Description:
bi-weekly drabble & oneshot fanfic contests for all Batman fandoms & pairings


batfic_contest holds bi-weekly fan fiction contests for all Batman fandoms. Each contest will have its own theme and word count limit, alternating between drabbles (100-500 words) and oneshots (500+ words). Voting will take place to determine the winners, and banners will be awarded to display.

Rules:

1) You must be a member of the community to post, and a member or watcher to vote.

2) Fics must be brand new, written specifically for this contest. You may not enter fics that have been previously published at other archives.

3) Post your fics directly to this community as described below in the section "How to Enter the Contest". Do not fake-cut to another journal.

4) Please refrain from posting your fics at other journals/communities/archives until voting is over.

5) Fics may be based on any of the Batman-related comic books, movies, TV shows, or cartoon series (for example, Batman Begins, Batman Returns, Batman: The Animated Series, The Batman, Birds of Prey, Gotham Central, etc.)

6) You may write in any genres. Alternate Universe (AU) and Alternate Reality (AR) fics are allowed. Crossovers with any series are allowed, including but not limited to other DC Comics fandoms/characters (for example, Justice League, Lex Luthor, Static Shock, etc.)

7) You may write any Batman-related characters or pairings. Original characters are allowed as long as they are clearly set within the Batman universe. Real Person Fiction is not allowed.

8) Drabble entries are limited to 100-500 words. Oneshot entries must be at least 500 words long. There is no word limit for a oneshot, but it must be a complete story in one chapter, not a multi-chapter fic.

9) No adult content allowed. No limes/lemons. Fics may not go above an R-rating. Topics of an adult/mature nature such as pedophilia and incest are not allowed, regardless of rating.

10) No character or pairing bashing.

11) Constructive criticism is allowed, but no flames.

12) You are allowed to enter more than one fic for each theme contest.

13) Fics must be spell-checked and possess a reasonable attempt at proper grammar and punctuation. If you need help finding a beta reader, please check out batfic_betas.

14) Members may only post contest entries to this community. This is not a general Batman or fanfic community.
