- When nominating your own work, you can nominate two stories/characters per category, but there is a limit of four nominations for the story categories and seven nominations for the character categories. When you are nominating someone else's work, you can nominate three stories and three characters and only one per category – this is so people do not just nominate what they will then vote for. If you are nominating your own work, you can still nominate other peoples but put it underneath your nominations.
- A link to each story must be provided just for ease of checking your work. Your entry will be void if you do not submit a link and I will not be reminding you. Any entries which are not properly filled out will be ignored
- Fics that have been updated since February 9th NZ Time are eligible for these Awards. Work updated during this nomination week are allowed but any chapters posted after the Voting Thread is up will not be counted. Any character you nominate should have appeared in a chapter that has been posted during this period.
- You may only nominate your stories in one category: ie, you can't submit 'Generic Journey Story #247' in Best Journey and Best Expansion, only choose one. Do not try and slip your stories/characters into other categories in order to get them in (ie if you have three Journey fics and you try to get one of them nominated under Alternate). If we catch you out the story will be made void and it may hamper for your Awards chances.
- Do not ask people to nominate your work, as there is no point since you can just do it yourself.
