How to Play

Create something that showcases diversity! Then…

Fill out this survey to score:

Post it using the following criteria:
- Tag it: use #diversityfest2018 and either #diversityfest_art or #diversityfest_writing

- Either post to the LiveJournal or Dreamwidth communities or DM the Tumblr community including the following information:

  • Author name/Username
    Work Title
    Link to work
    Trigger Warnings
    If it is original work or based on a fandom

Extra Posting Information:

  • If you are posting your work on AO3, you can add it to the collection.
  • If you don’t have a platform to post to, you can post it directly on the LiveJournal or Dreamwidth communities as a guest.

End Game:

The highest score for each category (fic length and art quality) will be announced as winners as well as honorable mentions who tackled an area of diversity that was relatively untouched. Then a masterlist will go up of everything turned in

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!

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.
