Fan Fiction Writing Contest Rules
Deadline: All manuscripts must be received by YAOiFEST by Monday, August 3rd 2009. Please send all manuscripts by email to:

Or submit them through our contest forum:
Contest Form

Categories: Lemon(Rated 18+) and Lime(anything rated lower then 18+). Do not send submissions to the Lemon category if you are under eighteen.

Content: No Shota or underage characters. If your characters are not identified as over 18 your written work will not be accepted. No animals; anthropomorphics are fine as long as they are humanoid and their sexual anatomy is human. Your work must depict a relationship between two men. The relationship should be central to the resolution of the story’s conflict. The relationship does not have to be explicitly stated for the Lime category. Shounen-ai, or bromances are acceptable in the Lime category but they do have to be central.

Professionalism: Please use spellchecker! Also employ a beta reader or proofreader if you have one. Don’t distract from your riveting story, fantastic chemistry and well drawn characters with obvious grammatical and spelling errors.

Contest Details: Written works will be judged in the first half of August. Winning entries will be posted on the website. Depending on the number of submissions we may have one, two or three winners plus runner-ups.
