[Immagine: BM_copertinacontest-800.jpg]

Hello! Thanks to Tiz, patron and author of the project, we are happy to host the first international contest on Blood Memories. You are asked to send us an essay between 4000 and 6000 words (NO FAN FICTION) or a fan art based on Robin Hobb's books, and specifically on one of these topics:

  • Skill/Wit/Charms
  • Childhood: Fitz and Beloved
  • Rulers and Lands
  • White Prophets and Catalysts
  • Masks and Puppets
  • Liveships and Traders

The best essay or fan art will be rewarded with a €80 Amazon Gift Card.

Here are the rules. You can submit your work at info[at]bloodmemories[dot]it within November 8th, 2013. Your email must have the header "BM CONTEST" and contain the indication of the outline you chose to develop. All entered works must be original and should not have been submitted elsewhere; multiple entries from the same person or email address will be disqualified. The winner will be selected by a panel of three judges (Tiz, The Fool and Tintaglia), who will grade every paper or art between 1 and 10 and account for their decision. Essays and arts will be published on (of course, we will give the right credits to each competitor).

Please, feel free to contact us for any doubts or questions.

Good luck to all the participants!

Hello! Ciao We have extended the deadline by a further week, to Nov 8. There are 15 days left to submit your works, you have still time!

RE: BM International Contest - The Fool - 09-11-2013

Well, time is up! Smile Thanks to all the participants, we have received wonderful entries!
Next week we will show you all of them and announce the winner of the contest. Inchin

Thanks for your talent. And stay tuned!

Dear competitors, thanks for your talent and for your patience, too!

We had to delay the publication of your fanart because, with this contest, we took the occasion to create an entire new section of the website, where we will collect artworks, essays, book covers, maps and videos.

So, here's our gallery:

We have received eight artworks and one essay (in Italian, so many of you won't be able to read it). As you can see on the top of the page, there's a white icon for the “Fan Art ”category: well, it will be replaced with a thumbnail of the artwork with the highest score. :-)

We will announce the winner tomorrow, so... stay tuned!

In the meantime, every work will be recommended on Twitter and published on Tumblr and here, on the message board. We would like to create a Facebook Album, too; please, if you disagree and don't want to see your fanart on facebook for some reason, let us know in 12 hours.

Thanks again from all of us! Inchin
