The votes were cast and the results are in - the joint three winners for this month's Challenge suggestions were: Picture Challenge, Urban Poverty and Teen Fantasy. So, in the interests of being fair, we've decided to combine all three together and give you an Urban Picture Challenge...

What you write about is up to you, so lace up your trainers (or sneakers, if you'd prefer) and guide your story through the hard, concrete streets of your imagination...

As ever, what we'll be looking for when we judge is a great narrative and convincing characterisation, but we don't want to be too prescriptive with this challenge as we want to see some diversity and imagination in your submissions.

You've got 750 words to scare the dirty, city pigeons away with, but you'll need to make every single one of those count to impress the hoodies (aka your judges)

Good luck and happy writing!

The prize this month is a hardback copy of a WEbook of your choice!

The (somewhat) Fine Print:

WEbook will shortlist 6 entries. From which, WEbook will pick one that is the most deserving of this month's prize.
We'll also highlight each story on the blog and see if anyone tries to buy it. If they do, we'll tell them it's a real deal and that they'll have to pay for it!

Note #1: WEbook may not take into account the user ratings when deciding who will win the challenge. We read each submission carefully, and decide the winners based on our own judgment. But this month, we’ll be looking at the user ratings extra carefully!

Note #2: There is sometimes a word count discrepancy between MS Word and WEbook's word count editor, causing authors' entries to appear to go a few words over the limit. Don't worry about this! We are aware of the issue and a few extra words will not affect our consideration of your writing.

Note #3: Only one submission per person, please (you can, however, revise up until the deadline - in fact, you should!).

Note#4: These terms and conditions together with any specific rules set out in prize draw notices (as defined below) are the rules and apply to this WEbook Challenge.

Note#5: The Challenge is open to all registered users of WEbook, and runs from 1st September 2014 until 10 pm EST on October 1st, 2014.

Note#6: In the event of any dispute regarding the rules, conduct, results and all other matters relating to a competition, the decision of WEbook shall be final.

Note#7: By entering the Challenge, you hereby warrant that all information submitted by you is true, current, original and complete. WEbook reserves the right to verify the eligibility of all submissions.
