification.

*Reading*  All entries will be read and commented on.

*Reading*  Please allow two weeks for judging.  Winners will be announced no later than October 5th, 2011.
