Hey guys! Heres the rules n regulations for this here award community. If anyone has any queries just contact either myself or my co-mod
~~ The set up ~~
++ In an effort to keep the judging as fair as possible, everything is kept anonymous. The judges will not know whose fics or pics theyre judging, and will also hopefully not know who else is judging what. The complete list of judges is posted HERE.
++ The nominations will be sent to the judges in a word doc, with the writer/artist name removed, along with anything that could be a 'clue' such as beta names, or non fic related authors notes.
++ Each entry will be judged using a rating system of one to 5 for a selection of skill ratings listed HERE. If more than one judge is judging that category, the average of all of them will be used.
~~ Category Rules ~~
++ Every nomination must have spike as one of the main characters. If youre not sure whether a piece is elligeble, just ask one of us mods. :)
++ Each category will have a maximum of 6 entries, a minimum of 4. Any less than that and it will be carried forward to the next round.
++ One winner and one runner up will receive a prize for each category, unless otherwise stated.
++ Any categories that do not state a specific pairing or rating are open to all variations.
~~ Nomination Rules ~~
++ Each writer/artist can be nominated only once per category.
++ Each fic/artwork can be nominated a maximum of twice in the whole round.
++ The writer/artist has no limit on nomination number per round, provided different fics/artworks are used so as to comply with the above rules.
eg: a fic can be nommed twice max in the round; the writer can be nommed once per category.
++ Self nominations are perfectly fine, as long as the above rules are obeyed.
++ Judges can not nominate, or be nominated for the categories theyre judging for, but can be in any other category.
++ Drabbles can only be nominated in the drabble category - Bag O' Blood.
++ WIP's can be nominated in every category except when otherwise stated [eg Finished Fics]. Bare in mind though that they will likely be competing against some finished fics, so there must be a significant amount of the wip written to stand a fair chance.
++ Verses, ie groups of related fics, can not be nominated as a bunch in one category, only as individual fics.
++ Nominations will only be accepted through the form set up HERE. One form must be filled out per nomination, with the option of placing them in one or two categories. If the form doesnt work for you do let us know asap.
++ Nominees will be notified by email and are welcome to take a nomination button of their choice from HERE. [the nominator's identity will not be divulged].
I hope all that makes sense, if anyone has any problems just let me know.
