Can I get a BOOYAH? That's right folks, it's that time again, time for the Third Annual Fannie Awards! This time, we are looking at the best of the best for the year 2007, and there are quite a few to choose from this year. With the new season, we saw an influx of new authors and new ideas, giving us over 1,000 new stories this year. So many tales to choose from, so little time.
So let's get to what this is all about! You, the people, are the ones that decide who wins each and every award! Make your selections on the handy list I'm providing below. Any story written or contributed to in the year is eligible to win, with one exception. Those stories and writers who won previously in a category can not win again this year, though the awards for Best Writer and Best Series can be the previous winners again after 2 years. This is to help open up the field for everyone to have a chance. See the list below for all the details.

This year, one category has been removedby the decision of the Fannie Awards Committee. Best Single Line has been removed. We have added 3 new categories though, thanks to the votes of the Fannie Awards Committee. These include Best Young Author, Best Short Story, and Best Writing Team. Finally, we have one returning category, Best Songfic, which was voted back unanimously by everyone. All 4 new and returning categories were voted on by the Committee, and I hope you will embrace them as well.
This year, there will be a slightly different format. There will be 2 rounds of voting this time. Voting for the first round will end at 11:59 pm EST on January 31st, 2008. These ballots will be done as normal, by the ballot form provided below and submitting them to me by PM or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The second round will start immeadiately after that, and will include the top 5 vote getting stories and writers in each category in a secret poll format hosted on my forum on fanfiction.net (www.fanfiction.net/forum/Kim_P…
) . For those without an FF.net account, you can email your response to me, and I will add it to the final count. This round will run for anouther 2 weeks, until 11:59 pm, February 14th, 2008.
The awards show will then start Saturday, February 23rd, 2008, after all votes have been tabulated, award winner speeches submitted and added, and all the details are finalized.
Also, be sure to check out our great website, developed and maintained by the inestimable Commander Argus.intbike.com/fannie3.htm
On a final note, I would like to thank those helping me with putting this event together this year. Commander Argus, webmaster supreme, and the members of the Fannie Awards Committee, Triaxx, King in Yellow, and CaptainKodak, not to mention all the little things so many others do. This is made possible thanks to their assistance.
So there you have it folks. Place your votes, and get ready for the party! This should be a blast!
