Writers' Challenge

Last Winner: RPC-293
Previous Prompt: Use a randomly given image during the random hazards contest.

Every few months, a new challenge prompt is posted. This prompt could be a theme or a writing restriction. At the conclusion of the challenge, the highest rated submission will win a featured spot on the front page and a new prompt will be posted. Winners do not receive the contest-winner badge. They instead receive the challenge-winner badge.

To enter, post an article that works under the current prompt and send a Wikidot PM to VizloxVizlox with your article link.

Only entries that reach at least 8 votes before the challenge ends are considered for winner. It is recommended not to post your article near the end of a challenge so that it has time to accrue votes.


  • Anyone is allowed to participate
  • Do not coldpost. You must receive feedback in the drafts forum
  • Submissions must match the theme in a justifiable way
  • Pre-existing drafts are allowed, so long as they have never been posted to the wiki
  • Edits to works after submitting are allowed
  • Malicious or manipulative voting is strictly prohibited


Q: Am I restricted to only one entry per challenge?
A: No, you may enter multiple times if you wish.

Q: Can I vote on my own entry?
A: Yes, but it wouldn't matter. Author votes are discounted when deciding the winner.

Q: Can I enter an article into both the challenge and another contest or event?
A: Yes, but not articles in the contest category (their URL begins with "contest:"). They use the Upvote/Downvote rating system which is not compatible.

Q: Do I have to submit an RPC?
A: You may submit any kind of article (tales, acquired media, etc.), as long as it is able to follow the prompt.
