In honor of everyone's favorite Hallmark holiday, I present you with the Candy Heart Awards. This is a prompt based award, so everything is based off Valentine's Day's symbol of sorts, love.
Poems and short stories based around/showing love of someone or something. And yes, you can enter both a poem and a short story since they're seperate categories.
All you have to do is write a short story or poem or both centered around the topic before the judging deadline - or have a predone short story/poem/short excerpt that fits the guidelines and prompt - follow me and your judges, and have fun. Plus try your best.
Judging starts on February 8th and winners will be announced by the 14th.
Password is favorite candy.
Next is the forms for both judging and participants. Though, you can't judge and participate in the same prompt category. Like, if you're participating in prompt 1 in the short story, you can't judge that same category, but you can judge prompt 2 of short story.
There are two seperate prompts, five participants in each. The first is romance while the other is love whether it be family love, love of a pet, etc. (Just no love that breaks any laws)
