The contest will be judged prior to the convention by a pre-selected panel. A first, second, and third place overall winner will be chosen. Additional Judge's Choice awards may be given to entries that individual judges particularly liked, but did not win a primary award.
The winners will be announced and awards given out at a special panel during the convention. Excerpts of the top three stories will be read aloud following the awards. Winners may choose their own excerpts and read them themselves, or they may request the judges to do so.
All winning entries will be assembled into a PDF file, which will be printed and distributed to anyone attending the awards panel. A PDF file containing the complete set of eligible entries will be made available on the Anime Detour website after the convention. Please see the Writing Contest sections on the History page ordered by year.

By submitting an entry to the Fanfiction Contest, you grant permission for your story to be read aloud at the awards panel, distributed to panel attendees, and displayed on the Anime Detour website.
