    Default The 2013 Summer Awards Winner's List!

    Hello Workshop!

    It seems like months since the first Summer Awards thread went up, and since then the Northern Hemisphere has quickly begun its annual celebration of beating temperature records and the Southern hemisphere has begun to freeze to death as the snow engulfs us all, but now, after all this time, I am very pleased to give you the results of the 2013 Summer Awards!

    I am very pleased with the new systems instigated this round, allowing for less popular fics to get recognised through the self nomination, a tidier set of nominees moving on, and the judging was tidied up as well to ensure only the top fics went through. For our next Awards there will be some new change to allow people without their own stories to get involved in the nomination process, as we must value our readers as well as our writers, but more on that next time!

    I will just quickly say that I was overwhelmed with the quality of the stories, some of the best I have had the pleasure of reading yet! I hope that this trend continues for the rest of the Awards to come.

    But, without any further ado, I am very pleased to give to you the winners of the 2013 Fiction Fairground Summer Awards!

    Best Journey Fic – Judged by @Soulmaster @Flaze @Kyuuketsuki


    Best Dark Fic - Judged by @LightningTopaz @AetherX @Princess Crow


    Best Expansion Fic - Judged by @Caitlin @harryheart @nicolem_animefan


    Best Crossover/Non Pokemon Fic - Judged by @AceTrainer14 @Pokemaster97


    Best Alternate Fic - Judged by @AceTrainer14 @PokePal15 @AetherX


    All Character nominees were judged individually by those reading that story
    Best Protagonist


    Best Antagonist


    Best Supporting Character


    And now, the biggies, the ones that get y’all hot under the collar!
    BEST CHARACTER:


    BEST STORY:


    Thank you to everyone of our amazing judges! They put in more hard work than ever this time, reading more fics than ever before in order to guarantee fair judging across the board. They were absolutely brilliant, so a big round of applause for them! You have a right to ask the judges for feedback on your work, but give them a two week period before you start harassing them to let them post their views themselves. Also, a big thank you to harryheart for his tireless work on the banners! I wanted two Pokemon to represent Spring and Summer due to the former being scrapped as an Awards period, and harry was an expert at following my bizarre instructions so top points for him!

    And least we forget the user voted Awards! Thank you to everyone that voted – sadly, not as many people as I would have liked did, but I am sure that can be corrected next time, and deserving people still won!

    Best Reviewer


    Best Newcomer



    Congratulations to everyone of the winners and to all the judges for their fantastic work! This has been all worth the long hours reading away and ignoring my own work, and I hope that next time we get even more entries!

    Oh, FE: DoD DID win! :D

    I actually had a feeling it might lose. But WOOT, I got the award again! Kyuu, I really thought you might win it, seriously. But don't worry, you got BEST STORY, dude! So in a way, you still beat me! You should be proud!

    Oh, but there's a typo on my banner. Kelleo has two Ls, not one. lol

    But congrats to all the winners! :D

    Congratulations to all the winners, there were some great stories this time. Many of the awards came out of close contention.

    Hopefully I'll have my reviews out in the next few weeks (I did Galactic, Plasma's Folly, The Story Of Fritz Westmyn, and Pokemon Academy).

    I was very shocked to win myself, especially as I haven't won in a story category for quite a while now! But I am very pleased to see Eight Easy Steps see some recognition, and for Alaska to win Best Character again was wonderful :D

    Also, once the banner typo is fixed I will post them all to the Hall of Fame and I shall tally up how many badges people have now and post the list in the first post of the HoF so people can keep track :)

    I really didn't expect to win, but I'm glad to see that I did! And with a story so dear to me; The Barefoot, Fighting Genius! is the story I tried to perfect the most, and this may come across as arrogant, but I can't help but feel relief that it wasn't all in vain.

    Of course, that isn't to say that any other story is of a lesser quality, or doesn't deserve to win; The Barefoot, Fighting Genius! has been going on since 2011, so I'm sure one of you will kick me down from my throne in the next awards, but until then, I fully plan on gloating and ruling with an iron fist!

    Congratulations to the winners!!! And to everyone else who participated as well. I really enjoyed reading through a lot of stories during the voting period, so you should all be proud of yourselves for publishing your brilliant works :) Hopefully some day soon I'll be able to post one of my own stories xDD

    Congratulations to everyone who won! :D And to those who entered, too! There were a lot of great stories this summer (lol though this is my first time entering the fiction fairground) and it was super fun to judge! I found myself reading a lot of stories out of my judging category - I am just simply amazed at the talent here! Everyone deserves to be a winner!

    When I saw this topic and noticed that I hadn't received a notification, I begrudgingly accepted that I had lost and went to check who had won in my place... I was in for a surprise when I found that my name simply hadn't been tagged, haha. Well, this really means a lot to me! It feels so good to receive some recognition for all the effort I've put into my story. Congratulations to all the other winners, and I'm sure everyone who participated did a great job!
