Okay fellow writers, here's the scoop! The House MD Anaheim Convention '09'is sponsoring a Fan Fic Contest. It is running from June 21- October 31, 2008 What's that you say; are there rules? So glad you asked!
Fan Fiction Contest Rules
1. Fiction must be an original work and never posted to any website before the contest date.
2. Fiction cannot use crossovers and must remain in cannon with House MD up to 4:16. You can use any time within the 1:1 through 4:16 to set your story.
3. You may introduce a new character to the story as long as the character follows guidelines and cannon.
4. No slash for the purpose of this contest will be accepted.
5. Please keep the number of pages between five and twelve for judging.
6. The rating of the stories is suitable for a 13 year old to read. Use the TV guidelines for the show as your measuring stick. If it can't be said on House, rethink it.

9. You may use any style of writing you wish including narrative, dialogue, etc. I
10. You may write a character's 'back story' for this contest. Please research first and stay as close to cannon as possible. Invention for the sake of a story will not be accepted. (House cannot be Wilson's long missing brother for example.)
