In 2015, you entered more than 75,000 stories into the Wattys, Wattpad's annual writing contest. This year, we're making the world's largest online writing contest even bigger. How, you ask?
By accepting submissions in over 22 languages, by having sponsored awards in the Philippines, and by introducing two new awards!
For the first time ever, we are accepting submissions in diverse international languages to celebrate with the global community. In addition, Jollibee will sponsor three new awards in the Philippines. For more information on the international Wattys2016, look for your community in the story description of our official Wattys profile.
This year, we are also introducing two new awards for entries: Visual Storytelling and Trailblazers. The Visual Storytelling award recognizes the stunning stories told using our embedded multimedia feature. It celebrates the graphic novels, magazines, recipe and look books that are now available on Wattpad. The second award, Trailblazers, recognizes your genre-bending skills. Winners of this award are inventive, innovative, and push limits as modern storytellers to show the diversity of storytelling on Wattpad.
So what are you waiting for? Participate in this year's Wattys for a chance to have your story recognized by our global community. Be sure to tag your story #Wattys2016 to enter.
