Dropped Awards:

These awards were dropped because there were either no nominations or only one nomination for them, and awards this year will not have automatic winners:

Best stuffup
Best quote
Most Cliches
Best Poem
Best Sci-Fi

How to Vote:

This year we will be going with the same system used in the last winter awards. If you don’t remember that then this is it:

Fics will be nominated in a series of points. Your first preferance in winning fic will receive three points, your second preferance will get 2 points and your third preferance will get one point. You can only vote for one fic per lot of points.

Please set your emails like this:


Best described fic
When Destinies Collide by Citrus Crush Chikorita = 3 points
Electric Buggy to Victory by OzAndrew = 2 points
Lisa the Legend by Gavin Luper = 1 point

Please email your fics with your preferred winners in order.


~ Don’t vote for yourself. Don’t make fake emails to vote for yourself because we will catch you, and there will be punishment.
~ Vote fairly, its always a good idea to read fics that you don’t know much about before voting for your favourites.
~ Please vote on your opinions of the fic, not on the member (unless its member awards and then still don’t judge it on the member). These awards are not a popularity contest, please vote fairly and based on the writing skills not on whether you like the person or not.

All votes are to be sent to fanficawards@hotmail.com. You are only allowed to vote once, so make sure you’re happy with your votes before you click send.

God bless.

Uh-oh, i'm in the same catagory as loads of talented writers....and my fic gets less awards then my myself, but the way I see it, if I get NOMINATED, it shows people appreciate both me and my work, it doesn't matter if I don't win a thing because I can say people like my work...

[movie speech = off]

20th September 2003, 09:17 PM
Hey, Venasaur89 (and anyone else who didn't know), you have to send the E-mail to the address listed by Mist in order to vote. You can't just post on this thread to do it; it needs to be an actual E-mail. The address is at the bottom of the first post in this thread.

Also, btw, did anyone notice that Sci-Fi only has on fic nominated? Just wondering, since there are no automatic winners this year.

20th September 2003, 10:32 PM
Ohh..crap! Thanks for reminding me.....Guess I didn't read the rules and stuff:P

So, the mod chooses which fics will enter the nominations???(Soory, I wasn't that active in the last winter awards!)

Gavin Luper
21st September 2003, 04:54 AM
The mods don't choose anything ... here's what happens:

The nominations topic is opened.
People nominate any fic they want in any category.
Nominations close.
Members are then allowed to Vote for the fics or whatever in each category.
Voting closes.
Winners of each category is announced.

I hope that helped a bit!

Good luck everyone! :)

21st September 2003, 11:06 PM
Two things:

1. I've been searching the board for Rose, by SneaselReborned, and it hasn't turned up. Anyone got a copy?

2. I checked my nominations post (I'm sure I didn't nominate for Fury for "best female in supporting role, and nobody else would put "weirdness" in the exact same way), and it turns out that Fury, from "best non-pokemon character", got put into Best Female Supporting character as well, and Marina from LTL was left out. Could you please put it in there? Thanks!

Last Exile
22nd September 2003, 12:36 AM
Just a note:

Apparently I have two nominations for best location.

Yet they are the same location!

Can people tallying votes please take that into consideration.

23rd September 2003, 02:26 AM
Okay I guess I made a mistake or two, but you cant blame me, I mean, I'm not perfect! I'll fix them up on the page now - but for further referance:

- there will be no more sci fi category

- stuff


23rd September 2003, 07:57 PM
Wow, I am very surprised on all of this. 3 nominations is awsome! Jen finally gets her glory! If you want to check out what shes like a link is below. Most dedicated reader to me is very wo for me. Thanks for all who nominated and vote for me. Can't wait to see how this turns out. Then for the best newcomer I think it is, I dont feel I fit the category. I made this sn a while back after my other two and its a long story but its explained in a post in the writers lounge. But I started a new story on it...so I dont know but its up to the mods to decide to drop me or not but its all good.

The Decapitated Mole
24th September 2003, 05:54 AM
Yeah, I think it's quite blasphemous that whoever it was did that after there was already the whole discussion in the elimination station. Whatever, like you said, it's for the mods to decide.


24th September 2003, 08:03 AM
Don't blame mr_pikachu, it was me. Well, what happened was i missed the reply (didn't go on TPM for two weeks, and it wasn't exactly new anymore), and I decided that the mods could decide whether you belonged there or not. Obviously, they didn't decide after all. Sorry, my mistake...

25th September 2003, 04:25 AM
Deadline is: Next Monday, 6 PM Australian Eastern Standard Time.

Work off that. Lol sorry, but if someone would like to post the other time zones that apply to people here then they're very welcome.


25th September 2003, 03:22 PM
I think that's 3 AM New York Time, Midnight Pacific Time. But I could be wrong. depends if sydney is on the eastern side of ozland, hell if i know XP :)

25th September 2003, 08:31 PM
I know this post is stupid, it's not going to change anything if I post it so late, but there might be some other last-minute voters like me who want to read as much as they can first. (And I've found some cool fics this way!)

Anyway, I came in here with a pretty good idea who I was going to vote for, and I was positive someone had nominated them... and they had been left off the list. I checked the nominations thread, and Classycat definitely nominated mr_pikachu for Most Dedicated Reader, and I know I nominated Marina (and not Fury, which must have bee a reading error since nobody nominated Fury for that) for Best Female in Supporting Character.

Well, good luck everyone!

26th September 2003, 05:10 AM
The deadline is on Monday?

Yeesh, thsat's pretty close.

Anyway, that's for all of you thtat nominated me. There's a link to my fic in my sig, but just to make life easier for you:


Good luck to everyone.

26th September 2003, 01:00 PM
Heh, and I had just assumed I was being concieted when I thought I'd been nominated for that, after I read the listed noms. Meh, it doesn't matter. I do appreciate being nominated for that, classy_cat18 (don't think for a second that I don't), but I probably wouldn't have won anyway, with all the other strong candidates, and everyone makes mistakes anyway. Although a nice solution might be to let me back in the Mod Contest... ;) lol, j/k. Yeah, I'm desperate. What can I say? I love this place. :D

Anyway, so this post isn't totally pointless, I have the deadlines for a bunch of time zones. Here goes:


BST, IST, WEST – 9:00 AM, Monday
CEST – 10:00 AM, Monday
EEST – 11:00 AM, Monday
MSD – 12:00 Noon, Monday

US and Canada:

NDT – 5:30 AM, Monday
ADT – 5:00 AM, Monday
EDT – 4:00 AM, Monday
CDT – 3:00 AM, Monday
MDT – 2:00 AM, Monday
PDT – 1:00 AM, Monday
AKDT – 12:00 Midnight, Monday
HST – 10:00 PM, Sunday


AEST – 6:00 PM, Monday
ACST – 5:30 PM, Monday
AWST – 4:00 PM, Monday

Please note that these are adjusted for Daylight Savings Time when listed. If it does not have a “D” in the abbreviation, it is not adjusted for Daylight Savings Time. If you do not go by Daylight Savings Time, or if the one listed doesn’t and you do, these will be 1 hour off, so please take that into consideration.

[i]Please note, I'm just adjusting Australia's times, cuz we're not in Daylight Savings time yet, unless someone forgot to tell me. ~Mist

Anyway, thanks again for the nominations, and good luck to one and all! :D

27th September 2003, 07:44 AM

30th September 2003, 08:44 AM
A bit later than I had hoped - this topic is closed. No more votes will be accepted. Don't even try and vote otherwise you'll be proving that you are a stupid bum monkey. :P I'm so nice.

Yeah - results should be up in a week or less. Heck, knowing me I'll stay up all night and they'll be up by sun rise. Seriously, results should be up sometime this week.
