For our latest contest we wanted to offer inspiration (or depression depending on how you look at it) to create the most wild, imaginative and unique Post-Apocalyptic pieces ever. You of course do not have to choose a prompt to participate and submit a piece, but it will probably be more fun if you do...
PROMPT A: Let's face it. We are living in a world when a negative headline generates a lot more clicks than a positive one. Inspiring news stories like drones being used to plant 1 billion trees by 2028 in Canada or for the first time scientists have reversed dementia in mice with a drug that reduces brain inflammation often get buried beneath the mountains of fear-inducing sentences strung together in inflaming paragraphs under clickbaity headlines that people who still call themselves journalists still call news. Forget that noise. Think about floating desalination plants. Dream up more uses for algae. Have you even heard of Greta Thunberg? Once the big one hits, maybe there's more room for hope afterwards. Create a post-apocalyptic world full of promise, innovation and hope for the future.
PROMPT B: But let's also face this. We are living in a world where one and a half acres of rainforest are lost every second, we are projected to add another 2 billion people to the planet in the next 30 years, and the world's nuclear arsenal is three times the number of tigers left. Should you choose to look at the bleaker side of civilization, it ain't so pretty! Zombie outbreak. Nuclear fallout. Jeff Bezos decides to just officially take over. You know the drill. Create a post-apocalyptic world full of doom, gloom and everything terrible after the big boom.
PROMPT C: No prompt...... but what about a world where people who bought Cyber Trucks were the only ones who survived? Or a world where people discovered that Oreo cookies were the only antidote to the zombie virus? Or a world where Mark Zuckerberg's clones revolted and colonized most of North America? Fine. You come up with your own prompt. But Post-Apocalypse is the theme.
For the new Post-Apocalypse #kb3dcontest, we leave the prompts to you: A) The Positive Prompt B) The Negative Prompt or C) No Prompt At All.
Regardless of which prompt you choose: the world, as we knew it, has ended. What happens next is up to you.
