Event Details

April Pad has rolled out the December writing contest and you are invited to participate. Writers can submit new articles under the theme: World Festive Seasons. This month, writers will explore the traditions and cultures of different countries as they celebrate their major holidays.

Notably, December is one of the months that is celebrated worldwide as a holiday season.  Most countries honor the workforce with obligatory vacations many of which are related to religion or local traditions. Whatever may be the central reason, it is a time of great festivity celebrated globally.

The writing contest for December brings new features to the table. These adjustments are rather positive and will be most welcomed by contest writers.  We encourage contestants to make every effort to participate in this special edition of the contest.

We exhort new writers to follow our style sheet and writing guide. This will give you a better chance at winning one of our nine prizes for this month. You are always welcome to reach out to our editing team if you require any special assistance in creating your article.

Here is a summary of what has changed in December.

  1. Writers may submit multiple entries: This month will allow writers to submit up to three articles to the writing competition.  Articles must be of at least 350 words, must begin with who, how, or what, and should address the central theme.
  2. Higher contest prize: December will reward writers twice the prize value. Wherein the standard main prize is $500, the winner this month will receive $1,000.  Only one winner is selected each month.
  3. Writing contest weekly and bi-weekly winners: The contest will reward the standard weekly winner, a bi-weekly winner, and the writer of the year title. The prizes will go to the writer who has won the most awards during the year.

We are keen to encourage quality submissions, so suggest writers to check their stories before submitting using Prowritingaid. They have free and paid versions and are the best writing software we know to help improve grammar, readability and check for repetition, ‘sticky’ sentences and suggest alternatives.
