  • Story content must cover at least 1 of the contest topics* (see full list below)
  • Contestants can win more than one prize each month (the more stories you submit, the higher your chances of winning)
  • Must create a HackerNoon account, as winners will be contacted via email

Who Can Enter the Contest?​

​Anyone over the age of 18. There are no location restrictions.

Can I Write Under a Pen Name?

​Yes! You can use your real name on your HN profile, a fake name, or even create a persona to write under. You can also enter the contest as both an individual or as a company writing under a branded account.

How Long Will the Contest Run?​

Round 1: September 1 - September 30, 2022

Round 2: October 1 - October 31, 2022

Round 3: November 1 - November 30, 2022

Can I submit more than one entry to the contest?

Yes. Contestants can submit as many #gaming-metaverse stories as they want each month.

The more, the merrier; the more you submit, the more chances you have of winning.

How are the winners selected?

​Each month, we’ll take the top 10 story submissions that generated the most traffic.

Those 10 stories will be voted on by HackerNoon staff, and the 5 stories with the most votes win.

Can I win more than one prize?

​Yes! If you submit multiple stories, each has a chance to win.

Nominees are selected by total traffic each month and then voted on by our team. If 2 of your submitted stories that month are in the top 10, both of them are eligible to win a prize. Meaning you could potentially bag both first and second place in the contest if 2 of your stories make it to the top 10.

If I win a prize in round 1, can I still submit another entry into round 2?

Absolutely! Please feel free to enter each round of the competition.

Get writing; let’s enter the metaverse!
