[EDIT June 25]
Scott Westerfeld himself has been kind enough to mention Dalek Week on the westerblog and said he can't wait to feature some of the week's winners in one of his posts!
If anyone is coming here from the blog and is unfamiliar with deviantArt but would like to participate, signing up to the site is easy and becoming a member of the group is even easier If you need any help feel free to leave a comment and one of the founders would be happy to direct you.
That being said, there are only two weeks until Day 1 of Dalek Week! If you haven't even started thinking about what you'd like to draw/write/etc, now would be a good time to start! If you're starting to sketch out some rough drafts or scrawl out some dialogue by now, even better. Best of luck to everyone!

We got some really cool suggestions this year! Hopefully you guys like these themes. Keep in mind that the prompts are completely up for your own interpretation. For example you can interpret the first theme "Parents" as Alek and Deryn being parents or even better, Alek and Deryn's parents. (; This contest is all about originality and creativity so do whatever you think is best!
To get everyone excited, we will be allowing early submissions for the bonus theme "Potatoes". So go ahead and start your potatoes entries started! And remember to put your submissions in the correct "Dalek Week" folder.
