The Sunflower Awards

Nominations are now open for another round of the 
Sunflower Awards

We encourage you to send us your favorite well-written and unknown fics. The Sunflower staff is excited to see what you have for us.

There are a few new rules added to the Rules page. The administrators felt it was necessary to assure that only unknown and under appreciated stories and authors were eligible for nominations. 

Our goal has always been to put the spotlight on the authors and stories that have gone unnoticed, and we hope now we can achieve our original intent.

On the Categories and Nominations pages, we decided to change a few things as well. The missing categories are the ones we felt were hard to validate, so they were removed. In their place, Best Wolf Story had been added after we realized a huge part of Twilight Fanfiction had been unintentionally shunned. We apologize to all the wolf-lovers out there for our misstep. We are eager to see your nominations for that particular category.

A limit of 25 stories per category has been put in place, due to the overwhelming response we received last time. We hope it will encourage you to nominate in all categories and not just a few.  Also, we encourage non canon and canon pairings.

Nominations are open and will run until January 20th.

You can vote for your favorite stories from 
January 29th to February 19th.

All winners will be announced on February 26th via Twitter, with all winners posted on the Winners page on the blog immediately after the reveal.

All winners will receive a banner depicting them as the winner of their category by @d_inspiration.

The top two winners in the Sunflower Award and Sunflower Storyteller Award categories will also receive a review written by @shelikethesound to be featured on the blog in March.
