Voting will begin on March 20th! Voting is open to all members and associate members of the Furry Writers' Guild, and will take place here on this site, so keep an eye out for when that goes up. You can follow the FWG on twitter at @FurWritersGuild and the chair at @makyo_writes for further announcements.

Congratulations to all of the nominees, and thank you to all who voted!

Note: Per the rules 5.a.iii: "In the event of a tie for the last place on the ballot in a given category, the size of the ballot may be expanded to include the tied works." The chair has decided that the "may" implies an optional step, as to expand the ballot for the tie for last place would make the ballot for this category 13 items long, which does not fit the spirit of the construction of the ballot in 5.a.
