Story Contest: April Fools' Day


Write your own April Fools' Day story version of our VANAS family of characters.

Contest CLOSED



Write your own April Fools' Day version of our VANAS family of characters

Your story will need to have the 3 act structure as follows:

  1. First act: "Establishment"
  2. Second act: "Rising action"
  3. Third act: "Resolution"

The writer will have to invent the characters' personalities and relationships, and show that through the action.


How to enter the contest

Write and submit an outline for an animated cartoon featuring the VANAS family of characters (pictured below). You will need to imagine their personalities and relationships; then convey those through action and sample dialogue. Use a three-act structure–establishment, rising action, resolution–as if this will eventually be a half-hour TV script with two commercial breaks. Three pages (one per act), 12 point type, double spaced.
