Fan Fiction Competition
Through the summer holidays Napier Libraries are running a fan fiction competition for library members aged 11 to 18. Choose your favourite book, movie, comic, web series, or television show, and write a new adventure for the characters. Your story must contain at least one copyrighted character and one original character.
The competition runs from Monday the 11th of December 2017 through to Friday the 19th of January 2018. All entries must be submitted to NapierLibrariesFanFiction@outlook.com.
Two entries will be selected by our judges as the winners, and each will receive an Acer Aspire One 10 tablet.
The winners will be announced via this webpage page of the Napier libraries website at 4:30pm on Friday the 26th of January 2018.
- Participants must be library members aged 11 to 18 years on Monday the 4th of December 2017.
- The competition opens on Monday the 11th of December 2017, though of course you may begin writing before this. You have until 5:00pm on Friday the 19th of January 2018 to submit your entry.
- Your fanfiction must be between 2000 and 4000 words.

- The source material can be from books, films, comics, web series, or television in any genre.
- There must be at least one copyrighted character and one original character in the plot.
- Judges will be looking for interesting and affecting fiction rather than good spelling and grammar; however a clear, easily comprehended narrative is more likely to communicate your ideas successfully, so edit and spell-check!
- Only one entry per contestant.
- Use only your own work. You will be disqualified if you are found plagiarizing someone else’s fan fiction.
- Any violence you depict should be no more than PG13. And romance must be restricted to kissing and long, lingering looks.
