BEST CAPTION Writing Challenge/Contest--Week 1

UPDATE 10/6/15 7:30 a.m. PDT: The rules have changed just a little bit, as this new challenge evolves--please see below for details.

* * * * * * * * * *

I thought it might be fun if we have a NEW writing challenge! So, read below and have some fun with it!

BEST CAPTION WRITING CHALLENGE/CONTEST

Here is how it will work:

  • Once a week, I will pick a photograph and ask for comments to caption it. I will run it until mid-week, and will choose the top three finalists on Wednesday night about 7:30 p.m. Pacific time.
  • The TOP 3 Finalists will be announced in a poll for the Persona Paper community to vote for the caption they think is the BEST CAPTION for the week. Polling will be open for votes counted for 48 hours only.
  • The week's winner will be announced in a post soon after, and the winner will agree to write a short story (500-character minimum) to publish NLT the following Monday, using the winning caption as the focus of the story (photo not required).
  • Only one caption per person. If you think of something different you want to use, then change your comment using the edit button on your comment.
  • There is NO trophy, purse, or any other special remuneration implied with winning, other than having some fun!
  • This challenge is strictly the creation of the author, and is in no way intended to represent the site, or its owners, moderators, managers and administrators.

I would love to see this take off and become a weekly challenge. Let your friends and fellow writers know. If they are not on Persona Paper, then have them sign up so we can all have fun together!

So, look at this adorable picture! What do you think is a good caption? Good luck!

If you are not yet a member of Persona Paper and would like to join in the fun, please visit this link to sign up , write a short post of Introduction, and when approved come back and leave you caption comment! We look forward to having you join us!

This is a great idea. Here's my caption:

'The dentist did a wonderful job on my teeth!'

Paulie wrote on October 6, 2015, 2:08 AM

My caption would be, "Who says that writing on Persona Paper isn't a lot of fun?" Once again you have come up with a very creative idea.

CoralLevang wrote on October 6, 2015, 2:50 AM

msiduri wolfgirl569 Feisty56 allen0187 Paulie Thank you for your submissions!

Obviously, I'm not CoralLevang but this is by far the best quote in my book!

All of these suck. We are not a bunch of truly funny people. LOL!

Gossamer cheri
Thank you for your contributions!!

CoralLevang wrote on October 7, 2015, 11:20 AM

Loudman Sometimes it takes people a while to warm up. Remember there is time to edit, and get others involved.

I'm still awaiting MegL 's ideas and hoping more people stop in. I was also hoping that inertia4 would show up. Or celticeagle .
I still have hope that others will show up, as well. There are 11 hours until I will choose the top 3.

CoralLevang wrote on October 7, 2015, 11:32 AM

And where is YOUR caption, allen0187 ? emoticon :winking:

Feisty56 wrote on October 7, 2015, 12:42 PM

These are just from the top of my head, no slights intended to anyone and if you've already participated here and I included you, I apologize.

Getting these many views on a post is itself quite an achievement. CoralLevang . I missed this week's contest but it is brilliant idea. Contests are a great way to create activity.

AliCanary wrote on October 8, 2015, 7:27 AM

Sorry, came across this a bit too late. Maybe next time. Thanks for thinking of me Feisty56 !

CoralLevang wrote on October 10, 2015, 12:22 AM

I shall post a new one on Monday. I may extend the time to submit through Friday. I have to look at my schedule while on the road to see, if feasible. Thanks AliCanary ! I think you will like the next one. I have already chosen the photo!
