Contest Brief

Read this first! >>>Obviously, there can be only one winner in this contest, but every good attempt made to produce a great article will NOT go unnoticed. Therefore, consider this as a great long-term opportunity to showcase your research & writing talents. Impress us, and y'all can expect a lot of work immediately and in the future. We hope y’all will enjoy this challenge!<<<

The subject is “how a vegan lifestyle can save the animals and also give someone a better conscience”

Just to give you a tip: Veganism is not only a diet but it is a lifestyle. Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose. While no vegan will be 100% perfect, this is not about being perfect but about doing our best for the animals who are innocent & powerless.

We expect y'all to decide the title.

This is for a vegan website, so you decide the appropriate writing style.

Skills we test:

Research
Start (first impression & getting readers to read)
Relevance
Writing style (vocabulary/ engagement/ flow/ inspiring & moving/friendly tone /humour (a bonus))
Presentation (headings/subheadings/bullet points/short sentences/ small paragraphs)
Inspiring conclusion

You don't have to have all the above skills to win but whoever gets most of the above skills right will have a higher chance. Give more emphasis to research and writing style.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Looking forward to a great experience, all the best to all!

Employer Feedback

“The request was to write an article with 2000 words. It was a contest and she competed with 14 other contesters to be chosen as the winner. This was to test her research and writing style and she absolutely delivered. What I liked about her writing is the way she handles the language, the flow, the emotions and touch she brings to it. Great first impression and have no hesitation in recommending her. ”

    Sorry about the last minute entry (#14); I only saw the contest with three hours left and had to rush it a bit; so the word count is around 1,300. I've left references and links, though, and I'd appreciate any feedback you can provide one way or another.

    Excellent and interesting field.. contest holder, without any guarantee of winning it's difficult to find the motivation to create an awesome article at the current price.. why not allow us write 500 words and if you find a piece that attracts your interest,, you can hire your winner to expand the content to 2000 words.. i saw this contest since you posted it, i understand you have a budget but i recommend the word count be reduced to 500-700 words, after you've determined your writer, you can then get a full version.. what do you think ?

      Whilst there is no hard and fast rule to produce 2000 words, we feel there is a huge difference between 500 words and 2000 words article in terms of research skill. Anyway if you can show us your research skills and writing skills, we can consider even if you do it for a lesser number of words. There is also a guaranteed winner. You have one more day left.

    Hello Contest Holder,
    As an aspiring (like you said, it's a journey) vegan, this is an ideal outlet to share my thoughts.
    However, 2000 words for $25 is less than half of the regular rate for a good writer, without any guarantee of a pay at all.
    Would you consider making this a contest of 500 words instead - there isn't that much more that 2,000 words can tell you about a writer's abilities and affinity for a topic that 500 words will.
    Also, you will get a lot more responses with that change, which would mean a larger pool of talent from which you would be able to choose the best candidate(s).
    Thanks.

      Hello.
      Thank you for your reply. Apoogies for the delay in responding; it seems Freelancer does not inform us of replies to messages.
      What you said is absolutely true - keeping the momentum going for 2000 words is a bigger challenge than producing 4 chunks of 500 words.
      Would you be able to give us an idea of what the rates would be for regular contributions after this competition?
      (It makes me cringe to talk $. I would have gone past this project if I didn't share the philosophy behind your site)

      Thanks.

      @TerrexTV thanks for your interest and we like the fact that you're a vegan. Though in this contest we have asked writers to do research and produce an article, going forward we would be doing the research (at least most of the time) and request writers to make it unique and add more appeal, emotion & inspiration to it. That would drastically reduce the work & time for writers since good research takes a lot of reading & time consuming. As an example if we provide research content which has 1500 words and if we request the writer to make it a 2000 word article, our budgets will depend on quotes we receive from writer’s pool we have selected, the topic, writer’s skill set & knowledge. Required number of words may vary drastically according to the topics. We hope we have clarified your query to the best of our ability.

    It is fine if y'all are doing research online and we understand that. But just copying other website content and dumping into this article will not be accepted. You need to make it unique. Here's a set of skills we test: Research /start (first impression & getting readers to read)/ relevance/style (vocabulary/ engagement/ flow/ inspiring & moving/friendly tone) / presentation (headings/subheadings/bullet points/short sentences/ small paragraphs)/ inspiring conclusion

    We will wait until the deadline to pick the winner so all will have a chance of attempting. That way we will have the maximum entries and would have a better comparison among many writers.

    is this contest going to have a winner? over 80% of contests in the past few weeks don't end with a winner declared, can you guarantee that this contest would have a winner?

      What makes you think there is no winner when our contest clearly has a label saying, winner guaranteed? Yes a winner will be chosen for sure and all the other attempts to present a good article will also not go unnoticed. So even if you're not a winner if your attempt was good it is still a good opportunity to get highlighted and to be considered for future work. Because we need many writers.

      Hey Fatamaz, this we are doing to test many writers and in a way it is like a recruitment process for gathering a pool of writers for our website content development for the future. The difference is we are even willing to give a gift to the best writer and also we are considering all the good articles presented by writers and would not go unnoticed. Because we need many writers and we feel this is the best way to test. It is up to you to consider this as a long-term opportunity to showcase your writing talents and enjoy the challenge.

    Guys, Girls read the contest details in full before asking questions. That is one good trait a good writer should possess. "Attention to details" For anything not indicative in the details you're always welcome to ask.
