Thanks for your long support for our forum,we appreciate it very much. To encourage even more participation, the China Daily Forum now introduces to you an exciting translation contest series!
Format of the contest: Anyone who wishes to enter the competition is required to translate a short conversation on a Chinese cartoon into English. To post your entry, simply reply to the thread with the cartoon.
Duration of the contest: This contest series will be a weekly one. A cartoon will be posted every week. The whole competition is expected to last for a year.
Award: A total of 200 credits will be awarded for the best translation each week. A panel of judges will decide which one is the best. More surprise awards are in store!
Panel of Judges: expatter, jl2315, seneca.To make the contest a more interactive experience, we have invited a panel solely made up of our forum members.
Deadline for Entries: 10 am every Monday. To faciliate the judges' attempts to make comments on every entry (so that later entries will not get an unfair advantage over previous ones), a deadline for entries have been set.
A brief word on the Chinese cartoon series: Named “I’m mad for a house!”, this series is drawn by the award-winning Chinese cartoonist Hao Yanpeng.
Normally we post the cartoon on Wednesday for translation and will announce the winner on the next Tuesday.
