Nominations for the 2009 Awards are now open!  

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

  • Fanfiction written between June 2008 and June 2009 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 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.
  • 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
  • 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, 2009 and June 29, 2009, 11:59pm EST. 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, 2009 if for any categories which do not have a clear nominations list.
  • Voting will take place between July 1, 2009 and July 14, 2008 using the non-LJ-affiliated Zoomerang survey service
  • Awards will be announced on July 15, 2009.
