I definitely had to hit up the host of the contest to see what made her come up with this fun, creative idea.

Me: Hi Angel, I am writing an article about the Jingle all the way a holiday fan fiction contest.
I am curious how this wonderful contest came to be?
Angel: The contest started when I found a Halloween contest that used prompts. The only thing was that they didn’t give you much room to be creative. With our contest prompts you can get as creative as you like as long as the theme is there.

Me: Now if I am correct, it’s for banners and one-shots? And this contest is only on Stars correct?
Angel: yes, correct on all accounts. Due to it having banners and ffn doesn’t support banners, is why we have it on Stars.

Me: What is something you would like people to know about this contest that you might not have already said?
Angel: Only thing I can think to add is that we wish to include all fandoms in out contest. We try to keep our contest as interesting as possible. We will continue to have this contest every year.
