Rules for Nominations

Stories with more than 1000 reviews are not eligible for nomination.

If an author has over 1000 reviews for any story posted on their profile, none of their other stories can be nominated.

No author nominated in the author categories can have any story with 1000 reviews posted.

All nominated stories must be Twilight. No crossovers.

Stories must be currently posted on either or Twilighted.

We only need a link to either Twilighted or In the event a story is found to be posted on both sites, and the total review count when added together exceeds the review limit, the story will be disqualified.

Stories must fit the category in which they are nominated.

A story can only be nominated in one category. This gives more talented authors and well-written stories a chance to shine.

WIPs that have not been updated in the last three months are not eligible for nomination.

Blinkies are not considered banners and will not be accepted in the banner category.

We welcome all completed stories as long as they meet the other criteria.

You can only nominate once, and only one story/author in each category.

If a story has been pulled for any reason, and re-posted, it will be rejected immediately. In the event that a story is found to be pulled and then re-posted after it’s been approved, we reserve the right to disqualify it. We cannot confirm the actual number of reviews if the original count has been erased.

If a story has met the other criteria and reaches 1000 reviews after validation, the story is still valid.

All past winners of the Sunflower Awards (this includes all categories) are not eligible for nomination. This applies to the story, as well as the authors, whether they were nominated in an author category or not.

Sunflower Awards staff cannot nominate or be nominated.
