Nightmare Night Story Competition 2020

The spookiest stories ever written by Ponykind!

We're looking for some of the best spine-chilling stories our herd can come up with to introduce our new Mascot Misty to her very first Nightmare Night! We have 2 categories so read carefully what's accepted in each.

Luna Stories

These are family-friendly spooky stories. Anypony of any age can read and write these.

You can add an age recommendation to your story (eg 8-12 yrs) if you like, but it must be appropriate for under 18s.

Luna stories do not have to include Princess Luna as a character. You can include any characters and creatures you like, canon and/or OCs.

Your story must be at least 1 side of A4 long, but no longer than 5 sides of A4.

Nightmare Moon Stories

These are darker, scarier stories. Only ponies over 18 can read or write these. Gore, GrimDark etc are accepted in this category.

You can add an age recommendation to your story (eg 18-24 yrs) if you like, but only over 18s will be allowed access to read it.

Nightmare Moon stories do not have to include Nightmare Moon as a character. You can include any characters and creatures you like, canon and/or OCs.

Your story must be at least 1 side of A4 long, but no longer than 5 sides of A4.

Rules and Entry Link

You may submit as many stories to each category as you like, each one will be considered on its own merit. You may submit a sequel/prequel to another story of yours but both together must stay within the 5 page limit.

If you submit a Luna Story which we feel is too adult, we will consider it as a Nightmare Moon Story instead. Equally, if you submit a Nightmare Moon Story which we feel would be fine for under 18s to read, we will consider it as a Luna Story instead. These decisions will be made by majority vote among the UKBP Staff team and you will be informed if your story is affected.

You may include any characters or creatures from any generation of My Little Pony, as well as any OCs you like. If you want to include an OC who doesn't belong to you, please ask the owner first.

To submit your entry, email your story to info@ukbp.org before the 30th October 2020. You can send us a link to your GoogleDoc or FimFic.net, attach a Word Document or copy and paste your text into the body of your email. All stories will be judged equally so don't panic too much about presentation. Its the words we care about for this competition.

There will be one winning Luna Story and one winning Nightmare Moon story, announced on 31st October across our network. The winning Authors will receive an official UK Bronies & Pegasisters Headshot Icon of their OC, courtesy of our Design Team.
