For those who might have missed it: the Wattys are live! Each day we are receiving lots of awesome stories that will go head-to-head competing for Wattys fame! If you haven't yet entered, now's your chance. Submissions are being accepted until November 6th.
We have some great new categories, including PopFic, which caters to celebrities both on and off the internet (think Janoskians). Plus, our separate prizes for Popular Works and On The Rise mean that both new and seasoned Wattpadders will have an opportunity to be showcased. Getting involved with the Wattys creates exposure for your stories and gives you a chance to interact with a larger community. Remember that any visitor to Wattpad can search for Wattys entries using the following tags: wattyoriginal13, wattypopfic13, and wattyfanfic13.
The combined read count for all of last year’s entries was well over 50 million, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to get your story out there.
Coming up: During the months of November and December, get ready to read, read, read. Be on the lookout for the Wattys tags on stories from your favorite authors. Remember, the winners are chosen by the Wattpad community. This means everyone needs to shout-out, tweet-out (#OMGWattys), and rally behind the stories you want to win.
For full contest rules, terms, and conditions please visit www.wattpad.com/wattys. If you would like to view past winners and brush up on what it takes to be a Wattys champion, the stories can be found in the reading lists on this profile.
Stay tuned for more updates on Wattpad, the Wattys, and brand new initiatives.
