Nominations for 2008 Awards are now open!  

Let the second annual Superman Movieverse Fanfiction Awards get underway! Here are the ground rules:

  • Fanfiction written between June 2007 and June 2008 is eligible. For WIPs, at least one chapter of the longer work must have been originally published during the qualifying period
  • Any story which won an award in a previous year is not eligible for the same award in the current year, regardless of whether newer chapters were published during the qualifying period.
  • Exceptions to the rule are Best Overall Author -- any author is eligible, regardless of previous wins -- but only based on his/her work during the qualifying period.
  • Likewise, 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 writtten during the current year.
  • The stories may be hosted anywhere online (for example: fanfiction.net, fanlib.com, The Planet, LJ, other sites)
  • The main focus of the story must be the Superman movieverse (not Smallville, Lois and Clark, comicverse, etc.)
  • Writers may not nominate their own fanfiction for any category.
  • Nominations will be accepted between June 1, 2008 and June 30, 2008. The top five fics nominated will be placed into the final ballot. If there is a tie, we will include a sixth nomination. A run-off ballot will take place on June 30, 2008 if for any categories which do not have a clear nominations list.
  • Voting will take place between July 1, 2008 and July 14, 2008, in a manner to be determined (mods are in the process of researching secure alternate methods)
  • Awards will be announced on July 15, 2008.
  • Please see the community profile page for more pertinent information.
