Welcome to the Olympic Mini Big Bang Challenge!
The Olympics may be drawing to a close in less than 24 hours, but it doesn't mean that the party has to end. What's the Olympic Mini Big Bang
challenge, you ask? To put it simply - it's a big bang challenge
for our favourite Olympic pairings on a smaller scale. It's a place where writers and artists can collaborate and create amazing fanworks featuring the hottie mchothots of the Olympics (both Summer and Winter, of course!).
I did say that this is a mini
big bang, so instead of the usual 20K word-minimum of regular big bangs, the minimum word count for this challenge is 5000 words
. There is no upper limit, so go nuts, y'all!
Of course, a big bang just isn't a big bang without awesome artists. For the purposes of this challenge, the following falls under the art umbrella: trad or digital art, manips, icons, fanvids, fan mixes and soundtracks, wallpapers, and cover art.[Important Dates]
