Thanks. I was just questioning it since I hadn’t seen anything official, and people usually post official announcements. Plus, I would think we’d get a pinned thread with the rules in the forums. :slight_smile:

You’re welcome. And lol, don’t worry. I was questioning it too! It looks like that page is the only one they really updated so far, so they may just not be fully ready to officially announce it yet.

I expect we’ll hear something within the next couple of weeks official concerning the rules. I bet the grand prize with be either a publishing offer through their publishing house or Paid Stories.

I would love either one of those prize options, honestly. I hope that’s true.

I definitely think I have a shot at World Building, or whatever it was called last year. Just keeping fingers crossed the story matches the criteria.

I also think you can technically republish chapters so they match the criteria, but that feels like cheating to me.

I have never entered

Yeah, I’m not so sure on the rules there. This would be my first year entering. I want to say that sounds like something they wouldn’t necessarily mind, though.

I think they also had a rising stars category.

I only discovered Wattpad last fall, so this is the first Wattys I get to experience! I’m a noob writer, so I definitely won’t accomplish anything, but I’m really excited to see all the new stories and see the writers here get the recognition they deserve!
