I'm a fairly new member to FanStory and am trying to understand the differences in contests, how they are reviewed and announcements made as to winners. I've entered a couple of contests that winnings are paid as member dollars. These contests appear to be the ones that are voted on by other entrants. Contest voting is announced by "Message" and then winner is also announced through the "Message." Everyone can then see the voting results and how they did.
As for contests with a monetary value (and if I'm understanding correctly), it appears that there are separate judges who review and determine the winner. I have seen on the FanStory home page where winners of these contests are announced; however, I don't see where I could go to view all the entries and the final results. Is there such a way to be able to do this.

There is no place to see all the entries for site contests. Remember, there is no entry fee and the first prize is one hundred real dollars. Must be dozens of entries.
One man's take on life told thru humorous short stories from his childhood on into his mid-50's; from feeling like an outcast in school to being an adult. His intent: hope. Hope in that you shall see, no matter how rough life can seem -and is- at times, that you may be able to enjoy it. Each story will bring a laugh, a smile, a tear, a lesson.

"We Really Need To Laugh" shares “memories which will resonate with many readers. Overall a creative presentation of the author’s life given in a rather sing-song poetic story telling style; a pleasant read"
