Whether you're making a new guide from scratch or updating your masterpiece for the current patch, there are lots of chances to win!

Two honorable mentions will also be chosen for each category - authors that did an awesome job but didn't quite make it to the top will also be rewarded. We appreciate all great guides and the time and effort that has been invested into their creation!

We’ll send out emails to all the winners after the judging period is concluded asking for your payment information. You're free to select alternatives in case you cannot receive monetary payments (RP Codes, Steam Wallets, etc.).

In addition to the prizes above, each winner will also receive a special badge for their profile. There is a unique badge for each category of the contest. Each badge will be linked to the author's winning guide so other users can more easily appreciate their achievement!


Contest Categories
For each category, one winner will be an updated guide created before this post, one winner will be a new guide created after this post, the third winner can be either a new or updated guide, and two honorable mentions.

Unbreakable (3 Winners & 2 Honorable Mentions)
1 Winner for Best Updated Guide
1 Winner for Best NEW Guide
1 Winner for either a NEW or Updated Guide
2 Honorable Mentions
Judge: I Am Goliath
Teach your readers how to crush their opponents in top lane. How should your champion play out the early laning phase? Which early game items are most suitable for surviving tough matchups or dominating easy ones? How should your champion look to control the minion wave to maximize their success in the early game? Show your readers how to roam, use Teleport or split-push successfully. A detailed matchups section is always a great addition as well!

Ready to Reap (3 Winners & 2 Honorable Mentions)
1 Winner for Best Updated Guide
1 Winner for Best NEW Guide
1 Winner for either a NEW or Updated Guide
2 Honorable Mentions
Judge: PsiGuard
A good jungle guide explains not only the build, but the playstyle as well. Does your champion shine early with aggressive invades and frequent ganks, or should your readers adopt a more conservative playstyle and farm efficiently? What’s the best way to gank with this champion, and which lane can they gank most effectively? When does your champion reach its strongest point in the game and how can a good jungler capitalize on that power spike?

You're Out of Your League (3 Winners & 2 Honorable Mentions)
1 Winner for Best Updated Guide
1 Winner for Best NEW Guide
1 Winner for either a NEW or Updated Guide
2 Honorable Mentions
Judge: Yeager
The middle lane is the key to map control. Whether you’re a mage, assassin or marksman, timely pushes, roams and freezes are key to a successful laning phase. If your champion has a variety of ability combos available to them, teach your readers how to make the most of their kit. If your champion has a key skillshot, defensive ability or ultimate, tell readers when and how to use that ability to its fullest potential. Whether you’re a diver or a backline carry, team fighting is also an important aspect of mid lane, so be sure to prepare your readers for 5v5 brawls.

You're Outgunned (3 Winners & 2 Honorable Mentions)
1 Winner for Best Updated Guide
1 Winner for Best NEW Guide
1 Winner for either a NEW or Updated Guide
2 Honorable Mentions
Judge: Vicious Skittle
Success in the bottom lane is a team effort, but you can always teach prospective bot lane carries how to succeed at every stage of the game. While this role is usually occupied by marksmen (or “AD carries”), judges will consider all champions for the bot lane role. Be sure to cover how to make best use of the key abilities of your champion, as well as teaching your readers how to position optimally in fights. After all, a dead carry is a useless carry!

I'll Get Us Through This (3 Winners & 2 Honorable Mentions)
1 Winner for Best Updated Guide
1 Winner for Best NEW Guide
1 Winner for either a NEW or Updated Guide
2 Honorable Mentions
Judge: Jovy
Supports can fulfill a variety of purposes: sustain, peel, disruption, pick potential, roaming, or even pure damage! Whatever kind of support you are, explain what your champion excels at in the early game, as well as their key weaknesses. Vision control is also a key aspect of this role, so any information on ward placement is a welcome bonus. A great support guide gives players the tools to succeed individually as well as set their teammates up for success.

Artistic flair is an achievement in itself. Many guides are presentable, but only a select few really stand out from the crowd. This category is for the author (or coder) with the best-looking presentation, formatting and graphics. To claim this prize, you'll need to impress our judges with fantastic visuals and clean presentation. A cohesive visual theme is always a great plus, whether it's a simple color scheme or stylized graphics that match a champion or skin.

Believe In Our Future (3 Winners & 2 Honorable Mentions)
1 Winner for Best Updated Guide

Judge: PsiGuard
The Revival category is returning for this contest! All guides for the 16 champions shown on the left are eligible to win this category. Each of these champions is in need of some fresh new guides, so this category is designed to reward those authors who help fill that need by creating new guide content for the champions listed. Simply create or update a guide for one of the champions on the left and you'll have a chance to win this category!

General Guides (3 Winners)
1 Winner for Best Updated Guide
1 Winner for Best NEW Guide
1 Winner for either a NEW or Updated Guide
Judge: PsiGuard
Mastering your favorite champions is the go-to way to win matches and increase your rank. However, in order to win consistently you must also train your mechanical skills, decision-making and game-reading abilities to perfection. These skills are developed after hundreds and even thousands of matches, but the time will be certainly shortened by a guide that's on point. If you're not too hyped about these aspects, remember that Teamfight Tactics also has its own complexity and there are players looking for guides! ;)

Remember, you do not have to rush your guide-writing. We want you guys to take your time and put in your best effort. You will have 30 days from the start of the contest. All eligible guides at the cutoff date will be reviewed by our panel of judges, and the winners selected. Remember, if parts of your guide are outdated your guide may be disqualified, so be sure to be thorough!

Judges
We have a hand-picked team of judges this year, including some prolific guide authors. Since judges can't win any category of the contest, now's your best chance to secure a spot in the standings while these guide giants are out of the running! All judges have reached a top rank of at least Diamond III.
