[ADMIN] And the Winners Are...

Hey guys,

As promised, here's the results of the 2011 Middle-earth Fanfiction Awards.

Mostly, they're self-explanatory. Stories in each subcategory are ranked according to the number of points they earned. In larger subcategories, we also assigned Honorable Mentions, based on the size of the subcategory. But there is one thing that deserves a word or two: the Smaug's Treasures stories.

Since some subcategories are more competitive than others, a piece that would have won a less competitive category may not have ranked at all. In light of that, we introduced a new award this year called Smaug's Treasure. If a piece ranks in the top third of all nominations - compared to *all* the nominations, not just what's in its subcategory - it gets a Smaug's Treasure. This is given alongside the awards it won within its subcategory, and it's the author's choice which award they want to say they won. Whichever they prefer, it's their choice. Those pieces are marked with an asterisk.

So, without further adieu...
