Name:No Rest For The Wicked Awards
Membership:Open
Posting Access:Select Members

Welcome to No Rest For The Wicked, a bi-yearly multi-fandom awards community for fanfiction and fanart. We accept all pairings(Real People will be allowed every other round) and ratings for our awards, but be sure to read the category descriptions before nominating.

The name has no special meaning other than it's the title for a Supernatural episode. And we liked it. As for the category names, they were chosen based on episode names of the fandoms we accept.

The winners are determined by a panel of judges not by voting.

Round 7
Jan 1st - Feb 1st ~ Nomination period
Feb 2nd - March 2nd ~ Judging
March 17th ~ Winners announced
*subject to change

Any person under the age of eighteen and any fictional character under the age of sixteen is considered a minor.

The stories in the "Real People" section of this Award Site are all fictional parodies - none are true, nor are they approved of by the people named in the stories. The Supreme Court of the United States, the country where this site is located, has ruled that parodies involving famous people are perfectly and totally legal under the United States Constitution. No harm is intended toward the people featured in these stories, no expectation of realism is provided as every story is clearly fictional, and no profit is made. Please be responsible in your reading and mind the warnings given by the authors.
