All registered members of Uncyclopedia are encouraged to enter, though a few conditions and limitations apply. Judges are barred from entering the competition (see here for the list of judges). 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.
You may enter only once for each category (for which you are eligible; one article per category per person). An article 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. Additionally, all work must be your own and cannot have been made with the assistance of anyone else.
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.
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.
