Award Rules

I have written the below rules for entry/registration for the Forum Awards. I would encourage all members to go through the rules and advise of any changes/additions/deletions to the rules. I will also write separate rules/procedures to follow for each of the award categories and post it separately.

Rules for Entry into the Forum Awards:
1. The blog must be live at the time of entry.
2. The Awards are open to anyone that writes a blog – whether they are members of the Alumni Forum or not.
3. Each blogger may enter into two categories. Entries can be made during the registration process after which the blogs entered will be open for a poll on the B101 Alumni Forum. During the registration process any member of the forum can suggest a blogger for an award category. Bloggers cannot nominate themselves.
4. The B101 Alumni Admins will nominate the Top 5 suggested blogs for each category for voting in the polls. Only the Winner of the Award will be announced, the poll results will not be public.
5. Each Award will have its own set of procedures to follow. Should the winner choose to accept the award, he/she is expected to follow through the procedure like answering a set of questions or nominating other bloggers for the next award cycle.
6. A blogger who has once been chosen a winner for a particular category of award, shall not be eligible to be nominated for that particular category again for a period of one month. There are no restrictions for again nominating the bloggers who were previously nominated but did not win in the same category.
7. There are 4 Award categories. Registration (nomination) will be open for a week after which it will be open for poll on the forum. Each week one category of awards will be conducted.
8. The B101 Alumni Forum Admins are not eligible to be nominated for any category of awards.
9. The Alumni Admins reserve the right to disqualify entries that contain offensive material.
10. All blog entries submitted must be legal and with the permission of the blog owner (especially if you are nominating a blogger who is not a B101 Alumni Member)

Once a captive, now I’m free!

Once a captive, now I’m free. 

Snow, doubts, smile, heart, horse, fun! 

Hold on; for one more day. 

No time to waste in formalities 

Sun and wind, burn and free! 

Be grateful, be thankful, be contented. 

I woke up to live life! 

Try to understand and love everyone. 

Words dancing at the dozen: halved 

Every night she dreams of travelling 

Lost love, too late for discovery. 

I wait for Wade to wave 

Hope they enjoy the perfect life 

He sulked alone until they conceded. 

These feelings I keep to myself 

Togetherness leads to actual mutual bonding 

I wish I could stop worrying 

Will it be longer or shorter? 

They knew there was no option 

Let us slay all negative notions

Loud as a fair dare darling!

No silence for my busy brain

And then, she was set free! 

Notes:

  • This is a group event. 23 entries were included this week.
  •  Entries are sent to my email as it’s an anonymous event. 
  • Thanks for participating.

It’s A Wonderful Life After All!

It’s  a wonderful life after all! 

Prayer changes my point of view;

Golden, rare, opportunity, where are you? 

Twigs crushed, table twisted, life begins,

It is sad that summer is over,

 

Images sprung out of my hands endlessly,

How can I keep this secret!

Breath of life, stench of death;

This is how it is, pal!

 

Empty suitcase, where do I begin?

Losing someone I never really had,

Love, sky, movies, mother, barbecue, wallflower;

Leaves fall, colors change, life evolves,

Poetry Corner Invites!

Hello Friends 🙂
#weekly #poetrycorner
Now this does sound like an advertisement and advertisement it is.

Why am I doing this everyday?

Because I feel it has the potential to become the best poem in the blogosphere. We can work to make it the best event in our neighborhood.

For those who are not familiar with it. :
It’s a group poem with anonymous contributions.

To get a taste: Please look at this week’s poem. We publish it here in Alumni. I am sharing with you the one I published in my blog with picture. You can also publish this group poem if you wish.

A Broken Bridge!

Why so?

Because so many minds working together, without any particular theme, create so many sparks that a bright burning flame of creativity lightens up our forum.

 

I already have 15 entries. Rich gets richer. So I cordially invite you to give your entry. All you have to do is:

Please send your 6 words to thinkerv0@gmail.com 

Please keep the subject line “poetry corner.” Even if you don’t it’s perfectly alright. 🙂

 

We are going to publish the poem on Tuesday so it’s a lot of fun and excitement as it gets bigger day by day. Please participate. 🙂
