Previous Competitions


"It's best that writers stick to the official canon regarding Lara, which, for example, can be found at Wikipedia or Wiki Raider. There is no particular competition theme so you can write about whatever you like, and you can include any character from the Tomb Raider games, books, films or comics - you don't even have to include Lara in your story if you don't want to! However entries may lose marks if they stray too far from the Tomb Raider universe, whilst sex and swear words of a sexual nature are probably best avoided. We welcome stories not only from the more established TR writers but also from newbies. There is no age limit, but no allowance will be made for age when stories are being judged. The story can either be an original piece of work or a story published elsewhere, but please enter only one story per author. Easy peasy."
