What's a Reverse Challenge?
Whereas some fests have an author writing a story which is then given to an artist to create art based on that story, a 'Reverse Challenge' inverts it so that artists create images first, and authors then write works inspired by the images. The first phase is the initial creation period for the artists, at the end of which their work will be submitted. Once we have all submissions, we'll match the art to the authors that have signed up to participate. Because there are in general more writers than artists in our fandom, each piece will likely have more than one fic inspired by it. The art and the fic will be presented together once posting begins.
