Nomination Form

Nominations run from April 5th until the 15th. You're able to nominate up to 7 fandoms and for each fandom, up to 12 platonic and/or romantic relationships (& or /). The fandoms must be medium sized fandoms (unless it's an RPF fandom or movie fandom which means it can also be a much smaller fandom). Please nominate fandoms that you are intending to request or offer. The eligibility rules are here.

You must have an AO3 account to use the nomination form. If you need an invitation, please contact us at

You can see the nomination tag set here to see what has been approved.

Note: Fandoms will be the first things approved. Relationship approvals will be much slower. Approved fandoms and relationships will be visible during nominations. The panel for approving fandoms and tags is finite, so I cannot see everything that people nominate. If you are wondering why Fandom X or Relationship Y is taking forever to be approved, it might be because I cannot see it on the panel due to other fandoms and relationships taking up that space.

Please use AO3 canonical fandom and relationship tags as much as possible. Those are the ones that get approved first and the AO3 canonical names are what we are using. If, as an example, you want to nominate 'El Gato/Sue Johnson' the relationship but AO3 has 'Sue Johnson/Juan "El Gato" Rodriguez' as the canonical, the tag set will use the latter.

If anyone nominates a fandom from the megafandom list, it will be flat out rejected. People who accidentally nominate too small fandoms will have a chance to change their nominations until the next clarification post.

When asking for clarifications, if I don't receive information by the next posting, that fandom or relationship will be rejected from the tag set. Please keep an eye out for clarification posts.

I will be approving or rejecting nominations during Nominations and once a fandom or relationship has been reviewed, it cannot be changed. However, I will ask for clarification through the admin comm. If no one speaks up in a couple of days, I will reject said fandom/relationship.

Nominating Fandoms

To nominate a fandom, under Fandom 1 (Fandom 2, etc) type in the fandom name. As much as possible, please allow the autocomplete fill in the name of the fandom. More often than not, because these are medium sized fandoms, it is highly likely that your fandom would has already been uploaded to AO3. If it doesn't come up on the autocomplete, type it in and hit enter.

If you've made a mistake or want to switch out this fandom for another, you can click on the X next to the name. The same goes for relationships.

Nominating Relationships

This works like nominating fandoms. Autocomplete may be able to give you an AO3-canonical version of your relationship's name if a fic has been uploaded with it before. If it doesn't come up on the autocomplete, type it in and hit enter.

Relationships that can be nominated:
-If you want solo gen, type in 'Character & None' (example using an ineligible fandom: 'Derek Hale & None'). This relationship tag won't be AO3 canonical, so type it like above.

-If you want gen between two characters, type in 'Character & Character' (example using an ineligible fandom: 'Cora Hale & Derek Hale').

-If you want shipping between two characters, type in 'Character/Character' (example using an ineligible fandom: 'Cora Hale/Derek Hale').

As you can see between the examples from gen and shipping, one is platonic between siblings and one is incest between siblings, so nominate carefully to get what you want.

-Threesomes/moresomes tags are allowed, but only AO3 canonical ones. If the threesome/moresome tag doesn't come up on autocomplete, then it's probably not AO3 canonical.

Submitting your nominations

Click submit when you're done.

If you want to edit your nominations, look to the upper right where there is an Edit button. You will be able to edit if your nominations haven't been accepted or rejected.

How to tell if a nomination has been accepted or rejected?

If it's accepted, there will be an image of a check mark next to it.

If it's rejected, there will be an image of a X mark next to it.

If it hasn't been looked at yet, it will have an image of ?! mark next to it.

Your submission isn't finalized until everything on it has been reviewed or until nominations end.
