More Fun and Readers' Choice Voting!

The entry period for the "Elemental" Contest is now closed. I will be posting final entries as soon as I can get them up. But the fun is not over!

First, we will be having three heavy-hitting guest writers share their visions of the contest photo and join the excitement. Also, in keeping with Clarity contest tradition, I will share mine. (I may even challenge you to identify just what the heck the contest photo is!) But the REAL fun of this time is Readers' Choice voting. Keep reading!

Voting for the Readers' Choice Award is now open.

This portion of the contest is open to everyone who entered. Here are the rules:

  1. Contest participants are invited to vote for their top 5 favorite entries by emailing their votes to jevanswriter at yahoo dot com.
  2. Please identify yourself by entry number and list your votes from 1 to 5 with 1 being your top vote.
  3. I will award 5 points for your 1st vote, 4 points for your 2nd vote, 3 points for your 3rd, 2 points for your 4th, and 1 point for your 5th. If you submit fewer than 5 votes, I'll award the least number of votes possible for each choice (for example, if you vote for only 2 entries, I'll award 2 and 1 points, respectively).
  4. You may not vote for your own entry.
  5. At the close of Readers' Choice Award voting, Aine will tally the points. The winner will be the entry with the most points.
  6. I reserve the right to award additional Readers' Choice Awards with or without prizes.

As you read, please keep the comments coming. Feedback and appreciation is the fuel along the lonely road of writing. If you find folks whose writing moves you, please visit their blogs or ask where you can find more. Enjoy your own judging, and above all, have fun!

Cast your votes before Monday, July 25th, at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time (U.S.). At that time, I will let you know when the winners will be announced.

Stay tuned for the guest writers over the next couple of days!!

Did you get Jamie for #3? That would be wicked cool.

Precie said...

Hmmm...interesting speculation, Rosey. Jamie? or Jaye? or Anne? or Ello? or or or...SO MANY ALUMNAE...

I'm guessing Jaye, though any of them would be totally radical, I mean, wonderfully awesome.

And thanks again, Jason and Aine, for all of this!
