Q: Can I submit more than one entry to the contest?

A: 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.

Q: How are the winners selected?

A: 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.

Q: Can I win more than one prize?

A: Yes! If you submit multiple stories, each has the 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 most-trafficked that month, 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.

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

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

Good luck! We look forward to reading your submissions.
