-- Eligible stories include those written (or completed) between November, 2004, and April, 2012, and the stories must be finished/completed.
-- As tempting as it is, please find work other than your own to nominate.
-- Please don't inundate the awards with your favorite author by placing all their stories in each category. Really focus on great stories that fit the category – there are some really well known authors out there that deserve recognition – but there are also some newer authors that deserve it too.
--You can nominate one story for each category.
-- An author can have more than one story nominated as long as it isn't in the same category (Ex: JaneSmith has a story nominated in Chapter Fics and in Oneshots– that is fine – JaneSmith can't have two stories in Chapter Fics)
-- If someone nominates an author for a category that they already have a nomination in, the author must choose which story they want to be in the category.
-- All categories are open to any rating and any style.
-- Nominated authors will receive a comment at their LJ notifying them of their nomination.
-- Authors that have been nominated but do not want to participate can have their stories pulled – just send a PM to the moderators directly.
