The Rose and Bay awards are open for nomination. You can nominate your favorite creative crowdfunded projects for this award. Here is a post linking to each nomination page
(fiction, art, poetry, webcomics, other creative projects, and donors are this year's categories).
Anyone is eligible to make nominations, though a creator cannot nominate their own work. Each of you is welcome to nominate any crowdfunded project you've been enjoying.
A sample nomination, with Torn World information, is as follows:Project Title: Torn WorldCreator Name:

Other Project (an original unique shared world with fiction, poetry, mythology, art, and encyclopedia-style articles about the world)Summary:
Torn World is a shared science-fantasy world where the co-creators write, draw, paint, and othewise create a complex world by telling the stories of the people of that world. Crowdfunding Method:
Torn World is crowdfunded through subscriptions to the site, sponsorships to specific stories, and donations to the creators during monthly Muse Fusion events, where the Torn World creators create cool new stuff in response to the prompts and questions posed by the audience.
Torn World is eligible in the "other" category, since Torn World includes poetry, fiction, mythology, art, and worldbuilding articles. If you wish to nominate Torn World, the other category nomination page is here
I also crowdfunded other projects:
- Fireborn, which I had hoped to finish in 2010; I still owe you the end of this story, and will get bak to it.. The landing page for Fireborn is here.
- Feather-Blessed, my series of short stories about girls turned into dragons by a magical feather. You start the series here.
If someone wants to nominate any of these projects and needs more information to fill in the blanks, just let me know.
