Perhaps you have noticed the small contest link in the top right navigation bar on HubPages. You know what that means – another contest is on the way!
Coming up this April is the So You Think You Can Write Online contest – the theme of which is excellent online writing. You can submit entries on any topic you choose – all you have to do is add a “WritingContest” tag before you publish.
Our contest judges, experts on the HubTool, writing, useful online guides, and viral online articles, will be looking for interesting topics, search-friendly titles, ship-shape grammar, unique, useful information, and tasteful use of varying HubTool capsules.
There is a limit of five entries per day, but each entry will have a chance to win $50 in a random daily drawing, $50 for being the Staff Pick of the day, $100 for being a People’s Choice of the week (based on popular vote), $100 for winning the Best Hub prize for a week (based on contest judge ranking), and $250 for being a Grand Prize winner.
You can first start submitting entries for the contest on March 31st at 12:00pm (PT) and can continue submitting entries until 12:00pm on April 28th.
Before the contest starts, we’ll be interviewing some of the contest judges, so check back here to get helpful pointers on writing winning entries.
I hope you decide to enter in the contest – it will be great fun, plus it is an excellent way to hone and prove your online writing skills!
