SHL History Week Contest
#1
(This post was last modified: Yesterday, 03:15 PM by artermis.)

What is this?

The 1st Annual SHL History Week Contest.

I plan to do an edition every season

This will essentially be a SHL History writing contest.

Hit me up if you can come up with a snazzier name.

What's in it for us?

Cold hard cash

I got a pile o' money and I don't plan on recreating.

Prizes up for grabs:
Best in Show - $2M per entrant (Currently at $4M)
Best of the SHL - $1M per entrant (Currently at $1M)
Best of the SMJHL - $1M per entrant (Currently at $2M)
Best of the IIHF - $1M per entrant (Currently at $1M)
Best of the rest (miscellaneous) - $1M per entrant
People's Choice - $1M per entrant (Currently at $2M)

Awards and amounts subject to change, as anyone who'd like to add an award and throw in their own money to the pool, hit me up!

I will update this as the contest week progresses to reflect the amounts due to entrants joining as well.

How do I enter?

Easy: just PM or tag me on the site or on Discord with a link to your entry, so I know it's official.

It can be something you've already written, or it can be something new.

If you're wondering what we're looking for, Here's a link to the History Book.

In short, you can write whatever you want.

It can be first-person, or third-person.
It can be an account, or a report.
It can be an overview, or a brief.
It can be in-character, or out-of-character.
Yes, it can be about on-site topics as well.

Everything from a site retrospective to a Players' Tribune-type first person account.

Everything is welcome

What else should I know?

If you'd like to be a judge, hit me up:

Current Judges:
artermis

Right now all awards will be decided by judge ballots, save for People's Choice, which will be by on-site poll.

The best and most impactful entries deemed by the judges will be added to the SHL History Book.

The Deadline is June 21st at 9PM Eastern

Good luck and have fun!

Oh, I'm completely open to suggestions btw, just trying to get this off the ground.

Feel free to ask if you have any questions!

Updated prize pools:

I had to change the prize rules or else I'll go bankrupt (thanks Pen Laughing ) unless the SHL HO/SHL Media Head want to sanction this and thus fund it, for now instead of for every entry it'll be every entrant (user).

Best in Show - $2M per entrant (Currently at $4M)
Best of the SHL - $1M per entrant (Currently at $1M)
Best of the SMJHL - $1M per entrant (Currently at $2M)
