Summer/Winter Holidays Round NINE - sign-ups open now!

Hello, everyone! It's that time of year again - Summer/Winter Holidays are about to start, for the ninth time now! It's one of my favourite times of the year - it's been a fantastic fest every single time, with so many wonderful submissions. So let's do it again - and for a small change, let's do it on LJ and DW this year! (Yes, this means we're crossposting everything.)

As usual, here's the deal:

Summer/Winter Holidays Round 9

Every year, during the entire month of July we're throwing a Doctor/Jack party here at [community profile] wintercompanion (and [ profile] wintercompanion). During that month, we post new fic and art created to a prompt list kept secret until the month starts. On 1 July, we start posting the created works, and all of the prompts are open for anyone in the comm. Each year, it's been a great opportunity to showcase the really fantastic stuff you all create.

So here's what we're looking for:
  • up to 15 writers willing and excited to write at least 500 words of Doctor/Jack based on specific prompts, to be finished and submitted by 25 June

  • up to 15 artists interested in producing a Doctor/Jack-centric work (wallpapers, icons, banners, drawings, vids, etc.) based on specific prompts, to be finished and submitted by 25 June
(As usual, prompts can be interpreted as strictly or loosely as you like.)

Interested? In the comments, leave us a note telling us:
your name,

your email address, and

whether you're interested in creating fic or art!

We'll email you our secret list of prompts, and you'll pick your top three choices. Once we have everyone's choices, we'll assign everyone a prompt - we'll do our best to match you with your first choice, but we can't promise.

Sign-ups will be open until 28 May - they'll close when it's no longer the 28th anywhere in the world, and assignments will go out no later than 31 May.

Of course we always have a need for pinch hitters for art and fic - life has a way of happening. Let us know if you're willing to join the ranks of those lifesavers! And if you're willing to beta, please check out our beta volunteer post (LJ | DW) to leave your information.

It doesn't matter if you're new to the comm or if you've been here since the beginning. Anyone and everyone is welcome! Feel free to spread the word - the more the merrier. :D

I'd do some art (a drawing probably).

GAH! I am so sorry. I kept thinking that you'd written there would be a reminder mail with the deadline and then it never came. Oops.

I am working on it and should have it finished by tomorrow! If it's still possible to participate of course.

Apologies again.

I've been somewhat loose with the prompt but I hope it'll fit the bill.
