Round 11 coming 1 January 2022
Welcome to the World Weaver’s Championship!
There are many contests on W.com which look at genre stories or answers to a given prompt.
The World Weavers’ Championship is my effort to expand on where the other WDC contests leave off. Here we’ll tackle the set, the cultures and politics and the part your world plays in your story. That’s not to say that this is a strictly fantasy or sci-fi contest! This applies just as much to the fictional representations of contemporary or historical settings.
Round 11 begins in
First place is a 50k awardicon and
a Worldbuilding merit badge or equivalent GPs
Second place is a 25k awardicon or 25k GPs
Third place is a 10k awardicon or 10k GPs
conditional awards ▼
Round Ten will run from 7 to 22 August 2021 (14 days : 7 prompts)
Every second day of the Championship a new prompt will be issued at 7pm BST (2pm) WDC time. Contestants then have 48 hours in which to compose and upload their entry. Late entries will be marked down and more than three late entries disqualifies the contestant.
Once an entry is late, it doesn't matter how late. Concentrate on the new prompt first. You can go back to missed prompts at any point before the final deadline of 28 August 2021.
You must complete every prompt of the round to qualify for the winners’ podium. It’s recommended you register your interest before the first prompt is issued.
Each entry must be linked in a post in this forum using either the LD-item or F-entry format.
All entries must be newly written for the contest.
There is no minimum word count for each entry, but please provide a word count for each entry.
All ratings and genres are accepted.
Editing an entry after submission is not allowed.
