Ahoy, lagoon dwellers, today we bring you another fintastic contest and a very special one!
Read on to find out about the prompt and what you need to do to enter.
A body washes up on the beach. Where did it come from? Is it a stranger or someone you know? Are there more victims to come? Who finds the body and how? Your job is to tell us what happens next.
Are you key to solving the case? Does the body come back to life and start the zombie apocalypse? Does it become your strange and surreal ally ala Swiss Army Man? Did your victim perish to the dark lure of an evil mermaid?
The circumstances and details of the body are up to you. Stretch your imagination and construct a thrilling or whacky summer mystery adventure.
The contest begins June 12, 2017 and closes 11:59pm GMT on July 12, 2017
