Legacy of Power: Hope For The World
Well, its that time again! Hope for the World Fanfiction Awards are officially under way (well, the pre-nominating process is anyway).
Dates to Remember:
May 1, 2008: Nominations Begin
May 31, 2008: Nominations end at 11:59pm RMT (1:59am EST).
June 1, 2008: Nominee’s announced; Voting Opens
June 30, 2008: Voting Ends at 11:59pm RMT (1:59am EST)
July 1, 2008: Winners Announced
If you’ve been around for the past two years, you can probably see that something is off. This summer is going to be more hectic for me than usual given my summer plans. Therefore, the nomination and voting periods have been cut in half. You get one month to nominate and one month to vote instead of the two months we had in the past.
1) You cannot nominate your own fic.
2) You may only nominate one fic for every category.
3) All fics must be accompanied by a link to the fic. If a fic is nominated without a link to it, that nomination will be discarded.
4) All fics must have been published or updated within the last two years. No fics that have been published/last updated before January 1st, 2006 will be accepted.
5) All nominations are to be made in comments on this post or emailed to me by 11:59pm (RMT) on May 1, 2008. If emailing your nominations, please put "NYMVA Nominations" in the subject line.
This year we do not have a set maximum on how many fics can be nominated for a category. However, we do have a minimum—any category with 1 or less nominees will not be voted upon.
Last year I inquired about keeping the season categories or keeping them. You said to keep them so we are. However, I have decided to add 9 more general categories this year. New categories have a star next to them.
