Minimalism Contest



The Minimalism Contest: Words, words, words. There're too many of them. Too much time is wasted slogging through 10k plotlines, convoluted crosslinks, and every slasher cliche in between. Flash fiction is meant to be efficient — impactful. You get in; you get out. Bing, bang, boom! So, for the end of the year, let's keep it simple.

Post a short article in two months: No theme, no format, and no strings attached. Lay off the custom code & the deep-lore documents. 1st Place goes to the highest-rated article. Most Minimalist Article goes to the highest-scored article (see "Points System" Tab). 1500 words are the goal, but there's a 3k word limit. The shorter the better. What's not to like?

SUBMISSIONS ARE BEING STREAMLINED: To enter, upload your contest entry as if it were a normal article and tag it using "MinCon2023"

Rules & Article Requirements:

  • Articles do not have to be about minimalism, the contest is about quickly executing expressive ideas about any subject.
  • Your article must receive two pieces of crit posted in the drafts forum. DO NOT COLD POST.
  • Your article cannot exceed a 3k word count or use a custom theme.1
  • Multiple contest submissions and editing of already submitted contest entries are allowed. Furthermore, submitting reworked articles or pre-existing drafts that have gone unpublished before the announcement of the contest is also allowed.
  • Do not excessively advertise, vote-hound, or request a vote change for your submissions.
  • Using alt accounts or other deceitful means of vote manipulation will result in a life ban and disqualification from future contests.
  • To qualify for Most Minimalist Article, article submissions must have at least four users vote on it and require a minimum rating of 3.2/5 stars or beyond2

Word count will be determined based solely on text printed directly on the website page itself, meaning that CSS and other invisible do-dads that show up in the Page-Source, or raw text, DO NOT COUNT toward the total.3
