Ok folks, just 2 hours to go before I open nominations.
Please, when voting for either Best Author or Best New Author, include a story in your nomination. So the form should include your name, your email, authors name, authors contact AND a story link. Then you should check either best author or best new author AND a category for the story.
If you don’t include all of this information, your nomination won’t be included.
Please, rest assured that there is one person that sees all this information. I do not share, sell, lend, air write or give out this information in ANY way, shape or form. Whatever you send me is private and confidential.
As always, authors, your public thanks can be sent to me via email with your pen name and I will include it on the relevant page.
Round two will open on sunday, in the early hours of the morning GMT. Please take these moments to have a look at the new categories and the rules surrounding them. If you have ANY questions at all, feel free to ask either via email email@example.com or via twitter @RizzlesFanfic and I will do my best to clear up any concerns or queries asap.
Also, there were quite a few nominations last round that I had to chase up, either missing links, no author contact etc. I will NOT do that this round. I will NOT include a story without the author’s contact info, be it twitter or email as I feel people have the right to choose if their work is included. I don’t mean to sound harsh but this is a lot of work for one person to do alone and its made harder when you don’t read the rules and I waste sometimes hours, trying to get the information that should be on the form. Simple mistakes are fine, if you make a booboo or realise that the link doesn’t work or you’ve given me the wrong link, please email me directly with your name and the correct link and I can then amend your submission.
I’m not a horrible person and will do my very best to make these as successful and inclusive as possible so if you need anything or have anything you want to say or clarify, please feel free to contact me. Unless you’re a spambot trying to sell me viagra, watches or a timeshare.
Good Luck everyone, I can’t wait to see what you have in store for me this round.
Ok, you have just 2 short hours to vote for your favourite stories, authors and fan art!
At this stage I would like to open the floor up for your opinions. Would you like to see a 2nd round of these awards? If you would, would you like it to end BEFORE the 3rd Season airs, to coincide with the airing of the third season or to open on the day of the 3rd season finale?! I know thats a LOT of options. Please email or tweet me your thoughts, you can find me on twitter @RizzlesFanfic or through email firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, I teased you a little with news of a guest judge!! As voting is now drawing to a close, I’m pleased to announce our guest judge…..
the wonderful Tess Gerritsen and all the people at tessgerritsen.com have come together to judge the Best Video category. As a thank you to them, you will notice the award for Best Video is different to the others.
All the very best of luck to everyone who has been nominated and I’d like to thank you ALL for your support and for making this first round a HUGE success. It’s been a lot of work, and we’ve had a few hiccups along the way but when alls said and done, I think this has been a huge success and I’m really looking forward to hearing your thoughts on how we can make round 2 so much better!!
I will be closing the nominations at Midnight GMT on January 31st. There will be no exceptions, the form will be gone.
Voting will open on 7th feb* once I’ve checked through all the nominations and ensured they’re all in the right place.
I have had requests from some authors asking if I will put up a thank you page so that they may thank the people that nominated them. I will be doing this once voting is closed so if you have a story, video or image nominated and want to thank the people that put you in the mix, please email me your message along with the penname you have been nominated under and I will add you onto the thank you page.
I will not accept these messages through any other media than email to email@example.com
If you have any questions please contact me via twitter (@RizzlesFanfic) or email.
