A Nominees/Voting Posts Round-Up

The Rose and Bay Award focuses on a growing business model known as "crowdfunding" or "cyberfunded creativity," which directly connects creative people and patrons of the arts online. This award recognizes exemplary projects and enthusiastic patrons. It spans six categories: Art, Fiction, Poetry, Webcomic, Other Project, and Patron. (Other Project includes any cyberfunded creativity that isn't art, fiction, poetry, or webcomic -- or that spans more than one category.)

Note: The fiction nominees have been split up into two "heats" because there are more nominees than LJ survey posts will allow. You may vote for one in each arbitrary grouping. There will be a second round of voting later.

Note: I am not affiliated with the Rose And Bay Awards. I am a nominee in the category of fiction. I'm creating this post because I wish to publicize the awards further and give people who aren't familiar with the crowdfunded works under consideration a chance to explore the nominees and vote, but I cannot find a concise "ballot" that lists the nominees and links to the works under consideration and gives the opportunity to vote in the same place. Please feel free to link to/share this post.

Where multiple links were included for a nominee, I've tried to order them in terms of immediacy, so that you can click on the first link and see examples of their work or find out what it's about without digging. I omitted some alternate links that were simply informational pages contained within the main link.


Thanks for the catch, I will fix that.
Oh, very useful! Thank you!!
This is fantastic, thank you so much.
Excelleeeent. So much easier than wading through the whole crowdfunding landing page. Many thanks.
Oh good. This is awesome and will help me get others to vote.
Yeah, that was my thought, exactly. I was going to post a "VOTE!" thing somewhere but by the time I was three paragraphs in to the explanation of how to find the voting posts for the other categories, how to find the nomination posts, how to find the nominees... I just went, "There's got to be a better way."
