    Default Writer's Workshop Spring Awards 2012 Nominations Thread



    Welcome one and all to the Writer’s Workshop Spring Awards 2012!

    These Awards are going to work largely the same as the Winter Awards. If you weren’t here for the Winter Awards, or you just need a reminder of how things go, be sure to read the “RULES” tab below.

    THE RULES:


    THE CATEGORIES:


    Judging: We’ve decided to simplify the process for becoming a non-staff judge, as we want to encourage more people to play an active role in the Awards! If you are interested, just send me a PM with a quick sentence explaining why. You might want to include information on any current fics you have, how often you review, and such like, but none of this is a prerequisite for becoming a judge.

    Best of luck to everyone!

    Is there a certain range of time in which the fic would have to have been updated in order to be eligible for nomination?

    Yes, there is, but I missed this out in the OP. Thanks for spotting. The fic has to have been updated since the last awards season - that's a standing rule. The last awards were in January... this rule is a little liberal (so, if something was updated any time in January, we'll probably let it fly - December won't, though.)

    There was also an error on Best Newcomer which I have now fixed - that being that the user in question has to have become active in the Writer's Workshop since the last awards season. (They can have been active on other parts of the forums before that.)

    Yes, but you won't be judging the categories that you are nominated for. If you are nominated in every category, you will not be able to judge.

    Hu-uh...all the people or stories I was going to nominate have already been nominated...well, no sense being repetitive, I suppose. Good luck to everyone, then!
