Welcome to Interregional Tri-Contest 2022!
The European Home Office is happy and proud to announce the Interregional Tri-Contest 2022! This event will be co-hosted with Portugal, 10000 Islands and the Forest and will comprise three different competitions: a Photography contest, a Flag Design contest and a Writing contest.

How to Participate

To participate you just need to submit your entry by sending it to the corresponding Jury whitin the deadline.

Rules and Requirements

Each competition has its own set of rules, please read them carefully.

The nations who wish to join must write a story regarding either an event or a simple story set within their NS countries. This part of the competition will be divided in two seperate sections: one for English-written stories.

Regarding the texts themselves, these must be written out in a dispatch in the respective language of the competition the writer wishes to join (he can submit up to 1 in each). All text formats are allowed (poetry, prose...) and there is no word limit. Plagiarism and hate speech will not be tolerated in a submission (though hateful topics may be explored in the narrative).

In the English competition a jury composed of players from different regions will give out four different thematic awards to the best texts: best scenery, best story progression, best character development and best plot;

As for the Portuguese one, a poll will be conducted in Portugal for its citizens to choose the best text out of the bunch.

Once finished, submissions must be sent via telegram in a dispatch to:

- All the judges, for the English competition

- Portugal's Minister Alentejo and Algarve, for the Portuguese competition.

You will be able to compete in 4 different categories, submitting up to 2 photos taken by you in each one:

- Black and White photos

- Photos of national monuments and landmarks

- Animal photos

- Free category

Filters will be permited for the photos, but their impact on the quality of the pictures will be taken in account. Plagiarism won't be tolerated.

The 3 best pictures from each category will be chosen by a multirregional juri, to whom you must send your pictures with links or in other available mediums that facilitate the jury's work.

The participants can submit one original design - and with absolute thematic freedom - with the following limitations:

- You can only use up to 4 colours and in this set of 4 you can only use one of the following: green, red, blue.

- Coat of arms and others like it must abide by the same rules.

Official Dispatch

Is the camera rolling? Let's do this then!

Welcome to the First Edition of the Lusitanian Games (or Lusitaníadas in our oh so tongue-twisting Portuguese). In a never-seen-before attempt, Portugal, Europe, Forest and 10000 Islands came together to offer a fun and engaging time for all the NationStates multiverse: a cultural competition! Consisting of three seperate competitions - Writing, Photography and Flag Design - we hope these games may bring forth some peaceful banter and aid in the strengthening of bonds during such turbulent times. Without further ado, let the games begin!


How can I participate?

Regardless of your region, status in the WA, heck as long as you have a pulse you may join any of the three competitions we have in store for you!
But first, please read the rules below (click the images) and, when your project is finished, send it in the appropriate medium via telegram to each competition's judges.
