Welcome to the new Epics Contest Collection topic! Since old forum links no longer work, please be warned that these are basic records only. Most of the contest data from the old forum has been permanently lost since the time this topic was first created.

 

Please DO NOT ask when the next library contest is going to be. Many contests require brand new epics, so the staff do not wish to share contest dates and details until the topic is posted.
