JamCon 2021

JamCon 4.0: It’s Back, Baby!

Welcome to the SCP Wiki 2021 JamCon! You know the drill! This year’s contest will be another 72-hour JamCon, but other than that, the drill is the same. The voting period extends for one week from the close of each theme.

The Contest

The contest will be broken up into three periods of 24 hours each. At the beginning of each period, a THEME will be announced. From the moment the THEME is announced, contestants will have exactly 24 hours to write an article based on that theme. All contest articles posted for each period must adhere to that period's theme - if you write an article for the first period but only post it in the second period, that article will be disqualified.

The voting period consists of one week from the close of each individual theme.

Winners will be determined by vote count at the end of the voting period. There will be first place winners for each category (ie SCP, Tale, GOI Format) for each theme, as well as a Grand Prize Winner for the entrant who writes for all three themes and amasses the highest overall vote count.

You are free to solicit as much critique as you can get within the time period.

Rules:

  1. Authors may submit any number of entries per theme. Only the three highest-rated entries (highest entry per theme) will be considered for voting totals.
  2. All types of articles - SCPs, Tales, and GOI Formats - are allowed.
  3. Entries can be as long or as short as you want, stretching over multiple articles or centered on a single page.
  4. Authors do not have to submit entries for all three themes; you may pick and choose which themes to submit to, but only authors who submit entries for all three themes will be considered for the Grand Prize.
  5. No significant edits after the entry has been posted. If you wouldn't do it to someone else's work, don't do it to your own until the contest ends.
  6. Contest entries will go through the normal deletion process. As there is no limit on the number of entries you may post, you may always reenter. However, you may not repost a new version of a previously deleted entry in the contest. You can always submit these documents to the site again, but they cannot reenter the contest.
  7. Entries must be new. You cannot edit or suggest an existing document for this contest.
  8. As soon as a theme is announced, entries for that theme are OPEN. As soon as the NEXT theme is announced, entries for the PREVIOUS theme are CLOSED. You can still post articles for closed themes, but they will not be considered as valid entries.
  9. No collaborative works for this contest, articles must be by a single author.
  10. Tag your entries with 'jam-con2021’, and the day's theme.

Winners will be chosen through total upvotes. At the conclusion of the contest, a post will be made by the judges announcing both winners and awarding special prizes to deserving entries. The judges for this contest are taylor_itkintaylor_itkin and ProcyonLotorProcyonLotor - please PM them with any further questions you might have.
