New Middle-Earth Fanfiction Awards!
That's right, I've started a new Awards contest for LOTR fanfiction. I wanted to do these based on the ASC model my MAE is so fond of. What makes them different? You vote by commenting! You leave feedback as your vote! So every author who gets a vote gets something precious!
And we've (another LOTR friend and I) come up with some fun Awards titles for the main categories. Like The Morgoth Award (1st place), the Eye of Sauron Award (2nd) and the Witch King of Angmar Award (3rd) for the Horror category.
I do hope you'll participate if you write--or even just read!--Lord of the Rings (also Silm and The Hobbit) fanfiction. The more we get to participate, the better it will be.
You have to join a YahooGroup to participate. Saves me from having to learn all that fancy coding. I know basic HTML and that's about it. So join the MEFAwards group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MEFAwards/. You can read the FAQ there, or if you want to read it before joining, try this site: http://mefawards.agreatserver.com/Awards%20FAQ.html
Know some good fan artists? We need them, too! Someone needs to make the banner graphic awards for us. There's a large variety that need to be made, as there are 14 main categories (and three prizes each!). I hope to get two banners submitted per prize so that we can have a contest for the banners as well.
