FXOpen invites everybody to take part in a contest judging the best article about Forex. You have an opportunity to not only win the prize money but also to discover hidden, new talents. The contest starts on 1st September and is open to all.
There are two categories in the competition: “Forex Theory” and “Forex Success Story.”
To participate in the category “Forex Success Story,” you are required to send to us an article about your personal achievements in Forex. Your success story may be told in various ways: you may wish to describe your effortless conquest of the Forex market or regale the reader with a story of a thorny path to Forex trading but with a long-desired happy end in the form of steady profits. You may wish to tell the reader about a “successful” debut in Forex associated with your first losses or you may speculate on what you believe represents true success in Forex and how it is implemented in your life. All narrative forms including humorous will be judged equally.
The articles in the category “Forex Theory” should have a different focus i.e., you are required to have a more academic approach when working on the articles and demonstrate a deep understanding of the market and its specifics. You are free to write about any aspect of Forex, about the pros and cons of various trading strategies, about the most innovative and effective Expert Advisors and, most importantly, about how it fits into your life.
Basically, it is the main requirement for the works in this category to provide useful, original and informative content, supported by examples from the personal working experience, as well as screenshots, charts, and graphs. Market analytics, however, will not be accepted.
Authors of the three best articles will receive:
The category “Forex Theory”
- 1st place – US$500
- 2nd place – US$250
- 3rd place – US$150
The category “Forex Success Story”
- 1st place – US$250
- 2nd place – US$100
- 3rd place – US$50
The articles will be published in the company’s official blog and will be announced in FXOpen social networks. Sign up and be the first to read stories from your peers!
The winners will be voted for using FXOpen Facebook i.e., the number of ‘likes’ and appropriate comments. Your fellow traders and social network users will thus decide the final outcome of the competition. There will also be a randomly chosen voter who will receive a US$100 bonus!
The event organizers – FXOpen team – reserve the right to judge the ranking of the competitors and will ensure that fair play is observed at all times. The contest will be prolonged in case of an insufficient number of quality works. FXOpen employees are not allowed to take part in the competition.
The prizes will be added to the participants’ ECN accounts registered in FXOpen.
The articles must be between 400 to 1,500 words and written in English.
For the works to be accepted, the articles must not contain any promotional material or criticisms or defamatory comments of other brokers and the services they provide. The content should contain interesting facts that may be useful to other traders and those new to Forex.
They must also contain quality content i.e., duplicate, previously published or plagiarised content, low-quality material, extremely short notes with no illustrations or ‘cut and paste’ articles will not be accepted.
The closing date for entries is 1st October.
To participate in the competition, e-mail your entry to [email protected]. Ensure that you provide your FXOpen eWallet number along with FXOpen Forum login and to write “FXOpen Article Contest” in the email subject line. If your work has passed moderation, you will receive a confirmation e-mail that your article has been accepted. It will be published in the company’s blog with a note that this article figures in the contest. You will also be able to see other contestants’ stories in the company’s blog.
