Paranormalists Contest Rules

Paranormalists runs three concurrent contests. Members are eligible for prizes which will be accumulated throughout the contest year and awarded to the contest winners on or around April 1 after the close of the contests. Prizes will be listed under the Treasure Trove sidebar as they are accumulated.  The kickoff date is expected to by March 25, 2010 when the Golden Heart finalists are named. This will be a big day because Golden Heart finalists automatically qualify for two contests--Finals and Points.

By Finals

The member with the highest number of finals wins! Current rankings will be tracked in the Finals Standings sidebar. In case of a tie, a drawing will be held to determine the prize winner. If you don't see your contest final listed in a post, email  Paranormalists1 @ gmail . com [without the spaces] with a link to the announcement so we can update our list. The largest number of finals over the course of a year beginning March 25th and ending March 24th wins. Why those dates? Because that's when the Golden Heart finalists are announced which marks the start of our "contest year."
