Now the real party begins!
Nominations are open from June 5th until July 5th, 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time.
-To nominate, please leave the author name and title as an in-line comment on the specific category. Remember to tag three other writers who you think might be interested in participating.
-Tag your work using #theooorahs as it will be easier to find.
-If you're self-nominating, you're done. If you're nominating someone else's work, they must acknowledge the nomination by replying to the initial nomination in order for their work to be considered.
-You may nominate one person, in up to five categories. If self-nominating, please do so only once, as it would be semi-rude to self-nominate five times, and yes, people would notice.
All categories are open to short/novella/novel length stories, with the exception of "Best SF Novel".
*The category "Short SF" has been removed, as it was limiting other categories, and generally confusing potential nominations. Any previous nominations will be moved to an appropriate category.
*The categories "Comic SF", "LGBTQ SF", and "Adventure/Survival SF" have been added.
Best SF Graphic Novel
Best SF Novel
Best SF Writer
Judges for each category will be announced in a few days.
Our team of expert judges will read through all the nominations, whittle each category down to ten stories, and then it's up to you in the voting chapter!
