You have 72 hours to write a scenario (from Tuesday to Sunday morning). We the judges will give you 3 writing obstacles to inspire and challenge your scenario idea. For example, “You must incorporate a labyrinth in your scenario” or “Colors must be a central mechanic in your scenario”. How you incorporate and interpret the obstacles are totally up to you! This years writing obstacles will remain secret until the competition begins.
Remember! There will be lots of opportunities to get help and guidance during the writing process, so you won’t be all alone. We lot forward to seeing your writing skills blossom in the scenario writing competition.
Writing obstacles: The 3 writing obstacles will be available from 10 am on Tuesday. If you can’t meet up physically we will email them to you.

Your scenario needs to be handed in on Sunday at 10 am. There will be individual feedback from the judges for everyone between 3 and 4 pm. The award ceremony for the winner will take place at the banquet with the other Otto Awards.
