The rules of the Tuppence Magazine review writing competition for teenagers and students:
The rules for submitting reviews for the Tuppence Magazine writing competition for teenagers and students are simple and by submitting a review you are agreeing to them:
1. The review that you send in must be your own work – you can’t send in copy written by anyone else. No plagiarism allowed. Only send in unique content.
2. Reviews need to be more than 400 words in length, have a sharp title and relate to one of the many topics covered on the site.
3. By sending in a review, you grant us the rights to use it – we will be able to publish it anywhere on the website, blog, Twitter, Facebook, social networking and bookmarking sites or syndicate through RSS. We would also be able to change where it appears, including the category, at any time. By sending in your review, you give the rights to it to Tuppence Magazine.
4. Submitting a review does not entitle you to financial compensation of any kind – You will not necessarily receive compensation for reviews that you submit. However, we will be hosting competitions from time to time. This will be solely at the discretion of Tuppence Magazine
5. Sending in a review doesn’t guarantee that the review will be published on Tuppence Magazine – publishing reviews will be solely at the discretion of Tuppence Magazine’s editor.
6. The competition will be fully initiated when 50 or more entrants have been received.
7. The competition runs from the 1st January 2013 until the closing date at the end of the 26th December 2013. The winner of the Tuppence Magazine writing competition for teenagers and students will be announced on the 1st January 2014.
8. Proof of student status or age will need to be provided by the winner to receive their prize.
9. The competition will be decided upon a metric that takes the number of page views and multiplies it by the number of social media shares a review gets, divided by the number of days it has been live. The winner of the competition will be the entrant with the highest number. For example, if you get 100 page views and 2 Facebook shares or likes, and your review has only been live for 20 days your score will be 10. If another person gets a ReTweet, a Google + vote and a stumble on StumbleUpon, and has 60 page views over 10 days their score will be 19. The second example would be the winner in this case.
