We took a poll. We talked the results among ourselves. We found a compromise.

Here are the changes for the 2014 Awards year:

1. We are adding the following Category to Gen Fic nomintions/voting only:

  • Best Adventure-Mystery

2. We are eliminating the following Categories:

  • Best Threesome/Moresome

3. We are changing some of the Ships/Groups. Here is the new list:

Does that mean that Drarry now belongs in rare pairs?

We fixed that glaring mistake by putting Drarry in Spring/Summer Round in its own Group. Thank you for letting us know about this.

How great! Now we can nominated older character fics in every round, either as Hogwarts staff or as Rare Pairs.

Thank you so much for all the work and for taking our comments into account.

Thanks! We're pleased with the new format, too. It was a lot of back and forth between us on the committee, but we think the new Ships/Groups and Category changes make a lot more sense to the way people nominate and vote in the awards. We want the fans to participate (to write more fic, to nominate more fic, and to vote) and we hope this new format this year will encourage that.
