FFA Talent Show!

The members of FFA possess talent by the bucket-loads; a fact that is certainly reflected in the collective awesomeness of their writing. Whilst ficfiction is something that we all have in common, (and share on a regular basis), a few of us at FFN thought it may be fun with a side of embarrassing to see what other talents our members boast.

Over the months it has emerged that we have actors, dancers, singers, artists, and a plethora of performers of all nature within our midst. However, very few of us have ever revealed these talents to the wider public. Therefore, on that note, let us introduce to you our newest and, dare I say, most exciting competition to date; The Fanficaholics Anon Talent Show!

Participation is open to members of Fanficaholics Anon ONLY, and there will be three categories to participate in. Please read below for a full list of rules and regulations regarding your entry in each category.

All participants are required to make a video of their talent (where possible), which should then be uploaded to the FFA forum and also onto your Facebook profile for judging.

The competition will be open from 13th May 2011 until 13th June 2011, giving members one full month to perfect and perform their act. No entries will be accepted after 12:00pm GMT on the closing date.

Judges will not be permitted to enter the competition, but an example video will be provided for your amusement!

Entries will then be judged by a panel of officers, and three video performances/entries will be selected.

It will then be up to the members of FFA to vote for their favourite act from the three finalists. A first, second and third place will eventually be assigned to these entries.

Your judges are Silverspoon (Officer Buffy’s Stake), General-Of Fanficanon (The Creator), Zenoneness Fanfiction (Officer Porn Pusher), Indie Tlc Cullen (Officer Dark Indie), and Kyndall Viscia (Officer Lemon-Aide).

This competition is strictly for fun and there will be no material or monetary prize offered. Remember to have a blast, and shine like the stars we know you are!
