  1. Access the Google form.
  2. Read carefully the instructions at the top.
  3. Fill in all the form fields.
  4. Submit the form.

We’ll contact you by email to let you know which template you’ve been allotted. And then it’s time to get reading! If you have any questions about this, feel free to send an email to

Why should you become a sponsor?

As a sponsor, you’re allowed to judge entries however you want. You could read them all, roll a dice, or cast a divination spell if you’re feeling extra magical! We love our community sponsors, so you can expect shout-outs left and right. Your World Anvil name will appear on the WorldEmber challenge page, next to the template you’re sponsoring. And we’ll make sure to mention (and thank) you during the opening or closing streams, as well as in the big Awards Ceremony! But most importantly, with your judging, you’re giving back to our amazing and supportive community, one of the nicest places on the internet!

So, ready to become a community sponsor? Pick an article template and fill in the form!
