March Match-up 2016 – FINAL ROUND! (Round 5)


march round 5

It’s time for the last round of this year’s March Match-up!

We would like to encourage you ALL to take place in the final round, even if you were not one of our 2 finalists. We’re looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

For those of who who aren’t familiar – our March Match-up contest is a month-long promotion similar to March Madness. EVERYONE is eligible to enter round 1. However, only 16 people will be picked to move on to round 2. When round 2 starts, a new writing prompt will be released and ONLY those 8 winners will be eligible to compete in round 3, and so on.

Without further ado, here’s our FINAL Prompt. Good luck to our two remaining FIGGIES!


In 1,000 words or fewer, create a short story including the dialogue: “It really isn’t normal to have to be plugged into a wall charger at night.” You have until 11:59 p.m. ET on Thursday, March 31st to enter your story. You CAN submit multiple stories but you can ONLY win once. We’ll simply pick the best of your best. 😉


One (1) winner will be chosen to not only win a cool Figment-branded item to be sent to you but will also win a gift card and will be one of our newest FEATURED FIGS! Make sure you’re following us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr for the latest updates and good luck!
