Props go out to violet_Music for suggesting the idea for this writing contest. We’re always happy to hear suggestions, so don’t be afraid to shout your own ideas out to us!
We’ve run a few character creation/description challenges in the past, but this one has an added hook: You must describe an iconic person in 300 words without mentioning their actual name or blatant hints about their identity.
What qualifies as an iconic character? Glad you asked. We’ll accept any person—living or dead, fictional or real—that is recognizable by a substantial group of people. For example: politicians, celebrities, literary characters, superheroes, movie characters, and gods are all fair game.
If you want to go a bit more niche, that’s your call and you won’t be penalized for doing so. However, the best entries will make it possible to determine who the icon is without someone having to perform hours of head scratching and internet research.
The deadline for this contest is Sunday June 24th at 10pm EST. More restrictions noted in the contest description.
WEbook will pick six submissions as winners and award them free entry to PageToFame, our flagship writing contest.
The #1 winner will receive a copy of The Catcher in the Rye - an iconic book if we've ever heard of one.
To enter, start a new chapter in the official Nameless Icon Contest project.
