The Previous Contest
The previous Fractal Writing Contest, #5, is over. There were 17 contestants (or 18, one is ambiguous!), an all-new record for the contest! We had pictures, poems, haikus and a couple of short stories -- with most entries themed after morbid journeys and falling from grace into damnation! My personal favorite is @tibra's entry, "Incremental," a short story of conditioned beings damned in an existence with only one fixed purpose.
WINNER: @tibra, for "Incremental".
The contest post expired with a reward of ~4.5 SBD, so @tibra gets half of that, 2.3 SBD. The rest 2.2 SBDs, I'd like to offer as a prize to two runner-ups (for 1.1 SBD each):
2nd PLACE: @breshepard, for this popular poem.
3rd PLACE: @diebitch, for alliterating!.
Finally, an honorable mention goes, yet another time, to a regular contestant, @ronism, for a great picture (and callous music!). Congratulations to all participants and a big thank you to all upvoters. I was very happy and excited to see such a big participation, I wish there were more rewards available. As usual, if there are enough SBDs made by the new contest post, I will try to reward a 2nd- and 3rd- place winner, as well.
This week, the SIXTH installment of the Fractal Writing Contest will run.
The New Contest
Each post in this contest series will contain a fractal, a 2-dimensional representation of a complex mathematical formula. The participants have to post a comment with something inspired by the fractal, be it just a title, a haiku, a story, whatever.
- You have to reply with a comment in the contest post.
- The reply must be inspired by the fractal, but no explanation needed.
- Any kind of content is acceptable: just a title, a haiku, a poem, a short story, a painting, a photo, a video, a doodle, whatever. The content must be yours, no links to other people's work accepted.
- I will pick the best reply, when the post expires (1 week after posting it).
- The winner gets half the SBD made in the post, minimum 1 SBD. The rest are split to the other winners: if there are enough SBDs made by the contest post, I will try to reward a 2nd- and 3rd- place winner, as well.
- Upvotes and resteems are welcomed, but not necessary to participate.
- I try to upvote all relevant entries.
