And They're Off

Diversity Fest 2018 is officially started!

The idea is to create something (or multiple somethings) that showcase diversity. You can look at the suggestions in the scoring categories, but feel free to include whatever you want. If you include something that’s not associated with any of the scoring categories, let me know so you can get points for it. Your works can be fan-based or original, and can be in any kind of setting.

Remember, the point of this fest is to celebrate ALL types of diversity. Message me or comment if you have any questions. Links to further information is below:

Schedule

The fest is going to open on May 20th, which is the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, and it will end on July 30th, which is the International Day of Friendship. 

You can post your works at any time during this period using the instructions in the How to Play post.

Winners and the masterlist will be posted early August.

Rules

RULE 1: ALL representation must be POSITIVE and REALISTIC!!!

For example, depression is not pretty or fun, don’t make it seem like it is. But, at the same time, the person who has depression is not broken or useless - they’re incredibly strong.
Also, don’t get so caught up in promoting one group that you invalidate another.

Rule 2: Use the posting instructions in the How to Play post. If you don’t follow these instructions, we won’t know to include your work.

Rule 3: Have fun!
