    Default Writers' Study Yearly Awards 2017 - Nominations Thread!



    Everyone is invited to nominate your favourite writing from 2017 in our fourth Yearly Awards competition!

    In this competition, we recognise and reward the greatest writers among us this year both Creative Writing and AARs!

    This year's categories are:

    AAR of the Year
    For what else? the best AAR of 2017!
    You
    may nominate any AAR that received an update in 2017.

    CW of the Year
    For - naturally! - the best Creative Writing of 2017!
    You may nominate any piece of Creative Writing that received an update in 2017.

    Combined Award: Best Newcomer
    Who burst into the WS in 2017 in an explosion of writing talent?
    This award could go to someone who writes AARs, or CW, or both. You can nominate any member who posted an update to an AAR or piece of creative writing in 2017.

    Please read the rules, in the next post, before making any nominations.

    RULES

    Each category has eligibility criteria, in the post above. Please read them carefully. Only stories that were created and/or updated in 2017 are eligible.

    When it comes to nominating there are some other rules:

    The nomination period will be open until 11:59 GMT+0, 31 January 2018. Following this, there will be a two week voting period.


    Nominations are to be made in this thread
    Nope, that's not a link. Post your nominations in this thread that you're reading right now please!

    No self-nomination
    You cannot nominate yourself or your own work for any category.

    Maximum of three nominations per category
    You can only nominate
    a maximum of three nominees for a category. Any more than three nominations and only the first three will be counted.

    You do not need to make nominations in every category
    You may make a nomination (or nominations) in only one category, if you wish. Or you may make nominations in two (or more) categories. It’s entirely up to you!

    When making a nomination, please give as much information as possible.
    Please make sure you say which category you are nominating a person or piece of work for. If you are nominating a member (for Best Newcomer), you need only give the member’s name.

    If you are nominating an AAR or a CW piece, please give the title of the piece, AND the name of the author.

    If you are struggling to remember the exact details of the member or piece of work you wish to nominate, please nominate them anyway, with as much information as you have. If WS staff cannot easily identify the person/work/character you are nominating, they may ask you for more details. If we still can’t identify your nomination, we may decide not to include it in the competition.

    Best Newcomer
    As set out above, a “Newcomer” is someone who made their first substantial contribution to the WS during 2017. This means their first substantial contribution as an author of AARs or CW. Their first substantial contribution must have been in 2017. They would still qualify for nomination if they had written a brief one-post AAR during 2016, and then written several AARs (or a larger AAR) during 2017. They might still qualify for nomination if they started their first piece of CW at the end of 2016 and continued it in 2017, depending on how substantial their work was during each year. If you are in any doubt about whether someone can be nominated for the Best Newcomer Awards, please ask the WS staff.

    Each member may only win one award
    If a
    member wins more than one award, they will be given the chance to choose which award they wish to receive. This applies to second and third place awards as well as first place awards. The other(s) will be awarded to the runner(s)-up.

    A message from the winners of the first-place CW of the Year and AAR of the Year in 2015 and 2016
    Shankbot and I have agreed that neither of us will be eligible for nomination this year. We're very honoured by your votes in previous years, and very grateful for your support of our writing, which we hope will continue. But please don't nominate us this year. If you do, your nomination will be wasted, as it will not be possible to vote for us. The Writers' Study has many excellent writers - you still have plenty of people to nominate! - from Caillagh de Bodemloze
    Honour’ system
    We are running this competition on the ‘honour’ system. If you notice that you have been nominated for an award you do not qualify for, please notify the WS staff.
    Likewise, if you notice someone else has been nominated for an award they don’t qualify for, please notify the WS staff.


    If, at any stage, the WS staff discover that a nominee for or winner of any award does not qualify to be entered in that category, the WS staff reserve the right to disqualify them. If voting has not yet begun, the disqualified nominee will simply not be entered in the competition. If voting has already begun, and the disqualified nominee obtains enough votes to win an award, that award will be given to the person with the next highest number of votes.




    To nominate, please copy and paste the following into this thread, with your nominations for each category:


    AARotY:

    CWotY:

    Best Newcomer:


    For example:

    AAROTY: Story A by Member 1, Story B by Member 2, Story C by Member 3

    Best Newcomer: Member 7, Member 8, Member 9


    If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in the chat thread or PM any member of WS staff. Happy nominating!

    We are very grateful to all (Scottish King, Hitai de Bodemloze, m_1512, Radzeer and Dance) who began the Writers’ Study Yearly Awards in 2014. We want to say a huge thank you to Joar for designing the artwork. Please rep him generously for his troubles!

    CWotY: Swords Made of Letters by Basileos Leandros I , AD USQUE FIDELIS by Old Dragoon.

    I'd still like to do some last hour reading, so this is a WIP.
