Hello, all! It's that time again - time to nominate your fellow authors for some Hinky Awards!

First off, HERE is the link for the nomination form. Before nominating, take a look at the rules listed below.

Nomination Rules

1. The fanfiction story must be about NCIS and its characters. Crossover stories and stories with original characters are eligible, as long as they include NCIS and its characters.

2. The fanfiction story must be your own work. Plagiarized stories will not be considered. Stories written from a challenge or other prompt are eligible, as this does not negate the originality of the story itself.

3. Every author who wishes to participate in the Hinkys must now post an Eligibility List of no more than 15 stories (Series, WIPs and collaborations do not count toward the 15-story limit) completed during the eligibility period. All nominated stories must be taken from Eligibility Lists posted by the participating authors. If you would like to nominate a story from an author who doesn't have an Eligibility List posted in the proper forum, encourage him or her to create one before the end of the nominations period.

4. Unless the story is nominated for the Work-in-Progress category, the fanfiction must have been completed prior to the end of 2014.

5. The fanfiction story must have been finished within the eligibility period. Eligibility periods have changed in the past, but are currently set per calendar year. For example, the 2012 Hinkys are awarded to stories completed during the 2011 calendar year (plus the 15 days at the end of 2010 that were left over from before we changed to the calendar year format). The 2015 Hinkys will be awarded to stories completed during the 2014 calendar year.

6. The same fanfiction story can be nominated in more than one category.

7. Authors are eligible for Outstanding Author if they have posted fanfiction within the eligibility period, even if no stories were completed.

8. There is no limit on the number of stories an author can have nominated in one category, as the award is for the story, not the author. However, each author does have the right to decline a nomination.

9. All authors have the right to decline any of their stories’ nominations. All nominations will be received as accepted by the author unless we receive specific notification from an author that they would like to decline a nomination. The staff will not be asking authors if each nomination is accepted.

10. For a story/author to become an official nominee and appear on the voting ballot, it must be nominated by two different users. A list of nominated stories and their status will be available during the nomination period.

11. Nomination Periods will generally be about one month, and will be announced on an annual basis.

12. Each member can nominate up to six stories per category. You cannot nominate the same story twice. You may NOT nominate your own stories. This includes collaborations.

13. Remember to keep an eye on the Hinky forum for a list of current nominees. If a story you want to nominate is already official, you can nominate another story. Each member may nominate six stories per category.

The current nominations thread will indicate whether a nominated story is officially on the ballot or if it only has one nomination and is not yet official.
You do not have to nominate a story or author for every category. You may nominate six stories per category.
Please read the Categories and Criteria and the above rules before submitting a nomination form.

As always, if anybody has any questions, feel free to ask any Hinky staff member either via PM or in the appropriate Hinky discussion thread.

Thanks and happy nominating!

~Sherry :)

Just in case anyone had submitted a form and tried to get in to submit a second and couldn't, I have fixed that (forgot to check off the option to let people submit more than one form).
