This an award community dedicated to the wonderful pairing of JuC aka Joshtin ; JC/Justin Slash. All sorts of awards will be offered within a 3 month time frame. The way the community will work is as follows: every week two awards will be given to one or two authors; there will be a 3 day nomination process followed by a 4 day voting process. Once the votes are in and have been counted (votes will not be accessible to the public) the awards will be given. Once a story wins a catagory, it will not be allowed to be nominated in the same catagory again.
There are 20 different categories and there will be one winner for each. Once the 19 and 20 categories are won, we will start the process over again. I don't want a community that's going to fade away after the first round of awards. I want this community to last, and I want to give all authors the chance to win an award, even if it takes five rounds until they get it.
Nominating and Nominees
Nominations will start every Sunday. The nomination process will be three days long. Nominations are open to all JuC writers. There is no set limit to how many nominees are in each category, because of this, there is a limit of one author per category. I am aware that there are many authors out there that have wonderful stories and everyone has a different favorite, keep in mind, this community is not going to close after one round. Every three months we will have a new go at the awards, so if your story wasn't picked, you're going to get another chance next time around. Also, an author can be nominated for both categories and may even win both awards for that week.
Everyone (even those who don't have ljs are allowed to nominate and vote) will be given a 4 day space of time to vote. Voting ends at 12:00 AM Sunday morning.
The awards will be posted on Sunday with two new award categories. There will only be one winner per category. Votes will be tallied and one winner will be announced, I will not be announcing who came in 2nd and 3rd place. As stated before, there could be one author who wins both awards.
A story will be allowed to be nominated again in the categories following the initial win. Once a new round has started, old winners will be ineligible to be nominated for the same award (it's just common sense) Once a story wins all categories, it will be officially barred from being nominated again at the_juc_awards.
