Hello everyone, welcome back to GameFAQs Competitions!

First, a disclaimer; This competition is not officially sponsored by GameFAQs or CBS Interactive and all monetary rewards have been provided by the moderation staff.
This month's competition has again been sponsored by @yoshifan1 ! (This guy must be rich. :P)

Now that we have the legal stuff out of the way, this month your task is to tell a short story about what a video game character did on their last day of school.

You can tell this story using any medium you want: you can draw a picture, write a poem or story, perform a song, write a song parody, film an interpretative dance, perform a skit, make a music video, write a comic, or anything else you can think of. Then, the moderation staff will vote on the entries, and the top five will win prizes. A $100 Amazon giftcard will be awarded as the grand prize, a $50 Amazon giftcard will be awarded to the first runner up, and there will be three 10 karma runner-up prizes.
In addition, two non-winning entries will receive 5 karma.

If you pass on the amazon prize, you will receive either 50 karma for first place or 30 for second place and the prizes will shift one rank down.

To enter, create your work, and then upload it to a third-party site; for example, YouTube for videos, Imgtc or Imgur for images, pastebin for text, or MediaFire for other file types. Then, enter with the link. Note that you don't have to use those sites, any publicly accessible site will work.

Important! Please submit your entries using the following format:

Entry: http://www.yourentryurl.com/thisisanexampleurl

I cannot guarantee your entries will be considered if they are not in this format.You can include other text in the post, so long as the above text appears on its own line somewhere in your entry.

The deadline for entry will be in two weeks, on July 16th at 11:59PM Eastern Results will be posted one week later on July 23rd

Notes
1. Joint entries are permitted, but whoever posts them will win the prize in the event of a cash prize, otherwise the karma prize will be split between the two entrants.

2. Maximum two entries per user, but only one winning entry per user. If you enter twice and both qualify for prizes, your higher-placed entry will receive the prize karma, and lower-placed entries will be bumped up.

3. All work must be original. That's not to say that you can't use other images, music, etc. as part of your entry so long as your usage of that other content falls under the privileges granted by Fair Use, but the actual end product must be your own.

4. The Terms of Service still apply -- don't post any entries that violate any of the normal terms of service.

5. Mark your spoilers. If your entry somehow spoils some game, note before the link to the entry what game is being spoiled.

6. To change your entry, delete your original post. I won't be compiling a list of entries until the deadline passes, so as long as your post is visible at the deadline, it'll be added.

7. The subject of the contest can be a bit flexible. No one's going to check if the character in question really is your favorite character, and your entry can focus on more than one character if you'd like.

Nice contest of my type.

I didn't understand what you meant about not using these sites. I will use imgur/imgtc.

You can use them, but you're not required to. Some people own their own domains.

Just needs to be something the judges can get through. I've had limericks as submissions before as well as 5-10 page short stories.
