Welcome to the first unofficial flash challenge!

  The theme is Food. You must write an article on the template of your choice that primarily features a food and/or cuisine in your world, and submit it as a comment below.   This challenge is judged by me, Annie, Moonflower and Drackni Waterwisper A.K.A. DragonMagpie. To keep things fair, co-judges are not eligible to win prizes.   Submissions are now CLOSED.

  After all the pieces have been judged, an announcement will be made declaring the winners. Depending on how many people participate, I may also include some runner-ups.   Everyone who participates will win a digital download of the Food Flash Challenge exclusive bookmark, courtesy of Moonflower!    
  • Third Place will win a MS Paint illustration of questionable quality depicting their food, and a unique third place bookmark by Moonflower!
  • Second Place will also win a MS Paint illustration of questionable quality depicting their food, and a unique second place bookmark by Moonflower!
  • First Place will win a MS Paint illustration of questionable quality depicting their food, and another MS Paint Illustration of something else they choose in their world, and a unique first place bookmark by Moonflower! They also win an audio recording of their article by Drackni!
 

Criteria

  All valid entries will be judged based on the following criteria;  
  • Creativity - Is it a inventive concept, or a particularly creative interpretation? Does the food tell us something interesting about the world, and the species who eats it?
  • Versimilitude - Is the food believable? Does it make sense that the species would eat the food?
  • Presentation - Is the article well structured? Is it easy to read? Is the food the focus of the article? Is context and related concepts presented clearly and succintly?
  Things that will not count against you include but are not limited to minor typos and CSS theme (unless it makes your article unreadable).
