The first round of House Big Bang Challenge was a huge success, bringing thirteen new Housefic novellas of at least twenty thousand words each and nearly thirty pieces of art into the fandom. The novellas in the archive represent the variety of ships and genres in the fandom, and range in subject from canon to crossovers to crack--and the art is just as varied and just as terrific. In fact, the entire challenge was was such fun that we're doing it again.

The general rules and timeline of the challenge are as follows, but they may be subject to change/revision when the Official Sign-Ups, Rules, and Important Dates are posted.

Challenge Rules for Writers
1. Stories must have a minimum length of 20 000 words. There is no maximum length.
2. Stories may be any genre: gen, het, boyslash, or girlslash.
3. The story's central element must relate to House, MD, and its characters. Crossovers and alternate universes are permitted.
4. Stories will be posted to a central site on the day the challenge goes live, with links to the summaries in this community for feedback, but afterwards may be posted to your personal journal or site.
5. The stories MAY NOT be posted, in whole or in part, prior to March 29, 2009. You may, of course, share with betas, but please keep your story under wraps as much as possible, so that the artists/vidders can make their choices anonymously when the time comes.
6. All stories must be betaed before final posting.

Challenge Rules for Artists and Vidders
1. You agree to create at least one piece of art or a vid to accompany one of the Big Bang stories.
2. Art can be of any type you wish: orginal illustration, cover art, photo manip.
3. Art or Vid can be of any rating you choose, provided that it is not more than one rating higher than your chosen fic. For instance, if your fic is G, gen, you cannot make shippy art or rate higher than PG-13.
4. You will be able to post your artwork or vid at your livejournal or site after the challenge goes live. If you'd rather, we will host your art at the Big Bang site.
5. Art and vids may not be posted unlocked anywhere on the web, in whole or in part, before March 25, 2009. Posting to betas or regular small audiencing groups is excepted, but keep the numbers down.
