After much debate, the mod team here at the Superman Movieverse Fanfiction Awards has decided to not hold the awards this year, since the volume of fic produced over the last year has been so low.

The awards *will* return next year, however, and the 2013 Superman Movieverse Fanfiction Awards will be open to all fic written between June 1st, 2011 and May 31st, 2013, so that nothing gets lost or overlooked. The release of Man of Steel next year should also help bump up the volume of fic, so that we won't have another year with no awards for quite a while.

Thank you to all the writers and readers out there, and here's to lots of good new fic written over the next year. See you all in 2013!

All right, everyone, the results have been tabulated, the banners are made, and here it is at last: the final winners list for the 2011 Superman Movieverse Fanfiction Awards! 

The link to ALL the banners is here, made by the lovely januaried .  Remember to save the images and host them on your own site.  Please do NOT hotlink directly to this folder!  We're trying to keep the bandwidth down so everyone can use the same site. 

Complete List of Winners and NomineesCollapse )


Many thanks to the maintainers of the comm, who put in so much effort this year, and to every one of you who nominated and voted during the awards!

So earlier I posted that the awards would be over tomorrow night at 3 AM Eastern time.  I've since realized that the posted close time of July 14th at 3 AM is actually tonight.  *facepalm* 

We will leave the voting open until 3 AM Eastern time tomorrow night (which, if unlike me you know what day it is, is actually the 15th).

In other words, if you have not yet voted, you have just over 24 hours in which to do so!  Get to the ballot page and cast your vote!
06 July 2011 @ 11:59 am
We would like to offer ALL our wonderful nominees the chance to advertise the success of their fic and encourage their fans to vote with the use of banners. Post the banner on your LJ, on message board posts, or wherever you would like to show off your status as a nominee.

Congratulations to all the nominees and best of luck throughout the voting process!

You will find all banners for nominees at this Photobucket album, organized by theme. Browse through the album and take whichever banner(s) have your name on them. (NOTE: Please right-click/save the banners to your computers, then host them at your own personal online albums. We don't want the bandwidth on this account drained! If you don't have or know of a place to host images, try Photobucket, ImageShack, or TinyPic...they're all free and easy to use! THANKS!)

BALLOT IS NOW OPEN CLOSED. Final Winners will be posted July 15, 2011.


  • Categories have 2-7 nominees

  • Please vote only once per ballot

  • Remember to put your USERNAME and DOMAIN (i.e. anissa7118 at LJ, or saavikam77 at fanfiction.net) on the final question of EACH BALLOT.  Unsigned results WILL NOT BE COUNTED.

  • Refer to the nominated stories list below to catch up on your reading.

  • Authors, unlike during the nominations process, you ARE allowed to vote for your own stories, .

  • Important: Go through this page once you are ready to cast your final vote, as the survey links may need to be updated.

Once again, due to restrictions on the number of questions per survey imposed by the Zoomerang survey service, we had to split the final ballot into 5 parts.  The moderating staff apologizes for any inconvenience.  Remember to enter your username on each of the five ballots, please!

Nominee Banners coming soon!

Thank you to all of you, and good luck!



Winners will be announced on July 15th, 2011

We're experiencing some interesting times here.  Expect the ballot to be open sometime late tonight or early tomorrow morning.
28 June 2011 @ 01:44 am
The deadline has passed, and nominations to the 2011 Superman Movieverse Fanfiction Awards are now CLOSED.

Fortunately, we did receive enough nominations to hold the awards this year.  Watch this comm for links to the survey; the ballot should open in the wee hours of July 1st.
25 June 2011 @ 11:46 pm
Okay, folks, the deadline for nominations is Monday June 27th at 11:59 Eastern time. That's just 2 days left.

So far we have received exactly TWO nomination ballots.  Two.  Each of those was nominating a single fic.  That's not enough to have a fair and balanced awards. 

The community maintainers are trying to make sure we have a complete ballot, but we want YOUR favorite fics nominated.  If you want to see your favorite stories on the ballot, YOU have to nominate them.  Don't just hope that someone else will do it for you - take ten minutes and make some nominations.

The categories in the most desperate need of nominations are:

Best Action
Best Non-Clois Het
Best Villain
Best Original Character
Best Beta

ETA: Last year's winners in these categories are not eligible this year.  Please check the 2010 Winners List before making nominations.
23 June 2011 @ 03:43 pm

This is your friendly reminder that just over 4 days remain to get your nominations in for the 2011 Superman Movieverse Fanfiction Awards! So far, the mod team has received ZERO nominations, outside of feverishly working on our own. If we don't receive any nominations besides our own, then there is a very real possibility that the awards might be canceled this year. And no one wants that!

You don't have to fill in the entire ballot, of course, but please do submit nominations for your favorite works before time runs out. Don't assume that someone else will have done so, and risk either not seeing them on the final ballot, or having the awards canceled altogether.

As usual, collected links to eligible works are HERE. This list has been recently updated with lots of new works, so please do check them out!

For those who would like to help fill out the ballot, and save the awards this year, it's looking like we might be severely lacking in nominations for the following categories:Collapse )

Go forth, and nominate!

Oops, I forgot to put up the graphics links and such.  Here are the ones we have so far, made by the glorious januaried .

Get your codes, banners, and icons HERECollapse )

Now for the request part.  We need more promotional graphics - banners, icons, the works.  The only requirements are that the images relate to the Superman Movieverse and that the graphics have some text about the awards.  For icons, "2011 Superman Movieverse Fanfiction Awards" is all you need.  For banners, we'd prefer that they also have the dates (June 1st through 27th for nominations, July 1st through 14th for voting) and maybe the URL of the awards community. 

Please help us out, graphics makers!  We'd love to see a variety of styles so we can promote the awards all over the place with your awesome image skills.

Last but not least, don't forget to nominate fic for the awards this year!

Here is the place to help compile a list of eligible stories for the 2011 Superman Movieverse Fanfiction Awards.

If your story was written or updated between June 1, 2010 and May 31, 2011, and is set primarily in the Superman movieverse (even AU versions), it is eligible!

Please comment on this thread with the link to your story here, first chapter preferred. If you have a Table of Contents, even better. If we are missing any sites in this list, please also add them in comments.

If you already have a post with your eligible stories listed, please link that instead. This post will be updated with the links as they are received. Thanks!

Finally, please also double check the list of last year's winners before submitting a story.  Remember, no story, scene, or character can win the same award two years in a row.

Sites with Superman Movieverse Fanfiction:
(Note: Authors - if your stories are not showing under these tags, be sure to edit them to include it!)

See comments for eligible stories from individual authors!

There have been a few changes to the rules this year to hopefully make the awards more user-friendly.  Changes will be noted in bold red font.  If you have any questions, please email any of the maintainers of the community for clarification.

Ground Rules:

* Fanfiction written between June 1, 2010 and May 31, 2011 is eligible. For WIPs, at least one chapter of the longer work must have been originally published during the qualifying period.  (We are no longer allowing fic published in June to be eligible for two years' awards.)
* Any story which won an award in any previous year is not eligible for the same award in the current year, regardless of whether newer chapters were published during the qualifying period.  (Final Winners List 2010)
* Any person who won an award in the Best People category in the preceeding year is not eligible for the same award in the current year.  In other words, the Best Author, Best Beta, and Best Reviewer categories cannot be won by the same person in consecutive years.
* You may nominate a different moment of the same fic that won last year's Best Moment Category provided that the moment you are nominating was written during the current year.
* The stories may be hosted anywhere online.
* The main focus of the story must be the Superman Movieverse (not including Smallville, Lois and Clark, comicverse, etc).
* Writers may not nominate their own fanfiction for any category.
* Nominations will be accepted between June 1, 2011and June 27, 2011, 11:59pm EDT.  You may nominate up to 4 fics per category.  It is not necessary to nominate for every category, but it would be appreciated.
* Authors may not compete against themselves in any category.  If more than one of an author's stories are nominated for the same category, the maintainers may contact the author to determine which story goes on the final ballot.
* The top five fics nominated in each category will be placed onto the final ballot. If there are 7 or more fics nominated, at the maintainers' discretion the category will be split into two final categories separated by length.  This will not apply to Length categories.
            - For example, suppose Best Love Scene has 8 nominations.  The fics would be separated by length, and the final ballot would show Best Love Scene (Long) for fics over 5,000 words and Best Love Scene (Short) for fics under 5,000 words.  Actual word count for the break may vary depending on the fics nominated.
* If a runoff ballot is necessary - for Length categories or any other reason - it will take place between June 28, 2011 and June 30, 2011.
* Voting will take place between July 1, 2011 and July 14, 2011 using a non-LJ-affiliated survey service.
* Awards will be announced on July 16, 2011.

Please do not "Join" the community! All participants may nominate and comment on this entry, either using OpenID, LJ username or Anonymous. Instead, LJ users should click "Watch This Community" to stay up-to-date on the nomination and voting process.
