The day is finally here. Nominations are open for the 2016 You Want Blood Awards. I have adjusted the dates for this year only so dates are from April 15, 2015 to August 1, 2016 (this allows for when the awards would have started earlier.) Below is a reminder of the rules for this year. Category descriptions are also on the survey. Nominations will close on August 31, 2016.
All fanfictions completed in the past year April 15, 2015 may be submitted for consideration. A WIP (work in progress) must have been updated within the year dates will be provided each year.
Every nomination will result in a spot on the Semi Final voting poll which will run for 4 weeks. This will give people time to read as many nominations as they wish before voting closes. The Top 10 nominations from each category will then move onto the Finals voting poll for a two week voting period.
Everyone is eligible for nominations and will be posted as a nominee as long as the nomination complies with the category requirements listed on a category page.
You may nominate as many different authors, fics and artists as you wish for each category. There is no limit. As long as they meet the category requirements.
To celebrate all of our hardworking authors and artists. The same story cannot win a category twice. For example, if Bored to Death were to win The Best of the Best (favorite fic of all time), it cannot be nominated for that category again. Only 1st place winners from previous years will be ineligible.
All nominees that are posted on fanfiction.net will be added here. YWBA Fanfiction Community
I will post all story links for nominations on the following page. Nomination summaries and links
For stories that are only on blogs I will create a page where summaries and links are provided.
