Announcing: SFAR’s End of Summer 2012 Story Contest

Today we are launching our second official SFAR End of Summer Story Contest. From now through September 3 we are asking you to submit new and funny stories that could win you a sweet prize.

Submission topics can be anything related to relationships, dating, hook-ups, mishaps and can be in the form of stories, pictures, videos, screenshots, or anything that made you say “I am single for a reason!” Whether you’re a guy or girl, gay or straight, we want your best content!

Every story submitted by September 3 (Labor Day in the US) will be considered for the grand prize. To read last year’s winning tale, click here.

Why are you launching a contest? Summer is one of our favorite times of year, and as it comes to a close we want to celebrate the fun, embarrassing, regrettable times that have been had by singles this season. Also, of course, we love any opportunity for our readers to share their stories AND get a chance to acquire some sweet SFAR swag.

Is there a prize? Of course there’s a prize! The writer of the most popular story will win an SFAR tote bag full of SFAR branded goodies, as well as a $50 iTunes gift card, Chicoyoto bracelet, and other surprises.

How do I submit? Submissions can be sent to

Can I submit more than once? Yes, you can submit as much content as you want!

Will my story be anonymous? Absolutely. As with all user-submitted content on SFAR, your stories will be edited for grammar and posted anonymously to the blog. The only people who will be aware of your identity, should you win, are the blogs’ editors, who will be mailing you your prize. It goes without saying that your privacy is of utmost importance and your identity will not be shared with anyone.

How do I know if I win? The winner of the contest will be determined by the amount of conversation and engagement it receives from readers. This means the post with the most Facebook likes, comments, and tweets about it will be declared the winner!

We can’t wait to read your stories!
