The Felix Awards Season Two -- Nomination Form!
« on: January 16, 2009, 01:01:42 PM »

The nomination period will last for one month! You have until Feb 17, 2009 at midnight EST to send in your noms!

I've taken into consideration feedback from last year's awards, and have redone the categories. In order for a category to make it through the nomination round it must have at least three (3) and no more than six (6) nominees.

Nominations MUST be sent via personal message to "FelixAwards"! Any nominations sent to me, Mare, or Chaos won't be counted. Well, maybe the first time but definitely not the second! :P Please make sure you fill out all of the information, last time many nominations came without links.

Start thinking now if you'd like to be a judge -- application forms will be out soon! Also, don't forget about the 'for your consideration' thread, the only place you can pimp your work!

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.

Do they not have creative names this year? I liked the random names, especially "Keyser Soze Award for best Plot Twist," lol.

Also, if we nominate some now, but haven't thought of ones for others, can we send the others along later?

Absolutely! It's not a one-nomination-form-per-person kind of deal.

And yes, I opted out of creative names just because there are so many additional categories.

Yay, now the names will be funnified. lol

Okay, good, because some of them, I knew exactly what to nominate, and others I wasn't sure.

One more question, sorry if I'm dumb. Is it just that authors can't be nominated with the same story they won a category with last year, or they can't be nominated at all for a category they won last year?

Just the story. So if Mare won for Shadow Woods, she can't win for Shadow Woods again in the same category.

But I was pretty sure Wadow Shoods was just bad pig Latin. ;)

Okay, so you can nominate a different story by the winning author in the same category they won last year then. Great. ;D
