Welcome back! It's time to nominate your favourites for the Felix Awards 2011!

Please read this carefully...

The nomination period will last for one month! You have until November 29, 2011 at 12:00am EDT to send in your noms!

In order for a category to make it through the nomination round it must have at least three (3) nominees to a maximum of (10) ten, and be either complete or close to complete!

Nominations MUST be sent via personal message to "FelixAwards"! (that's this account.) Any nominations sent to Julilly, Mare, or Chaos won't be counted. Well, maybe the first time but definitely not the second! Please make sure you fill out all of the information, last time many nominations came without links and we will not search for the story for you! If it comes without links, it’s going in the virtual recycle bin.
 
YOU MAY NOT NOMINATE YOURSELF! Also, don't think you can make a fake account to try and do it either, new accounts must be mod approved and we can see if you're using the same computer as another account.

Things will be going a little different this year. Again, the awards will be 'Reader's Choice' so you will get a chance to vote on the winners. But we wanted to focus a bit more this year on the writer and not just the story.

You will be able to nominate for two different types of genre-based awards; story and author. (They don't have to be the same person, you can choose a story by one person and still say overall your fav author in that genre is someone else.)

Lastly, take a look at the winners from the past three years before you nominate a story. If an author has already won an award in that category for the same fic, they cannot be nominated again! You can only win one time in one category.

PS - If you don't fill out a category you don't need to send it back to us. Just send along the ones you're filling out.

For example... a nomination form might look like this:
Action/Adventure
Fic: Action Jackson takes Manhatten by Gidget (www.thisisthel inktothestory. com)
Author: MarlaMay (www.marlamaysp rofilepage.com )

Question: Is there going to be a cap on how many nominations a person and/or story can recieve for one category. Last year 1 author had 3 out of 4 noms in one category. They were almost guaranteed a win but the author won.

I would think it really doesn't matter because it's the readers who are nominating and just like the Emmys where everyone but one person from one TV show can get nominated, that other person can still win? I think with the way the categories are set up, there will be more of a choice for each category then years past so I don't really see it as being that big of an issue.

I'll discuss it with Julilly and get back to you on that though.

As to the issue of authors being nominated multiple times in the same category, I've always thought that when it's voted on, that actually hurts the author's chance of winning because it splits their votes.  If their readers/fans can only vote once, which story do they vote for?  If that author has SO many readers that their votes split four ways is still more than the other person gets, they would win anyway, regardless of how many times they were nominated.  So Krystle, I wouldn't worry about it.  Mare has a good point about the Emmys being set up the same way.

Yay! The nominations started when I was not around, but I still have 29 days to nominate. And filling out a nomination form is on the top of my to do list today! Smiley

Just a clarifications .... so there would be no Best Author and Best new author this year? Just like what Julie won last year...
