About the Teitho Contest
The Teitho Contest is an initiative of Aragornwriter, currently moderated by Mirach.
The writing part of the contest runs through this website and invites writers who like Aragorn and/or Legolas stories to join in. You don't have to be a member of any particular
mailing list or group, but do bear in mind our criteria below. The artistic part is hosted in the Arda-Inspired group at deviantart.
This is a contest for gen-fanfiction featuring either Aragorn and/or
Legolas, and Tolkien fanart with any characters. For more information on what is/is not allowed, please visit
Teitho stands for "Write!",
which is exactly what we want you to do! (Or draw, as well.)
Are you a LOTR-fanfiction
writer, interested in friendship stories about Legolas and/or Aragorn, the
twins, Elrond, Glorfindel, Thranduil, ...? Do you like to write angst,
horror, comedy, ..?
Or, are you a reader on the
lookout for exciting new fics or artist looking for new inspiration?
Then look no further. Welcome
to the Teitho Contest, where you can participate amongst many other writers
and artists and send in stories and pictures based on our themes.
Join us in this writing and drawing contest!
Each challenge will take six weeks: Four weeks of writing, two weeks of voting.
On the first day of the challenge, we announce a new theme on this site. You then have one month to write your story. The story has to be finished when you send it in.
The approximate timeline of a Teitho month:
New challege is posted on the 25th, deadline is 25th of the next month, or the end of the next month if someone asks for extension. The stories are posted on the next day, and a 2-week voting period starts. The winners are announced a day after the end of the voting.
(Keep in mind that the mods are people as well, and the dates can be a few days late if they are busy.)
Send in your story only to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Do NOT send in your story to any other list or emailaddress or it will not be eligible!
This contest is unique!
All the stories will be posted anonymously so you will not know what author you are voting for. Send in your stories only to this email address email@example.com.
Include in your email your top 3 of favorite stories and pictures, ordered from 1st to 3rd place. The voting is individual for both cathegories, and you can vote for just one or both of them, if you want.
We will announce the winners on this site and the mailing lists.
Good luck to all!
