Fanfiction only - no other medium considered for these awards.

You can only nominate 1 STORY per CATEGORY per SHIP. A story CAN be nominated in multiple Categories (in other words, the same story can be nominated for Best Romance, Best Smut, and Best Comedy, for instance, if you want), but you only get to fill the slot for that Category with ONE nomination. If you need examples, please see this post (scroll down).


Would a fic submitted to a fest in which the reveal to readers was on April 29th, 2013, qualify?
Yes, it qualifies. We simply put in "ANONYMOUS" for the author's name. When it's revealed, we change it to the actual writer's name.
Another question: do we need to provide a link for a nominated story?
