WINNERS!!! Plain Mike's Writing Challenge Week 1 Winners Announced & A New ART Contest!!
We had 16 amazing entries in the Plain Mike Week 1 writing challenge. You all really made it tough to pick winners!
First a bit of housekeeping.
Our judge panel was to be myself, Hopehuggs, and Arbitrarykitten. Unfortunately, Aribitrarykitten had some real life things to deal with this week which precluded her from participating. So Hopehuggs offered her opinions, and I weighed in on them myself as well. In the end, we liked the same top posts in different order. So We have Co-winners!
Here's how the payouts are working considering how things played out. As a reminder, I posted the contest with a $10, $5 and $3 first through third place and $2 reserved for runners up. The new payouts look like this:
Third Place - $3
2 Runners up - $1 each
Two of our entries got curied. As much as I liked these entries, the curie upvotes far outweighed any prize money I could offer, so I eliminated them from consideration. I do want to acknowledge these participants. I hope they will agree with me that it is best to spread the wealth. Our two curied entries were:
Current Payout tally - $90.72
Current Payout tally - $107.91
Thank you both for your participation! Congrats of the Curie votes! Don't spend it all in one place!!!
And now to our winners!!! Remember, Our writing prompt this week was:
Original art by @svdsdragunov. Please make sure you visit his blog for his amazing artwork!

@rensoul17 with "Periphery 2.0"

Now. We've already got our second prompt out there for you all to write about. See the week two challenge prompt here:
Week 3 is fast approaching, and I don't have an artist lined up for it! So I'm offering $5 SBD for the artist who contributes our next piece of art for people to write about. If you are an artist and would like to be featured, please submit a link to your art in the comments. If you are not an artist, but know someone who might like to participate, link their work here, if it is chosen and they agree to allow their art to be used, I will offer you a $3 SBD finder's fee in addition to the $5 for the artist!
So get out there and find me some art!!! And get those entries in for the Backstory of Randowhale!!
