Carnevale Contest 2021
This year, again, we do something different. This year, Carnevale is in celebration of The BDSM Garden. Instead of fiction stories, we will be writing articles to be posted on The Garden website. This year is a quality plus quantity contest.
In general, in an article, please explain the “who, what, when, where, how and why” if it a research style, for an opinion piece, both pro and con views are appreciated by the reader for learning and decision making.
You will write a one- page article on any of the given topics below or your own topic related to D/s or BDSM.
In exchange for one article, you will receive one point. For every article or additional, complete page to an article that you submit you will receive one point. Partial points will be awarded to additional pages at the discretion and opinion of the triad of admins.
Articles must be your own work. Quotations may be used but 85% of the work must be original.
Quotations must be cited by author and website or book and page. MLA format is not required. Citation lines will not be counted toward the space or word count.
Articles will be checked for plagiarism and citations.
