How Story & Poem Category Nominees Are Decided:

On the 15th of every month, we tally up the votes from stories submitted during the previous month. The story in each category with the best voting score compared to all other stories submitted that month is automatically eligible for that year's Literotica Author Awards voting. These are posted every month in the Awards & Contests forum under the subject "Congratulations to [month]'s Category Nominees", and can be found in the Awards & Contests forum.

At the end of the year, we have 12 nominees in each category. The 5 stories in each category with the best voting scores at the end of the year will go on to the final voting. One will be selected in each category by voting in this contest as the top story for that year. If there are less than 5 nominees in a category, the top scoring submissions in that category during the calendar year become eligible.

If a single author had duplicate nominations in a category, we choose only the top scoring story as eligible in order to give more authors a chance to be read & appreciated. If there are less than 5 nominees in a category, multiple submissions from the same author may be eligible. Stories with 50 or more votes are given priority.

Turning off voting on a submission at any point during the year disqualifies the submission from any and all contests or awards, as does removing submissions or membership from the site.

The Special Category Nominees were selected by the nominating process that took place here. In the case of a tie, the authors who contributed the most stories and poetry during the year received the nomination. Author self-nominations are excluded from the tally in the case of a tie.
