Nominations for the Tree and Flower Awards

Because I will be working tomorrow morning, and because the nomination posts will take a while to put up, I am going to begin posting them today. However, it is very likely that the posts will NOT be completed until tomorrow afternoon.

Please do not begin making nominations as soon as each post goes up, because there will be a special comment section for each subcategory. Give me a chance to enter all of those subcategories before you start to nominate.

Remember, all nominated stories must be hosted at the Many Paths to Tread Archive!

Please could you tell me how long I have to decide which stories I want to nominate?And are stories on MPTT that didn't win last last and were posted before today eligable?

Nominations will close on Aug. 12, and stories posted prior to Aug. 3 will be eligible. But nominations will begin tomorrow.

Stories that WON last year are not eligible:
Here's a link with a list--
(WIPs are an exception, which is explained there.)

Stories that were only NOMINATED are eligible again.

I've got all the major cats posted now except for characterizations--that one will take me a while to post, it won't go up until tomorrow after I get home from work.

You can start on the others when you're ready though.

Many thanks for your prompt reply. One more question, are all the rules the same as for last year?
Jul. 27th, 2013 11:15 am (UTC)
Most of them--the only new rule has to do with last year's winners and WIPs, since last year there were no previous stories, LOL!

And comments will not be screened, so you can see what else has been nominated so we can avoid the hassles with duplicates we had last year--just be sure you check other possible cats for a story--(e.g. that story you want to nom in the Faramir category might also get put in the drama or LotR category, so check those as well.)

Many thanks. I'll be busy thhis weekend as I have a fellow MPTT writer visiting me!I shall look forward to nominating tomorrow or next week.
May I suggest a post here with a link to the rules and the dates ect. I think that encourages more folk to take part and avoids confusion? I don't want to be awkward, but I know amongst my friends at least, some get mixed up easily, or some ask me questions and I do want the awards to be a success. I'm really grateful for you and the other mods for running them as it is such fun to take part.

Yes, the rules post is up--I just had to get all those nominating posts completed--the posts did not take all that long, but putting in the threads for each one took a while, especially the characters one, which has I think 32 categories in it!

Anyway, it didn't take me quite as long as I feared it would!
