Register to Compete in the Gauntlet

To enter, simply fill out the contact form below, declaring your intentions to be a Gauntleteer this year. You will need the username you create here and the password that will be emailed to you, in order to access the Gauntlet forums and submission form for each round, so make sure you don’t lose your information! And as always, never share your password with anyone.

Sign-Ups for 2022 are now closed

Sign-ups to compete in the Gauntlet are now closed. If you’d just like to observe and take part in our forums, check out the Spectator Sign-Up.

Spectators are not Gauntleteers. They cannot submit entries and cannot compete. They can, however, cheer on and interact with the judges and Gauntleteers.

Before you commit to this thing, have you already registered? Click Here to Log In Now. Also, have you checked out our Guidelines? Do you know what we’re about? Are you wondering why there’s no submit button? Just so we know where you’re at, have you selected “Yes” to both our conditions?


We just gotta talk about your Password before you go. Your password is for your eyes only. It is a unique snowflake that was made just for you and only you should have it. Your password can be changed once your account is created, but no matter what, don’t share your password with anyone. Administrators and Gauntlet Judges never need your password and would never ask you for it. Seriously, don’t tell anyone your password.

Sorry. This form is no longer available.

Know someone who might be interested? Want to be a spectator? Good at spreading the word?

Hey, did you know you can kick back and watch the Gauntlet unfold rather than participate? If you want to spread the word about our annual indie competition, that's cool with us, too. You can size up the competition for next year, or, if you know someone who’d be right at home being a Gauntleteer, we’ve set up some convenient ways to signal boost WYRM’s Gauntlet.

If you want to register as just a Spectator, you can do so using the same form. Just make sure to select “Spectator” from the options. Spectators are granted access to post in the smackdown arena known as the Gauntlet forums.
