All registered members of Uncyclopedia are encouraged to enter, though a few conditions and limitations apply. Non-noobs (people who've been here longer than 3 months) cannot enter the "Best Noob Article" category, and noobs are not restricted to the "Best Noob Article" category. Images can only be entered in the Best Collaboration, Best Potatochop, and Best T-Shirt Design categories.
You may enter only once for each category (for which you are eligible; one entry per category per person). An article or image may only be entered in one category, and it must fit within the requirements of a particular category. You may not change three words and the title of an article to make it eligible for another category; such behavior will result in both articles being disqualified. All work must be your own and cannot have been made with the assistance of anyone else (except for the Best Collaboration category).
Articles created prior to the competition cannot be submitted. Also, no plagiarism. Using resources such as the Reefer Desk, Image Request, or Pee Review is forbidden. Users may, however, use Vital, Uncyclopedia:The Creative Process, Category:Rewrite, Special:Wantedpages, Uncyclopedia:Requested Articles and/or Inspire an Article to help get ideas.
This year's Poo Lit Surprise features community judging. Anyone with an account older than 30 days can vote for one entry per category. Competition entrants cannot vote for any category they have entered.
We will check the IP addresses of all entrants to ensure that no sockpuppet accounts have been used to circumvent the competition's rules. Any violation of the above rules will result in disqualification from the competition.
