Sunny Stories - Naruto Boards' Official Summer Writing Contest

7lz08.png
For many of us, summers are often remembered fondly for several things--fun times at the beach, bikini beauties and chiseled hunks, hot sand, intense volleyball competitions; the list goes on and on. Summertime is always a time for making new memories and starting new adventures.

This summer, the staff would like to commemorate the same adventurous spirit of the season in a wonderful writing contest with a twist, posing a peculiar question not about what we do, but rather about the fictional characters of Naruto. What do the shinobi of the Naruto world do during their summers? Do they charge to the beach and swim? Or do they not take breaks from their hectic and perilous daily schedules?

• Write a Naruto Fanfic that incorporates elements of the Summer season.

• Fanfiction must incorporate any element of summer. For example, this could be achieved by making the story take place during the summer (must be explicit), or utilizing jutsu related to summer. Go wild and be creative!
• All fanfics submitted must be original and cannot be pre-written.
• Fanfics submitted cannot exceed the ~800-word limit and must be anonymous.
• You may only submit one entry for this contest and once submitted, you cannot revise, change, or withdraw your entry.

• Winning writers can have their writing showcase or simply the fanfic they created stickied for one month. If they do not have a showcase, they can choose to make one or forfeit their prize.
• The winner will also gain a tag that enlists the owner bragging rights and the title of being the winner of the first annual summer fanfic contest:

Cross-over fanfiction is fine, as long as the primary work of fiction you're basing your story on is Naruto.

Why can't we just pm entries, it's such a hassle going through email.

Of course. Fanfictions are pieces based on a work of fiction, so you can most definitely use characters from the actual series. In fact, I think it's very, very normal to use original characters in one's creative plot.


@Naruto - You're supposed to write a fanfiction based on the Naruto series. If you do not know what a fanfiction is, Wikipedia is a great starting point: here. You can also check out sites like fanfiction.net for examples.

@Trtt - We're sorry for the inconvenience, but it's done for practical reasons such as archiving.


Please do note that you must send your entries in by copy-pasting the text into the body of the e-mail. Do NOT attach word documents or files. Thanks.
