There are only a couple of changes to the competition this year.

We have combined the three non-fiction sub-categories of Essay, Research, and Tutorial, into one sub-category of Non-fiction.

We have combined the sub-category of movies: it will now be "Favorite story inspired by Peter Jackson's movies of The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings". So any story that is movie-verse can be nominated in this category.

Another step we have taken is to formalize our policy on ties, as it's what we have always done anyway. Two-way ties will share the award equally. Three-way or more ties will have a run-off. If they still tie, then they will share the award.

This sounds immensely sensible, but banner-making me is paling at the challenge of putting that bit of text on a banner! *g* Perhaps we can shorten the category name for the banners? Like, for example, "... inspired by Peter Jackson's Tolkien movies" or even just plain movies?

I happened to make the banners for that category last year, when the categories were combined, and (with the mods' permission) the text was "Favorite story inspired by Peter Jackson's movies". Definitely much more manageable! :)

Yeah I gave you both free reign last year with that and it worked out splendidly. :)

I absolutely agree! The full name is for those who are nominating, so they know ALL the Middle-earth movies are included.

"Favorite Story inspired by Peter Jackson's movies" is just fine for banner purposes, LOL!
