This weekend, on October 17th and 18th, the TCGplayer Standard State Championships are taking place! (Be sure to click on that link to find your local venue!)
We're so confident that you're going to take home the title that TCGplayer wants to hear all about it. Have a sweet new Battle for Zendikar list that just dominated? Well that's great, because we want an article from you!
In addition to articles from the winner of each Standard State Championship, if you happen to be the finalist, we'd also like to hear about your tournament as well!
So what will you get and how can you get it?
We're glad you asked! Here are some of the juicy details:
- Any article that meets the above criteria (Winner or Finalist Report) and is published will appear on the front page along with TCGplayer's regular stable of writers such as Craig Wescoe, Seth Manfield, Frank Lepore, and more!
- Any author published by TCGplayer.com will receive a store credit award in the amount of $25. Payment will be provided once your article is posted.
- The TCGplayer.com 2015 Standard State Championship promotion will run from October 19th - October 30th. Any article submitted after the 30th of October will be accepted or denied at our discretion.
- Any player submitting an article should also submit a portrait image (of decent resolution, looking at the camera, appropriate for print, etc.) that can accompany his or her article on the front page. Any article without an appropriate profile image will be postponed until one is provided.
- Articles must be exclusive to TCGplayer.com and must be between 1,800 and 2,200 words. Articles should be submitted via Word document or through Google Docs. We cannot accept PDFs or articles pasted into the body of the email.
- As a general suggestion we recommend you avoid tournament report type articles. Things like, "In round two I played a Forest, attacked for two then passed. He played a land and passed," are best avoided.
We prefer a piece that discusses why you chose the deck you did, how it tested, why your list stands out, what it's good against, what are some weak matchups, what you learned, etc. There are typically much better received.
We hope so! If you want your Standard State Championship article published by the largest Magic: The Gathering site on the web, make sure you email it to "submit[AT]tcgplayer[DOT]com" along with the subject line, "Standard State Championship 2015 Promotion - [Your State], [Standing]."
For example, "Standard State Championship 2015 Promotion - Washington, 1st."
Also, it should go without saying, but please be sure and include your full name within the article or email along with your decklist. (Both of these have been forgotten before.)
That's it! We can't wait to receive your articles and good luck at your events!
