On August 27, 2015, the owners of the now-defunct Castle Fanfiction Contest announced the first Forever Fanfiction Writing Contest. Participants were asked to write an English language story that was 1000 words or less, featured recognizable Forever characters, and included at least 30 words of dialogue. The first, second, and third place winners would receive Amazon.com gift cards of $100, $50, and $25, respectively. Stories were judged based on writing ability.
