  1. Now this is something interesting!

    Well I think the deadline is pretty short, is like 2 weeks or so to prepare, and perhaps too short for publicity period?
    I think if make it end of June or early July will be better.


  2. Did consider for a longer contest duration but finally decided a shorter one as this is our first writing contest and thus I am still a little bit clueless on how great the response from the readers.

    Most of us don't take more than a week to write an informative, helpful and thought-provoking post, do we?

    Also, there are four prizes to be given away so I believe if there are less submissions, participants will stand a higher chance to be the winners. This is good consider the objective of the writing contest is really to reward loyal readers, as simple as that. ;-)

  3. yay yay..i am going to participate... =P been wanting to buy a new domain.. =P

  4. Hmm. It seems pretty timely actually, considering the majority of the student population have either finished their exams or are having their summer holidays...

  5. erm.... how many article can we submit?
    I have written one but another topic comes up my mind =(

  6. You can submit as many posts as you want. However, each person is only eligible to win maximum one of the four prizes regardless how many submission sent ;-)

  7. Thank you so much for your replies.

    I'm in the middle of writing one now =D

    At the beginning, I have 2 topics which I could not decided which to write on so I thought I will write both. But now that I am working on one, I think I wouldn't have enough time to write 2 topics... arrgg...

    Good luck to all.

  8. OOoo...sounds interesting!
