2) By submitting a work you consent to it being posted on this blog

4) Two winners will be chosen, one winner will be chosen by myself and the second will be chosen via divination
5) Prizes will be announced to the winners and the winners alone, however the value of said prizes will be between 20-25 dollars.
6) By making a submission you are agreeing upon your honor and word that in the event of winning you will honor Aphrodite with (at minimum) a libation in a timely and respectful manner
THE RULES FOR MYSELF:
1) I will be impartial, judging things not on my relationship to the person but rather on the quality of the work
2) I will not denigrate or refuse to post a work unless it represents a vilification or otherwise antagonistic viewpoint towards the Goddess Aphrodite
3) I will cite all works appropriately and link back to their blog if possible
4) I will not penalize those who present interpretations of Aphrodite which are different from my own
Lets start the second agon!
