Remember, in this Chinese Writing Contest, you’re NOT tested for the following:

  • Whether or not you can write these Chinese character following specific stroke orders
  • Whether or not you can match an image to any given Chinese character
  • Whether or not you know the radical of any given Chinese character
  • Whether or not you can translate any given Chinese character or word into a different language

It doesn’t even matter whether you’ve taught yourself Chinese or followed a teacher. 

All that matters is whether or not you can effectively use these Chinese characters to show your readers something beautiful that they’ve not seen before.
