A very cool competition indeed.
Like the added extra of a screen shot too, with a cool looking planet and Miranda class starship.
Sweet!

Read the first place prize is a slot for the closed Beta, does this mean that Beta testing is not to far off then?also when the Beta test begins will it jsut be for PC or will i hope the xbox360 be apart of it aswell?
Thanks again Cryptic for throwing in another Gem, keep them coming!

I have two versions of mine, and I'm not sure which to send in the more detailed 700 word page, or the 500 word safe entry.

marscentral already pointed out that the restriction on non-U.S. submissions applies only if the cash prize value is greater than zero dollars, which it isn't.

The other issue is the 500/700 word limit discrepancy, but I think the rules cover that one, too:
14. INTERPRETATION

14.(a). In the event of any conflict between any information provided on Sponsorís or a third partyís web site or provided by any entity other than Sponsor, on the one hand, and this Official Rules and Submission Agreement, on the other hand, this Official Rules and Submission Agreement shall govern.
Since rule #5 of the official "Planet Exploration" Contest Rules reads:
5. Entries shall be no longer than seven hundred (700) words in length.
I'd say the 700-word limit is the controlling standard.

But of course it wouldn't hurt for Awen or some other Official Person to clarify that for sure by updating either the Contest Rules or the initial post in this thread.

Logic follows the Rules of Law and this is not the last contest or slot... It is but a beginning and every travel begins with one step out the door for some or to the door for others..
The screen shot being small frame.. leaves more poetic lis to the space out of frame.

So the winners are notified be email I'd guess.
They didn't ask for any additional information like, User Name, or Forum name, ect.

Would be my guess. That's what they did with the lifetime subscription winners.

A lifetime subscription... that is just amazing. Are life time subscription contests considered to have a monetary value though?

Not that it matters much, just more of a curiosity then anything.
