The 2017 RotoViz Writing Contest

It’s that time of year again. We’re back with the 2017 version of the RotoViz writing contest. This is now year three of the contest, and in each of 2015 and 2016, we’ve had some great submissions that led to further writing opportunites here at the ‘Viz, with those writers still writing for us today. If you are this year’s winner, you’ll get a lifetime RotoViz pass, and possibly even the chance to write some more.

Here’s how it works:

  1. You must use the Box Score Scout App.
  2. 800 word maximum.
  3. Make the case for a current year NFL draft prospect that you think will be overlooked during draft season.
  4. Your submission should be written “RotoViz style.” In addition to good grammar and punctuation, being clear and succinct also counts. Your article should be actionable, logical, and evidence-based. If you make an assertion, back it up with evidence. The evidence can come from any of our apps, or another source, but some of the evidence must come from the Box Score Scout App.
  5. Post your entry as a reply to this article, by clicking Add Comment at the bottom of this article (or by clicking this link). You should be able to paste in images and tables, but let us know if you have trouble with that.
  6. Deadline: April 24, 2017.
  7. We’ll review the submissions and announce a winner sometime during the week of May 1, 2017. We’ll run the article on the site, and the winner gets a lifetime subscription to RotoViz’s football content.
  8. Note that even without winning, we’ve found multiple regular contributors to RotoViz through this contest.

Good luck!
