The time has finally come - you may now submit your nominations for the 2011 CMFFAs!
( (Ballot)Collapse )
- To nominate fics, please fill out the nomination form provided below. PLEASE INCLUDE A LINK TO THE FIC IN YOUR NOMINATION! This is very important, as readers need to be able to read the fic before voting for it.
- Authors of nominated fics will be notified of their nomination shortly after it is received and their permission will be requested to include their fic(s) in the awards. Once the nomination period has ended and all fics have been verified, a voting list with links to each fic will be posted.
- An example nomination is as follows:
Screen Name: randomvoter10 Affiliated Site: www.fanfiction.net
Best Humour: "The One Where Morgan Tackles an Airplane and Hotch Takes the Team Out For Ice Cream" by casper0909 - http://www.fanfiction.net/s/49592354/1/Tackle
- The nomination period ends February 8, 2012 at 11:59 MST.
- Please EMAIL your nomination form to firstname.lastname@example.org (if emailing, you MUST include you screen name and what site it applies to e.g., ff.net, CM Fan Wiki, The Profilers, CMF Message Board CBS.com, etc). Please do not PM your forms to me; while this was allowed in previous years, because there are two of us modding this year, to ensure that there is no nomination tampering, the forms need to be available to all of us mods at the email above.
- Please read the rules before submitting a nomination ballot! Remember - you do not have to submit a nomination for every category.
Some general reminders from last year:
- When nominating for 'Best Portrayal of a Main Character', or 'Best Portrayal of a Supporting Character', please remember to include which character you think it is best portraying. Also, remember that 'Main Character` and 'Supporting Character' refers to the characters's role in the T.V. show, not in the fic. For a list of which characters are considered 'Main Characters', please refer to the 'category descriptions' post.
- When nominating for 'Best Author Team-Up', please remember that you are nominating a specific fic written by two authors - not just the authors themselves. We need a specific example of their work together, so please include a fic and link in your nomination.
- When nominating for 'Best Series', remember that a series means two or more fics written as sequels to each other. Though you're only submitting the link to the first fic in the series, a single multichapter fic does not qualify as a series by itself - there must be other sequels/prequels in existence.
- Double-check the category descriptions before submitting. I really don't want to have to throw out nominations because they didn't fit the requirements.
If you are uncertain about whether a specific fic/type of fic qualifies, please contact me and I'll try and clear it up for you! I'd rather you run it by me than having to throw out a nomination that didn't meet the requirements.
Note: When nominating, it is easy to consider only the most recent fics you have read, but please make an effort to look for your favourites from the entire year. These are awards for all of 2011, and the best results will come from presenting the top fics from the entire year.

PS: I sincerely apologize that this is AGES late and, ergo, for the lack of reminders about it...but my life is even shittier and more hectic than it was last year, so it kind of slipped my mind. Not to mention that I had to rearrange things a little because people who were supposed to help me last year crapped out on me and I want to avoid a repeat of that. But don't worry, you've still got the exact same amount of time for everything, it's just a little later than it should have been. I promise to try very very hard to fix these issues for next year...assuming you guys still want me.
