The submission period has closed. We validated an amazing 121 entries, which have all been added to the contest C2. The C2 can be found in the "Communities" section of this profile, down below.
Because of the unexpectedly high number of entries, we will need to reassess how we will run the Open Voting round. We still plan to open it next week - around October 5th - but are not sure about specifics. Stay tuned!
Thanks to everyone who entered the contest (good luck!), and to everyone who's reading the entries. Don't forget to review along the way!
Jasper, Jasper, and more Jasper, in the form of high-quality Jasper-centric one-shots.
Have you always wanted to write about Jasper but never had an opportunity? Has he been patiently waiting in the wings of another story for his chance to speak up? Have you ever thought about Jasper and just wondered, “What if?”
We’ll take him any way we can get him. With Alice, Bella, Edward, Leah, Charl... wait, maybe not Charlie. He doesn’t have to be the narrator of the story, but he must be a central figure.
So, here’s your chance... Give us some good Jasper.
Rules and Guidelines
Submissions will be accepted from August 24 12:00 AM EDT to September 27 11:59 PM EDT.
Entries may be Canon, AU, AH and of any genre (e.g., angst, humor, family, suspense).
Entries must be rated T or M or the appropriate equivalent for the entry’s website (e.g. MA, PG-13, R).
Any and all pairings accepted.
Entries may be from any character’s point of view but each entry must feature Jasper centrally.
Collaborations are acceptable.
Limit of two entries per author or collaboration group.
Entries will be accepted from fanfiction.net (FFn), LiveJournal (LJ), and Twilighted (T’ed). Please note that we will not be able to add entries submitted via sites other than FFn to the FFn "For the Love of Jasper Contest" Community (C2). The Open Voting poll will include links to all entries – FFn or otherwise.
Entries must be between 2,500 and 8,500 words. The official word count will be assessed during the validation process via copy/paste of the entry (excluding header and AN) into Word 2007.
Entries may use characters from an existing fic, but the entry must be new material, written for the contest, and must be able to stand on its own as a one-shot.
One-shots may not be expanded until the contest is over. (If you do choose to expand afterward, let us know!)
Submitting an Entry
Please PM the “For the Love of Jasper” profile (FFn) or email (email@example.com) the entry link to make your official submission.
All entries must use a “For the Love of Jasper” Contest header, which is below.
Entries will be validated for quality grammar/punctuation and rules compliance when the entry is submitted. After an entry has been validated, if submitted via FFn, it will be added to the "For the Love of Jasper Contest" C2. Authors will be PMed or emailed when their entries have been validated. If an entry is disqualified, the author will be PMed and may modify and resubmit the entry by the submission deadline, if she so chooses.
We encourage any author with need for a beta to check out Project Team Beta.
After the submission deadline has passed, there will be an open/public voting round featuring all validated entries.
Open Voting will run from October 5 12:00 AM EDT to October 18 11:59 PM EDT.
In addition to Open Voting, there will be a Judges’ Selection round. The judges will assess all submitted entries, and will do so anonymously – all header information (author, title, etc) will be removed from an entry before the judges read it.
All winners will be announced October 21.
The top two places of the Open Voting round and the top two Judges’ Selection round choices will receive prizes.
