"A pen is mightier than a sword. 

We, at Competing Competitions, believe that a Pen leads the way in shaping the world and a word changes the way the world functions.

 

The written word should not be limited a few words or a few banters. It has to take a form and shape the society as we see it. The sad reality, however, it takes time and effort to put ideas into words and for the most part, it's not rewarding enough. So we came up with a solution that changes it. 

 

Write & Earn Policy is created to allow the Competing Competitions’ Community an opportunity to present their ideas, pose their questions to the world, encourage interested participants to research into several areas of prominence; foster a community of writers that are passionate about writing articles that will impact the society in a positive way.

 

Through this policy, we intend to provide appropriate recognition to the writers who are spending their essential time and resources for conducting the research and changing the world for the better. 

You can learn more about the terms & guidelines below

Analysing the Competition.  Analysing the future

Why giveaway?

Writing a research paper or an article, or sharing a comprehensive idea that pushes the world to change the world is not an easy task. A lot of us, who want to share our ideas; who like writing are being forced to limit ourselves to social media platforms and a few statements because the sheer amount of time spent on writing is not sufficiently rewarded.

 

The aim is to change this and provide appropriate recognition & reward and build a community of passionate writers working for the betterment of the society.

Publishing Guarantee?

While we try our best to ensure that your views are expressed in front of our community, the articles that are submitted to us will have to satisfy our quality standards before we publish them.

 

The article you submit is reviewed by several professionals and editors who intend to check thoroughly before sending it for publishing.

Why 120 days?

The 120 day period is kept in place to ensure the article goes through several reviews before publishing it. As a writer involved in this policy, there are three stages that you will have to be aware of:

 

Stage – 1:

 

After you submit the article, we will check the legal stance, merit of the argument, facts and content of the article and we will either provide a preliminary approval / reject the article.

A preliminary approval means that we see merit in the article and we are willing to publish the article.

 

Stage – 2:

 

Once you receive the preliminary approval, we will suggest some edits in the article which you will have to edit.

 

We will be revieing the article multiple time, so you can expect multiple reviews. You can inform us the reasons if you feel like the edit we made is not necessary.

 

After discussions and after ensuring that the article that you submitted requires no more suggestions from our side, we will send an email saying that the Article is “claimed” by us.

 

Stage – 3:

 

What it means for an article to be claimed –

  1. You become entitled to the earnings.

  2. We will publish the article.

  3. The rights on the article, except for Author credits will transfer to us.

 

Once the article is claimed, we will publish the article in a desired outlet / product. Once the article is published you will receive and email with the subject line – “Article is published”.

 

You will receive a copy of the product, free only for you, to share it with your friends and family. Keep in mind that you are prohibited to do any commercial activity using that product.

You, the Writer gets the Author credits, not us.

If we update your article in the future, then we'll share the author credits with you. You will remain the first author. 

If you update it yourself, you will have the author credits.
