I notice that the art contest bring in a lot of people to check out art and such causing some general feedback.

So...why not do it with fan fic? Anyone interested and if so got any ideas?

I've got one, A License contest where writers have to make a story based off an ill or even never before used license(like a toy line or something crazy, but not too crazy)

Eh?

Anyone got any ideas for contests of their own?

Or what to start with on the one I suggested?

@Decoy Elite: For a contest, you need a prize. Picking the right prize is kinda tricky.

It'd be like the art contests. The prize is setting up the parameters of the next contest.

@Decoy Elite: Idea! I'm currently obsessed with Cap's return to present day since I'm writing it in M:G so....the challenge could be to pick a WW2 era character and integrate him into the modern world of superheroes for DC/Marvel/Other.

Lol, I'd like to think you fan fic guys will be as cool with it as the art guys are. ;)

Besides this is more for fun than actually winning. Kind of like the Fan Fic challenges some people have done.

Could we make it a little broader like integrate a non-Marvel or DC character into their universes?

There's only so many WW2 characters.

@Decoy Elite: But then the fun would be reading different versions of the same character.

Well yeah, each contest the last winner would pick the character to be integrated.

Mean?? How? 
 
@Decoy Elite:  
I know the point of this is probably not to try and copy the art contest but one that that I think can translate perfectly would be the Character Creation Contest. Because often time people (myself included) like to come up with backgrounds for their would be characters. Also I think a Battle Contest could work pretty good.

@Project_Worm: I do think that a lot of the art contest would transition well. Honestly I can't think of one that wouldn't.

@Decoy Elite: Well... I wouldn't exactly say that. Like costume contest, crank those panels, public domain character redesign. Probably wouldn't be the best choice.

@Project_Worm: True. I think Public Domain redesign could work, it'd just be redesigning the entire character.

Also it turns out Character Creation Contest has been done on here and I'm seeing the person who started it(Icarusflies) about bringing it back.

Hmm. I did not know that. I did however now that SHA did a contest where people were supposed to turn celebrities into super heroes. It got a decent amount of attention but only like four entries...  
 
p.s. That's actually how I got into Fan-Fics. :p

But I think and Amalgam would be sweet!

How about Cross-Over Contests and Re-Imagined Character Contests?
