UFS is filled with a lot of creative talent, and now it's time to put the spotlight on those who have the gift of writing through our very own fanfiction contest!

There are four possible categories for judging:

1) Short Star Trek fanfiction
2) Short crossover fanfiction
3) Long Star Trek fanfiction
4) Long crossover fanfiction

To make things fun and fair for everyone, here are a few guidelines:

STORY BASICS
1) Only your own works, or collaboration with others, that have not been previously published will be accepted (Sorry - no Fanfiction.net prior to the contest!)
2) Star Trek stories can be set in any series' era
3) Crossover fanfiction will be accepted ONLY if:
--- a) It is a direct crossover between Star Trek and another show
--- b) It is a crossover between two different series that has Star Trek connections (main or regularly recurring cast that appeared in any Star Trek series)

LENGTH
1) Short fanfics are defined as works that are 2500 words or less
2) Long fanfics are defined as works that are 2501 words or more

SUBMISSIONS
1) All fanfics should be typed into a Google Doc or a similar online document system (i.e. ThinkFree, etc), and published
2) URLs for published fanfics should be submitted to zania.turner@ufstarfleet.org
3) Trek connections for crossover fanfics should be specified within the e-mail that provides the link to the published document
4) Fanfics submitted in the wrong category (i.e. length or type) will be automatically adjusted by the office of UF Starfleet Communications into the proper category

WINNERS
1) All fanfics that are submitted as a part of this contest will be voted on by a panel of readers

3) All fanfics submitted as a part of this contest will appear within future issues of the Delta Communicator
4) Long fanfics may be broken up and appear over several issues of the Delta Communicator
5) 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place fanfics will be prominently featured within the Delta Communicator, and include interviews with the authors
6) A certificate will be issued to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners for each category
