Who is the program for?

Everyone! Anyone can make an account and start publishing their content on right away. If you have a passion for gaming or esports you are good to go.

What should I know before I submit?

You should read the Academy Rules.

What kind of content is allowed?

As long as it’s about esports and gaming we welcome it all! Some of the types that worked well in the past are:

  • Esports or game news (roster changes, new releases, etc.)
  • Interviews (with competitive players, game devs, influencers, etc.)
  • Guides (tips & tricks, player improvement, stream growth etc.)
  • Listicles (best players, craziest esports moments, etc.)
  • Reviews (of video games, tournaments, gaming hardware, etc.)
  • Opinion pieces (have an opinion on anything gaming related? Share it!)

Should I submit my own pictures?

Only if you own the copyright to use it. Otherwise, no, leave it to our editors. We will find the best pictures to go along with your awesome text.

what is the duration of the competition?

Writer Academy activity starts with the first calendar day of each month and ends with its last. With a new month the counter resets again.

What constitutes “the most impactful contributors”?

Writers whose content by the end of the month generated the most interest from the community. That includes readers on the site, social media shares, upvotes, etc.

WHAT CONSTITUTES “the most active contributors”?

Writers who contributed the most content to the program by the end of the month.

Where can I see if I am one of the most active or impactful writers?

We want the writers to focus on improving their craft, not the numbers that it generates. The winners will be announced after the end of each month. Follow our Twitter to get notified when we do.
