2019 Fan Fiction Awards - NOMINATIONS

Discussion in 'Fan Fiction' started by The Great Butler, Jan 1, 2020.

    The 2019 Serebii.net Forums Fan Fiction Awards
    Hosted by bobandbill and The Great Butler
    Voting system, tech wizardry and site hosting by Dragonfree

    As we head into a new decade with the beginning of 2020, it's time to bid farewell to the 2010s with a celebration of the greatest our fanfiction community brought us in 2019!

    While there has been a shift in the hosting team this year, as you can see above, the nominations and voting will still take place on the Serebii Fanfiction Awards website.

    The Rules:

    - The nomination phase of the awards lasts from January 1st, 2020, 00:00 UTC to February 13th, 2020, 23:59 UTC. If necessary due to low nomination totals, an extension to February 26th, 2020, 23:59 UTC will be given.

    - Any member of the Serebii.net forums may nominate for the Fanfiction Awards. Nominations should be submitted through the special 2019 Fanfiction Awards website, located here; to nominate, go here. You will have to verify that you control a Serebii.net forums account in order to nominate or vote, either through an automated process involving editing your user profile or by PMing Dragonfree here on the forums. Further instructions can be found on the site.

    - Broadly, anything posted in the Fan Fiction, Completed Fics or Non-Pokémon Fics forums in 2018, defined as the period from January 1st, 2019, 00:00 UTC to December 31st, 2019, 23:59 UTC according to the forum's post timestamps, is eligible for nomination. Specifically, for the "Fic Moments" awards, the nominated moment should be from an installment posted in 2019; for more general story awards, at least one installment of it must have been posted in 2019; and for author/reviewer awards, the member in question must have posted at least one fic/review in 2019. The site will automatically enforce this as far as possible.

    - When nominating, you may place up to two nominations in each category. You must nominate at least four different authors or their works in all. You may not nominate the same story more than five times total, or the same author more than six times total. Additionally, you may not nominate yourself or your own works in any category. The awards site enforces these limits automatically.

    - Asking other people to nominate your work is not allowed. It is up to your readers to decide whether they want to nominate you. The same goes for applying implicit pressure to nominate you (e.g. messaging your friends about how the awards are going on and linking to your fics, without saying in so many words that you want them to nominate you). You may call attention to the awards and encourage people to nominate their favorite fics in general, to boost participation, but attaching advertisements for your particular work to any such post is not appropriate. Failure to conform to these guidelines may result in disqualification from this year's awards.

    Any questions, discussions of the nomination process and any necessary bug reports for the awards site are welcome in this thread.
