The Galvorn Awards are in need of another judge for one category (Most Dysfunctional Family). If any of the current judges would be willing to take this one, please let me know.
We may also be in need of two more judges, as I've not yet received final judging results from two people. Anyone who would be willing to pinch-hit for the Galvorns, please let me know!

Okay, so, like, I have decided that the 'Most Plotless' list of nominations sucks. Pretty much every fic there has plot, or at least 'dramatic tension'. Considering that these awards are set in the Silm fandom, which is built on long pointless musings on The Tragedy Of It All, this seems fishier than a Telerin dinner. Why are all the completely pointless fics being ignored? Could it be because fics with no plot are, in fact, unreadable? (Except for PWPs, of course. Where were all the hot warrior slash PWPs when these nominations were made, hmm? It's all fishier than Ulmo's favourite pants, I tell you.)
In conclusion, unless someone can propose a good hot warrior slash PWP, I suggest that all the 'Most Plotless' Judges should go vote for Tehta's Unstrung
. Don't bother reading it: it is a truly horrible fic that got rejected even from HASA, with its low admission standards.

Only a few months late...
I was actually doing this last week, but just as I was nearly finished the computer froze and (as I naturally hadn't saved) erased all my progress. So I'm having to start again.
Just to get it up and functional, the nominees and poll for Least Qualified Judge are up at http://elffetish.com/galvorn.html
I will endeavour to redo the list of nominees this week, though truth be told, I am more than a little discouraged right now and can't quite bring myself to return to the task. This is probably more than enough reason to vote for me in the least qualified category, isn't it?

Better Late than Never!
I suspect by now most of you thought I was never going to make this post. Sorry for the delay; blame that pesky thing called Real Life. Anyway, here it is, the moment you've all been waiting for - ( the final list of nominees for the 2004 Galvorn Awards!Collapse )
Is anyone besides me surprised at some of the categories which received no nominations? Maedhros, your popularity is definitely waning!
("Most Blatant Attempt to Win an Award" will probable return to the list, after I've had a chance to contact the other judges and strong-arm them into nominating a story of their own for this category. Of course, the real
fun will come when it's time to decide which one of us will get to judge it!)
As you may or may not remeber, only categories with more than 2 entries will be formally judged by Finrod and his judging team. Here are the ( categories that qualify for formal judging.Collapse )
That's all the news for now. Stay tuned... the formal judging for these most prestigeous awards will commence very soon!

Latest Updates are Up!
Only two this time, but they're both good ones. Here they are!
Time is running out to nominate stories; the judging will be beginning in early December. And there are so many lovely categories without a single entry in them yet! So take some time now and nominate a few fics. Finrod will thank you.

Only a Few New Nominees This Week
But they're very good ones. You can find them here
. We still have room for plenty of additional stories, so keep those nominations coming!

This Week's New Nominees!
You guys did a frighteningly good job of locating worthy fics this week! Here are the latest additions
to the growing list of Galvorn nominees. We've still got planty of room for more stories, though, and some categories still don't even have a single fic entered, so keep sending those nominations in!
Several more fics have reached their two-category limit, so check here
before you nominate a story to make sure it's still eligible.
|Thursday, October 21st, 2004|
Another Weekly Update!
Only a few more nominees this week. I assume that means everyone's so busy seeking out more fics to add to the list for next week, they didn't have time to send in many nominations this week. ;-)
Anyway, you can see the new nominees here
. A few more fics have reached their two-category nomination limit, so be sure to check the list
before you send your new nominations in.
|Thursday, October 14th, 2004|
More Nominees Posted!
Galvorn mania is sweeping the land (or at least the Silmfics community), and the fics keep rolling in! Several new stories have been added to the growing list of nominees
. A few more stories have reached the two-category nomination limit
, so be sure to look over the list before making more nominations.
Keep sending in those fics, everyone. The more stories entered, the more fun we'll all have.
|Saturday, October 9th, 2004|
And the Nominees Keep Coming!
Yes, several more fics have been added to out ever-growing list of contenders. You can find them all here
A few more stories have also reached their 2-nomination limit, so check here
before you nominate a story, to be sure it's still eligible.
Keep 'em coming, folks!

More Nominees Added!
Our list of nominated storied continues to grow! Check out the most recent updates to the list here
Several stories have reached their 2-nomination category limit, so check here
before you make a nomination, so you don't nominate an ineligible fic.
One plea: please check your nominees for het relationships, and label them ADULT if they contain significant mention of het activity. (A passing reference to a husband and wife is OK, but lengthy conversations about marriage, scenes of men and women holding hands, etc. do need to be flagged!) That het stuff is sneaky, and we don't want our readers to receive any unpleasant shocks!
Keep those nominees coming - there's still plenty of room for more fics!

NOW go see.
Alright, I have updated the list of judges again, and SHOULD now have all the correct bios and names and, with the exception of Tyellas' Amidala Cat, pictures.See! See! Current Mood: Oooh, fun
|Wednesday, September 29th, 2004|
Now everyone can quit pestering me! Hooray!
Judges' bios are now up and running on the website
, so you can now all race on over and check 'em out.
If your computer is like mine and any remotely fancy script causes a security warning, you might have trouble with the popups. Current Mood: Time to dream about Elvses

And the Nomination List Keeps Growing!
I've added several more stories to our list of nominees. Stop here
and check them out!
We've got a lot of categories that only have one or two entries in them right now; it would be good for folks to keep an eye out for more stories that qualify in those, since only categories with 3 or more nominees will be judged. We want our Wholly Unqualified Judges to have something to do, after all!
And there are still many categories that have no nominees at all. So go seek out more stories! Otherwise Finrod might get the wrong idea and conclude that people are boycotting his awards, and that would not be good at all. His Nekkidness is scary when he gets angry.

The list of Galvorn nominees
has been updated! But we still need many more fics, so keep those nominations coming!
