Please note this is NOT real person fic. It is Twilight fanfiction, any pairing, any genre, any rating (although preferably M rating, because let’s face it that’s what we love about fanfiction!).
Dior Rob could represent any of the male characters in the Twilight world, and the female model could represent any of the female characters in the Twilight world, we just want your take on what is happening in the pictures.
Hosts: @Sparklymeg and @Twilightladies1
Secret Keeper: @everydaybella89
Validators: @Astrosport2009 @myherion1 @AngelycDevil
3,000 to 15,000 words of any genre, any rating (though we'd prefer M), any pairing within the Twilight universe.
We will not accept entries that include offensive subject matter such as (but not limited to) incest, rape, pedophilia, or bestiality.
Entries are limited to one solo entry and one collaboration per author. Whether you're writing for the first time or a fanfiction veteran isn't important - we just want your words.
This contest is anonymous. That means no one other than betas/pre-readers should have knowledge of which entry is yours. It also means pimping should be restricted to the contest as a whole, as opposed to the promotion of single entries. VERY IMPORTANT:Make sure not to publicly hint as to which entry is yours (including but not limited to which prompt was used, story content, word count, and when the entry was submitted) as this can lead to disqualification.
Use of a beta is required. Entries should have a good standard of spelling and grammar. Entries that are riddled with spelling or grammar mistakes or that do not meet the standards of our validators will be returned to the author to be corrected before resubmission.
Entries will be received by the secret keeper, who will then make them anonymous before passing them on to the validator. Once the entry has been checked against the rules, acceptable submissions will then be posted on the profile.
You may use up to THREE picture prompts from ANY of the Dior Rob pictures. The prompts will be posted on our blog and numbered. You must state which prompt you used when you submit your entry. We will do our best to post all the pictures on the blog, but please let us know if we missed any. There are new ones coming out constantly in the run up to the ad, and we will update the blog as and when they come out.
The Dior Rob adverstisement will be released on September 1st. There has been some speculation, however, that the ad will not be released in the UK. To make it fair to UK writers (and readers) we have decided that the ad should not used as a specific prompt. You may use one picture and tell a story on your own interpretation of that picture.
The ad will tell its own story, and any entry that is found to be a copy of the story the ad tells, will not be accepted.
Entries should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following submission header:
Dior Rob Contest
Pen Name:will be removed before posting
Beta: will be removed before posting
Word count: (not including summary or submission header) will be removed before posting
1st, 2nd and 3rd place Judges' Vote

If you have any questions, please submit them to email@example.com
A message to our wonderful readers:In order to keep this contest fair, we ask that you please only pimp the contest as a whole and not single entries. All of these authors have worked very hard to offer up their words to you. Please leave them some love in the form of a review, and remember not to hint at anyone's identity if you happen to know it, as this can lead to disqualification.
