FXOpen is delighted to announce the continuation of the Forex Article Contest. The next round of the competition is expected to launch on 11th November and last for 5 weeks. The contest prize pool amounts to US$1,400 and it will be distributed among the best Forex writers on New Year’s Eve!
Worth a try to get a present for the New Year Day? We think it is!
Forex Article Contest is a real tournament for talented and creative people competing in writing for the title of the Best Forex Article Author. The basic requirement is to prepare unique and quality material regarding Forex trading. You may speculate on any topic related to the foreign exchange market but you should demonstrate deep understanding of its specifics.
This time the competition organizers decided not to limit participants’ creativity and introduced only one category for the articles to be written and judged. “Forex Trading” is a broad theme that will enable each contestant to choose whether to write about some aspect of Forex focusing on its pros and cons or regale the reader with a story of a thorny path to Forex trading with a long-desired happy end.
Participants are free to choose any topic for their work but they have to follow the rules of the competition i.e., they should provide useful, informative and original articles, supported by examples from their personal experience, as well as screenshots, pictures, charts and graphs. Market analytics will not be considered in the contest.
Another peculiar thing of the contest second round is the number of winning places. It has been decided to award 5 authors of the most successful articles so, the prizes will be distributed as follows:
- 1st place – US$500
- 2nd place – US$300
- 3rd place – US$200
- 4th place – US$150
- 5th place – US$150
The articles will be published in the company’s official blog and will be announced in the social networks including FXOpen Facebook. Sign up and be the first to read stories from your peers!
The winners will be defined on the basis of voting held in the social networks i.e., the number of ‘likes’ and appropriate comments of your fellow traders and social networkers will help to decide the final outcome of the Forex Article Contest. There will also be a randomly chosen voter who will receive a US$100 bonus!
FXOpen representatives reserve the right to judge the ranking of the competitors and will ensure that fair play is observed at all times. The company’s employees are not allowed to take part in the competition. The contest will be prolonged in case of insufficient number of quality works.
The prizes will be added to the participants’ ECN or STP 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 submitted material should be useful to other traders and those new to Forex.
The entries 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 13th December.
