  • Articles must be written in English, containing at least 300 words.
  • You can increase your chances by submitting more essays in different categories.
  • The winner will be announced once we’ve analyzed and published all works on our website.
  • The author of the best article will be contacted and asked to send us his shipping address and a 100$ wish list from a puzzle webshop of his choice:, SpeedCubeShop or Lightake.
    The 100$ budget needs to cover shipping costs too.
