Preditors & Editors,
in association with
The Preditors & Editors Readers Poll
As part of our overall effort to assist and promote writers, we are proud to conduct the annual Preditors & Editors Readers Poll. We hope that this small effort helps all publishers and writers on the Internet to thrive in what is still viewed as a highly experimental and strongly competitive environment.
- Anyone can vote. Voting commences 24 December. The voting form and weekly results are farther down on this page. Please remember that you can nominate a new entry in any category simply by voting for them in the write-in box.
- Anything that fits one of this year's categories that was published in the previous year by any publisher with an open submissions policy is eligible for nomination. Publishing within a forum or chat room does not constitute publishing by the rules of this contest. Such entries will be removed and their votes will be lost.
- Names and email addresses will not be kept after this poll is over. Nor will those be given to anyone for use in a mailing list. We use those for counting purposes to keep the contest honest.
- All prizes may not be awarded. In the event that a false email vote was selected as a winner, no further drawing is possible because all email addresses are discarded in accordance with Reader Poll rules.
- All nominations/votes are subject to verification.
- The Readers Poll ends midnight of 10 January (GMT). Readers Poll Awards will be announced in February. Should technical difficulties occur, the poll may be extended.
- The entry with the most votes in each category will receive a beautiful customized GIF award similar to the one below.
