The Quill Awards aim to recognize the contributions of members of Writing.Com by presenting awards meant to highlight quality work in categories ranging from community efforts (such as contests and groups) to writing ability (such as poetry and stories). Ultimately, the Quills wish to build the community at WDC by promoting high quality work and good faith between members of the site.
If we headed over to "2021 Quill Nominations" , we'd discover there's a whole bunch of categories with the following disclaimer:
There are currently no nominations in this category.
It's not because I'm super far behind with the nominations page. In fact, I only have a few outstanding items to add. I even had enough time to tweak the look of the page a little bit over the last few days.
I know we're all busy, and I know we're especially busy with NaNo coming up. I also know we've seen some good work, some great contests and some forums deserving of recognition. All the categories could use some fresh nominations, and the empty categories need special attention.
I'm not asking for donations, judges, or any other kind of help at this time.
All I am asking is each of you reading this go and nominate one item.
One item could mean the difference between recognition of some great work and the loss of an entire category.
You are free to nominate as many items as you think are worthy of consideration, but I'm only asking for the one.
The Quills are not an official WdC contest, so they don't have direct entries. They rely entirely on your nominations. A huge thank you to everyone who has nominated already. You are welcome to nominate as many pieces as you like. So, whether you have nominated or not, please consider nominating a great piece of work, forum or contest today.
A couple things to keep in mind when nominating:
1. You cannot nominate yourself.
2. To prevent self-nominations, nominations by secondary accounts will not be accepted.
3. You may nominate as many items as you wish, as long as you follow the other rules. So go forth and nominate!
full rules are on the nominations page
