In the space provided, type your original writing of 50 words or less, completing the phrase, “Kozy Shack pudding is so good …” Writing may reflect a personal experience with Kozy Shack pudding or any other description or expression that begins with this exact phrase.
(I messed up and ENDED my entry with that phrase...guess that'll teach me to read the full instructions first)
When official entry form (including essay) is completed, click submit. You will receive a confirmation thank you message after submission, indicating that your entry has been received.
Your writing is an online submission to www.KozyShack.com
JUDGING CRITERIA. Winning entries will be determined by The Guild Group, an independent judging organization (the “Judges”). Writing submissions will be judged based on (1) relevance to theme, (2) originality of idea and (3) creativity of expression, each to be weighted equally. There is no minimum length or required format/style, but writings that exceed 50 words (opening phrase not included) will be disqualified.
Winners will be notified via email and/or phone. Writing must be included as part of official entry form; other means of submission (e.g., e-mail attachment) will not be accepted. No joint/group entries or business/group/organization/club entries will be accepted. Entry must be submitted by a single individual. Writing must be solely the original work of the entrant. DO NOT COPY THE WORKS OF OTHERS OR INCLUDE THE NAMES, TRADEMARKS, COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL OR OTHER PROPERTY OF ANY THIRD PARTY IN THE WRITING WITHOUT THE EXPRESS WRITTEN CONSENT OF THE THIRD PARTY IN QUESTION. (Proof of such consent may be required by Sponsor/Judges as part of the winner verification procedure and, in the absence of proof of such consent, such potentially winning entrant will be disqualified). Writing must not have been published previously or have been submitted to any other competition or contest. Sponsor and Judges reserve the right to disqualify any entry that, in the opinion of either party, (a) refers, depicts or in any way reflects negatively upon the Sponsor, the Promotion or any other person or entity (the foregoing includes but is not limited to essays that are defamatory, libelous or slanderous, as determined by Sponsor/Judges in their sole discretion); or (b) includes any content that is objectionable, inappropriate, unfit for publication or otherwise unacceptable.
