About this Challenge

TikTok has taken over—the social media world, and IRL. Getting onto the “For You” page quickly became everyone’s quarantine goal, and this certainly didn’t stop once quarantine did. But with such a huge volume of content to go through on TikTok, we’re sure that we missed some awesome posts that should’ve gone viral. So, we want your help in giving these overlooked TikToks the attention they deserve.

Is there a TikTok you saw—or even one you made yourself!—that you’re obsessed with, or wish more people had seen, or believe deserved to go viral? We want to hear why you loved these so much. Enter the For You Challenge and embed the TikTok you want to highlight. Then, tell us what about it makes it so great, and why you think it may have been overlooked in the first place.

Requirements

For your story to be eligible, it must be between 600 and 5,000 words and adhere to our Community Guidelines. Stories published on Vocal and entered into the contest up until September 3, 2020, at 11:59 PM EST will be entered for consideration. Official Rules for the Challenge can be found here.

The For You Challenge is exclusive to Vocal+ members. To learn more and upgrade to Vocal+ visit https://vocal.media/vocal-plus.

To be eligible to win the grand prize, second place, or third place prizes, you must be over the age of 13 and residing in a country where Stripe is available at the time of entry. A complete list of countries where Stripe is available can be found here—winners will need to have a Stripe account created and connected in order to receive the prizes. For this reason, entrants located outside of any of these 39 countries will not be eligible to win.

    How Challenges Are Judged

    How Challenges Are Judged

    There’s no one right way to tell a story. Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes, and we want to see what yours looks like. Challenges are meant to inspire this creativity, and we want to see you tell a story that’s unique and authentic to you—but there are just a few things we look for across the board to be sure we’re judging every entry consistently and fairly.
