Yuletide Nominations 2017 are open!Your Nominations ToolsetMore nominating tips
When a character could appear in many different versions across many fandoms, or has a generic name, we recommend that you put a fandom disambiguation tag after the name. For example:
-Bonnie Parker (Bonnie and Clyde (1967))
-Robin Hood (Prince of Thieves)
-Tulku (The Shadow 1994)
-Leonardo da Vinci (Da Vinci's Demons)
would all be helpful character names in their respective fandoms.
If you receive an error message that a character was rejected because it was nominated in another fandom, resubmit the character with disambiguation, as above.
If you submit a character that is new or rarely used on AO3, a suggestion from AO3 may appear in bold and in brackets (for example: Razzle (Nicholas "Razzle" Dingley
)) next to your nomination once it’s submitted. This is okay, and does not mean that your nomination will be automatically changed. However, if you don't recognize the character in brackets, it is a good sign that you should edit your character nomination and disambiguate it with the fandom you nominated, i. e. as “Character (Fandom Name)”.
Some fandoms, especially short ones such as music videos, do not need character nominations. Others will not be approved without them: RPF and Anthropomorphic fandoms.
As there may be more than one character who has used a superhero name, please make sure it’s clear which character you mean - you may want to use their “wallet” name. For example: Please don't nominate Robin, but instead Dick Grayson or Damian Wayne.
Please double-check the spelling and format of your nominations, both before pressing Submit and after.When do nominations close?At 9am UTC on 16 September
