Nominations Open!

winter leaves

Sorry, I'm a day late on getting this up. The date got away from me.

We've moved to Live Journal since most of the fic nominations are coming from here anyway. The new site is at sog_awards

Everything has been revamped and will hopefully cover everyone's favorite fics and art.

Links to everything are in the sidebar but relevant links are:

Rules and dates


Banners and icons



And we are, as always looking for new judges. It's been a while since we've had a round and judges have moved on to other fandoms or are just busy and can't help this round so if you're interested in helping out as a judge you can PM shannon730 or comment here and we'll get back to you.

I just posted a request for comments on my own journal, and I thought I'd post the link on this comm to see if I could generate more advice. Basically, a friend of mine wants to organize a new judged awards in the Harry Potter fandom, and I don't know enough about the behind the scenes logistics to be much help. In addition to those reading this who do have that behind the scenes knowledge, I'd love to hear from judges about things you've seen done well (or not), things that made your task easier (or not), things you've often wished the mods of an awards you were judging would think about or do. Thanks in advance for your time.

Oh, and shannon730: next time I agree to judge for you, I promise to turn in my scores on time. Or more on time, anyway. Thanks again for that.

The final category assignments is up here. I'm reasonably sure the only category that won't need judging is Extreme although I left 2 of you assigned to just incase I get nominations before tomorrow night.

As a note, I was hit with A LOT of Nominations, nearly 70 to be exact since Sunday. I've put them all on the pending page and am waiting for everyone to reply that the accept the nominations. I gave them a deadline of next Thursday to reply or they'll be dropped. that's when I'll put voting up, you can start judging whenever you want but the final nominees won't be up until Thursday evening. I'll try to update the list everyday but I have school and well, RL stuff to do as well so I can't promise anything. You are however, welcome to use the pending page (the link is on the site) to read from.

The judging forms are here.

Judging starts on the 16th of this month and ends on March 31st. If you can't get your scores in on time I need to know as soon as possible.

BTW, I only assigned 2 judges to most categories 3 is better so if you have any extra time and want to do more categories feel free to do any that only have 2 judges, but let me know if you're doing it so I can add you to the list so everyone knows and I don't end up with 20 scores for one category....

And I'm screening comments to this post so you can post your scores here.

Please sign up

Guys, it's almost the 16th and most of you have not signed up for any categories yet. I know I posted late (this weekend) but at this point I don't have even 2 judges for each category and 3 is ideal.

I am only shooting for 2 though so check out this post and see what's still needed and sign up to judge please.

katekat1010, lzod, scratchingpost1, sileya, I will assign you to categories Thursday or Friday. And thank you so much for not being picky about categories so I can fill you in as needed.

Category Sign ups

winter leaves
Below the cut is the list of categories and who has already signed up. I would, ideally like 3 judges per category. 4 would be better but I really need at least 3.

Comment with what categories you want, but if you see there are already 4 in a category choose something else. Actually if there are 3 and you see that many others have 1 or none, it would be great if you choose one of those. Remembe the faster you comment the higher the chance you'll get your categories since I'll be taking them in the order they come in.

Remember every category is limited to 10 nominees this round, although if we do get more than 10 for a category and it's possible to break up by pairing or character I will do that and ask for volunteers for the new category.
