You have all played such an important role in helping us shape this story and this world, and we'd like to invite you to contribute more (and maybe have the opportunity to send a few of you a very special thank-you)!

About Earth-1796 Fanworks Challenge (earth17962014)

Active since:



Here's how it works:

We're inviting you to submit 1796-inspired fanworks for the next four weeks. We've created a collection for this purpose, here:

When you submit your work to the collection, it will be invisible through June 7, 2014.

In a month, we'll open the entries to voting. All entries will appear as "anonymous" entries. Readers will vote for the three best art entries and the three best fiction entries. Each of the top three vote-getters for each category will get one of the following prizes:

Screen-Accurate Steve Rogers Dog Tags

Avengers Assemble Lunchbox Grab Bag

Comfy Cozy Captain America Fleece Throw and Marvel Kawaii Collection Socks 4-Pack

NYPD “America’s Finest” Captain America Coffee Cup and Journal

Rain and Tea will each select an additional "Authors' Choice" prizewinner, someone whose work we particularly liked but who did not win, and these winners will receive a prize as well.

The first-place vote getters will get to choose from the pot of prizes first, then the second, third, and then the Author's Choice winners, so that everyone gets the fairest shot at the prize they want most.

Voting is now open, here!. You will be able to vote until midnight, Sunday June 22, 2014.

Please let us know if you have any questions! We'll be happy to answer!

Thanks once again for being the best readers ever!
