Right, seriously. Last time this was up it did not do well...so! NEW START! This time, there will be 5 AWARDS PER YEAR, One for each season (spring, summer, autumn, winter) and one at the end of the year! Look for the Summer 2012 nomination thread soon, I know that we didn't get a winner for the 2011 awards so they'll be up soon too! Don't forget to tell your friends!
NOTE: DO NOT POST ANY NOMINATIONS HERE. ANY NOMINATIONS GO IN THE APPROPRIATE THREADS. LINKS WILL BE UP SOON.
-My fiction cannot be voted for. I know, "what fiction have you posted lately Cappie?" Well, just the endless list of "Gah!"'s that polluted the forums at one point...
-Only nominations posted on the appropriate thread will be counted
-You can nominate another fic'r and/or their work as long as it fits the award.
-The same story can be nominated for many awards. Same for writers.
-Only three stories per writer can be up for nomination at any-one time
-It doesn't have to be Fan-Fic to be nominated, looking at you
-Any group fics created also can be nominated!
-If you and another user collaborated, as the case ofand
-You can nominate different writers for the same awards
-Only two people/fics can be nominated for an award per user. So pick carefully!
