Voting is now open for ALL categories. (The Art poll hadn't appeared by this morning, so I stepped in as the award manager and posted it myself. I'm not nominated there, so it's no conflict of interest.) Please pass the word and the links to interested audiences.
Vote for Art
Vote for Fiction
Vote for Poetry
Vote for Webcomic
Vote for Other Project
Vote for Patron
Please note that nominations for the Fiction category have led to a divided poll, so there will be a runoff poll in early March. Please read the "second round" news post for details about that.
We have NEW artwork! karen_wehrstein has completed Nominee badges for Fiction and Patron categories. Other art will follow as she has time to develop it. If you are nominated for Fiction or Patron, please pick up your badge now. You may display it on your blog or other website.
Which means ...
You can vote for me! I'm nominated in the Patron category for support of "Art for Haiti Relief" by Nashay Jones aka therebirthofme. Please also consider voting for the people I nominated as Patrons for their support of my Poetry Fishbowl: marina_bonomi, laffingkat, and minor_architect.
In the Other Project category, I'm nominated in the entry "Torn World" by Ellen Million, Elizabeth Barrette, Deirdre Murphy, Valerie Higgins, and others. Torn World contributors can't vote for their own project, but everyone else can -- registered members and supporters are fine, along with folks from a wider audience.
In the Poetry category, of course, you can vote for "Poetry Fishbowl at The Wordsmith's Forge." This is my main crowdfunding project and a major source of household support.
Thank you all for your enthusiasm and support, both for my personal projects and for the Rose & Bay Awards generally. You rock.
