Sure...by original, we mean that the work is your own.
Look at the Gemology Project now.
The work is original and usually contains references.

Example:
You could submit a video you made on amber in your collection.

You can not submit a video on amber you found while surfing YouTube.


:D

Hey Ginge

Great work. Very complete and informative...give the girl a gold star (and maybe a years worth of G&G if no one can beat her)

You've put us all to shame. Come on guys I'm sure more of us can post something...There's more than one prize :D

Oh, correction:
Gingerkid is working on another submission for the contest.

Serendibite was just an article she wrote for GP to add to our collection, it was not meant to be a contest entry.

It's still great though!

I'll have to make sure that I do an ALMOST first-class job... since the only way to get my hands on Bill Hanneman's Guide to Affordable Gemology (until the third edition) is to place second, heh...

Perhaps I'll do a submission on the prehistoric archaeology related to the uses of different gem materials/minerals? Or maybe just beg a copy of the book of someone and write without any ulterior motive :P
