Starcraft II Beta Key contests

General Simon “Go0g3n”
In case you didn't notice it's June 2009 so Strarcraft II beta is right around the corner. At this very moment, several interactive contests are taking place and all with a grand prize: A SCII Beta Key.

Campaign Creations Contest


Contest Begins: Jun 6th, 2009
Contest Weekly Updates Start: June 15th, 2009
Contest Ends: July 31st, 2009

You can read the full and complete information about this contest if you follow the link at the bottom of this page. But we've made it easier for you and here's a summary:

The goal is to to present a story as to what occurred within the four years between the Brood War and StarCraft 2 storyline. It may be portrayed through one, two, or all three of the races, and may involve any period between the four years. Of course, writers can use the "One year later" time travel tricks and pretty much everything else.

Style can be crafted in any sequence, such as episodes, intertwining, etc. and may revolve around main characters or spin-off fan-created characters. Judgment will be based on ability to portray story via in-game text and triggers, mapping ability, and overall professionalism of the project. Additional extras such as music, vocal work, or artwork adjustment will not directly ultimately affect judgment but may aid in help of a tie, as well as how early you announced your project and how many updates you perform in your thread. The contest will be based off a scoring system, where one can acquire up to ten points based on each criteria: Text (Spelling, Grammar, Formatting, Dialogue, etc), Triggers (Complexity, Functional, Usage), Mapping (Categories: Layout and Beauty), and Professionalism (Attention to detail, lore, updates, and presentation).

The top three contestants will recieve two beta keys each and some other pretty much irrelevant stuff.
