    Finxi = Fiction IIRC so that would sound bad if it's not a just fiction competition.
    I like Final Draft Awards.

    Lol good idea, thanks.
    Also me and my friend decided to change protagonist to antagonist...

    Apparently the competition is going to be based on fiction too...

    Wouldn't it depend on what the Writing Contest was about? :3?

    it a writing contest..
    you may write about whatever you like in any form as long as the idea is original, so no fanfics etc.

    So there's pretty much no limitations whatsoever? I dunno. Some of your titles seemed a bit specific. ^^ New Age for example, might even feel like a genre of some sort. The Antagonist award might hint that the story has to revolve around the antagonist instead of the protagonist. (Confusing much?) Final Draft might say that the story has undergone several editing stages. And I don't even know what Finxi is... ^^

    Finxi is the latin word for Fiction.

    Is this a fiction-based writing contest then? Or is non-fiction allowed as well? As I've said, most of your award names sound a bit specific. >_> Sorry.

    Well it is supposed to be fictional though the entries can be based on real life experiences, we just don't want to be dragged down into reading a load of factual crap.

    Ok. I guess I'll choose the less confusing of the lot.

    To anyone that cares, we decided on Finxi unless we get any better suggestions.
