Research Writing Center recently launched a new Facebook contest for freelance writers to share their humorous stories for cash prizes.
Online PR News – 25-October-2011 – – The folks at Research Writing Center successfully launched a new contest on the company’s Facebook page on October 13. The contest provides the team of freelance writers who work with Research Writing Center an opportunity to tell some of the funny stories they have encountered during their work. The rules are that the stories must be about freelance writing and they must contain humor. The contest runs until November 14th so we invite any freelance writer 18 years or older to submit his or her funny stories for cash prizes.
The cash prizes for winning entries are as follows: grand prize is $200; second prize is $125, and third prize is $100. There are also two runner up cash prize categories for the top fourth and fifth submissions, which will pay $50 and $25 respectively. All currencies are in U.S. denominations. A few other rules apply. First of all, the story must relate to freelance writing in some way, whether it be an actual story from the writer’s freelance experience, or that of a freelance writer you know. Fictional stories are acceptable as long as they remain believable. The second main rule is the story has to be genuinely funny to a wide audience – no inside jokes please. The third important rule is that your word count must not exceed 550 words, and please do not submit stories that are under 300 words. In addition, the story should have a title that attracts attention; it needs to be appealing and memorable. Winners will be chosen in response to how many Hands-Up votes their entry receives on Research Writing Center’s Facebook Fan Page.
Other relevant rules are as follows: please check grammar, spelling, and punctuation before you submit and please do not plagiarize your story. Also, please keep your story suitable for a PG audience. In other words, no sex, no violence, and no profane language. You are only allowed one entry per writer, so make sure you choose your best story. The winners will receive notification on November 29th, 2011. Please note, Research Writing Center reserves the right to disqualify an entry, even if it is a winning entry, if suspicion arises that the voting methods on Facebook have been tampered with. For example, if we think an entrant has violated the voting rules by voting for his or her entry through multiple Facebook accounts or email addresses, the entry will be disqualified.
