“He leans in, resting his weathered hand on the bed. "Treat all the bad things like dreams, Kenzie. That way, no matter how scary or dark they get, you just have to survive until you wake up.” ― //Victoria Schwab, The Unbound//

The Blackout contest has finally come to an end with the grand prize belong to DeptDept! Thank all the following authors that have joined our contest:


From the earlier times, the SCP Foundation focused itself on horror content. From horrific, dreadful monsters to shady, mysterious stories have always been a part of the SCP Wiki to continue growing. Although this kind of content hasn't been shown much like before, horror is still an exciting topic for the readers/authors.

Aimed to create a new wave of inspiration for the Vietnamese branch, I (KirQKirQ) on behalf of the SCP Foundation Vietnam admins, announce the second contest on the wiki - The Blackout Contest.


As mentioned above, Blackout Contest surrounds the topic of Horror. That being said, let your imagination goes wild.

Note: The contest allows all form of content (SCP, tales, GOI, poems, etc.) around the topic.

  • Be good to each other, seriously.
  • Placing is based on net vote total, in descending order. (not include Malicious Upvoting/Downvoting).
  • The rating will only be calculated by the corresponding number of reviews of entries by the community in Discord, #voting-channel section.

Notice: Voters can cast only one vote for the page they decided to be worthy. Voters may explain their votes to be counted as eligible.

  • Any contestant who takes unusual and/or negative actions to increase their vote total, or decrease that of their competitors, will be disqualified for the involved contest and potentially banned from further contests (and possibly further disciplinary action).
    • Examples of shenanigans include, but are in no way limited to:
      • Downvoting all of your competitors' work within minutes of them being posted
      • Spamming people with PMs about your work
      • Spurring Malicious Upvoting/Downvoting, whether on your work or anyone else's. It should be noted that introducing the article to others is allowed; only calling to vote is prohibited.
    • If you're not sure if something counts as shenanigans, then it probably does, but feel free to ask a staff.
  • Only one entry per user
  • Collaborations are allowed, but that will count as one entry for all participants
  • Contestants are allowed to use pre-existing ideas and drafts, as long as they have never been published on the wiki before.
  • Articles that plagiarize ideas, are reactionary, anti-sabotage, violate the law and promote violations of the law of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam are strictly prohibited.
  • Edits to works are allowed.
  • The Deletion Process are still applied to entries.
  • All Contest Marshals have the ability to disqualify entries for violations of the above-listed rules, egregiously poor sportsmanship not otherwise enumerated, or failure to fit the theme. All decisions are appealable to KirQKirQ.

Notice: SCPFoundationVietnamSCPFoundationVietnam site administration will remove unqualified articles before they can be voted on the wiki's Discord server. Therefore, participants should take the contest seriously.


Readers can vote by entering the Discord server, searching for the channel #voting and cast their vote.

Note: Each reader is only allowed to vote for one favorite entry, and must state their reason for liking the work. Improper reasons will be disregarded.
