    Default Summer Awards 2014 - The Nominations Begin

    Greetings Workshop, and welcome to the second batch of Awards for this year: our Summer spectacle showcase!

    The sun is about to be shining all over the northern hemisphere and cook you all to death, while winter is about to descend about the southern and freeze us all to the death - so rather than risk the ever changing weather in your region, lets all stay indoors and read some stories instead!

    Of course, in order for there to be an Awards ceremony, we need to have some nominees, so put down the snow shovels and beach balls and lets start the Nomination Process! You have a week (until noon on June 8th NZT) to message me with your nominations. So you know what that entails, please read some brief category blurbs and the more detailed rules below:



    Once the nominations are in place, we will have the Voting Round which will determine the works that make it into the Judging Round. Whatever you do, do not let the thought of this scare you off submitting your work; the voter’s mind is an unpredictable thing, so your story and/or characters could just the right number to let them move on! We only have the voting round cause our lovely judges are either at school/university, on holiday or spend their days quietly weeping in corners over the latest blow to the Fantasy Football teams, so we do not have the time to read every fic that is submitted and we need some help to decide which ones are truly worthy on moving on. However, nearly all the stories in most categories do move on, and those that do get at least two reviews guaranteed so it is worth at least trying! At the same time, do not think that someone else is going to nominate you and wait for that to happen – if you want to be entered, then enter yourself, it is very easy! We want everyone in the Fairground to have the chance to win one of our badges, and the more people that enter the merrier we all shall be!
    And to those that plan on nominating other peoples work, don't waste those six slots on stories that are likely going to be nominated by their writer anyway.

    So get nominating and lets make this one of the best Awards yet :D Follow us on twitter ( @bulbawriters ) for more regular updates on the process!

    Also, if anyone wants to be a Judge, please PM me as we may be down a few this round and can always do with an extra pair of hands!

    Just a handy clarification for everybody: When you nominate, you can nominate a maximum of
    - 4 of your own stories, two per category (eg 1 Journey, 1 Dark, 2 Alternate)
    - 7 of your own characters, two per category (eg 2 protags, 2 antag, 1 supporting, 2 Pokemon)
    - 3 stories written by other people, one per category (eg 1 Journey, 1 Expansion, 1 Non Pokemon)
    - 3 characters written by other people, one per category (eg, 1 Protag, 1 Supporting, 1 Pokemon)
    So that is a total of 17 nominations available to everyone. I hope that makes things clearer :)

    This is more of a request to make things easier for me: I compile all the nominations into a list for the Voting Thread, and it helps for everything to be in the same style. So, if people could set their links out like this: [url=http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/showthread.php?t=155009]The Long Walk[/url ] , it will greatly help me and shall be much appreciated :) You can do it using that globe symbol in between the A and the envelope.

    It has been less than twelve hours and we already have a lot of nominations in so far, so keep up the good work team! There are some categories that are already greatly lacking compared to others, so keep sending your noms in!

    Thanks everybody - hopefully I don't have to keep bothering everybody

    We have hit the usual slump, but there is still time to get those nominations in. We are particularly lacking in the Best Dark category so if you have a story that fits there than submit it!

    In the extended blurbs I posted in the Hall of Fame, it was noted that stories with the Journey element can still go in Dark. For example, my stories Eight Easy Steps and Galactic both follow the battling the gyms format. However, in 8ES, the gym journey is a significant part of the story, while in Galactic, the more important matter is the heroes war against Team Galactic. So if you have a Journey story with subplots or other themes, ask yourself whether the journey or the darker material is more important before submitting.

    Just a reminder that improperly filled out nominations will be ignored

    You have less than 48 hours to get your nominations in! This also means that you have less than 48 hours to post new chapters in order for them to be taken into consideration when judging begins. So get posting, get reading and get nominating!

    You have just over half an hour to send in your nominations or to post chapters for them to be put into consideration. Good luck!
