News! The Rose & Bay Award

Online fiction now has an award!

Thanks to weblit.us, I discovered that Elizabeth Barrette, who’s behind Crowdfunding Creativity, with the help of friends, has set up the Rose & Bay Award.

What Is the Rose and Bay Award?
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 five categories: Art, Fiction, Poetry, Other Project, and Patron. (Other Project includes any cyberfunded creativity that isn’t art, fiction, or poetry — or that spans more than one category.)

The nomination period runs until January 31, 2010, with voting running through February.

This project needs our support. Imagine how this could expand! It would be cool to see new sub-sections added e.g. Best new entrant, or genre-based awards, and so on!

What are you waiting for?

Go nominate your favourite works of web fiction!
