To all of our nominees - Thank you so much for putting your work out there. We were ecstatic to have so many fantastic fics nominated and we hope by being nominated, it may have driven some additional readers to your story that perhaps wouldn't have found your hidden gem.
To all of our winners - CONGRATULATIONS once again. Well done and bravo.
To all who nominated and voted on these wonderful stories - Thanks so much for your support. The Emerging Swan Awards wouldn't have been successful without people reading and loving the stories that were featured here.
To our amazing validation team - thanks for your hard work and diligence to ensure all the fics met our rules and criteria. We really couldn't have done it without your help.
Lastly a HUGE GIGANTIC THANK YOU to Christag_Banners who created each and every winner's banner. That was 45 individual banners if I recall. Well done and Cheers to you! If you won, please make sure to credit her with the banner when you post it.
We're unsure if we'll be having this award annually or bi-annually, but we'll be sure to let you all know once the decision has been made.
