Hey guys, the new forums have been up for five days now, and as we work out the kinks, we’re seeing some great adoption rates for it! Many original stories have begun to be posted, and several translations as well; The Great Ruler (大主宰), being worked on by jn19930, and Child of Light (光之子) being worked on by ruze, in particular have had a good number of chapters uploaded. The former was written by Heavenly Silkworm Potato (the author of BTTH), while the latter was written by Tang Jia San Shao (the author of Douluo Dalu and Skyfire Avenue), so if you are caught up on your other reading, I encourage you to give them a spin!
With the forum working, one of the things I’ve wanted to do so time now is have an artwork competition; with literally tens of thousands of daily readers, I’m sure some of you are really talented artists! I’m thus announcing our first ever Coiling Dragon artwork competition, running from July 23rd until August 23rd, with cash prizes totaling $350!
There will be two competitions, held on temporary subforums in the Original Creations forum; Competition A is for the best map of the Yulan continent (based on both accuracy and beauty), while Competition B is an ‘open’ competition for the depiction of any event that has occurred thus far in Coiling Dragon!
The rules: Each person can submit a single entry for each competition (in other words, you can submit one for A and one for B). For competition ‘B’, the title of the post should be self-explanatory regarding the scene which the picture is about which has been made! Submissions will be accepted between July 23rd and August 15th; on August 16th, the forums will be locked, and a voting procedure (to be revealed later) will begin, ending on August 23rd with the announcement of the top three in each category!
Note – There must be at least six entries per category for a third place prize to be awarded, at least four entries per category for a second place prize to be awarded, and at least two entries per category for a first place prize to be awarded.
The rewards: First place in each category will receive a prize of $100, second place will receive a prize of $50, and third place will receive a prize of $25 (payable by Paypal). In addition, on the ‘victory post’ announcing the victors, the two first place winners will each also be given the opportunity to briefly introduce/write about themselves, and also link to their website, deviantart page, or any other page they want to promote (within reason). There may or may not be other swag as well!
I look forward to seeing what the talented people of Wuxiaworld have to offer! 😀
