1) People are too busy around a holiday to get things like a contest entry done, so now that the holiday's over you'll have time to work on your entry!
B) Valentine's Day has passed, so you can use the happy vibes from your own celebration as inspiration for your story and photo!
3) Valentine's Day has passed, so your rage and animosity towards the holiday will start to simmer down, therefore the idea of creating pony love story will touch down smoother on the palate!
The prize is a gorgeous little Twice As Fancy Milky Way G1 MLP! Details and examples to follow tomorrow!
