Ginny Big Bang was a 2010 Big Bang challenge whose goal was to "give Ginny the best Valentine's Day ever by encouraging more Ginny-centric fic and art for everyone to enjoy." Submitted fanworks were posted on February 14, 2010.
It produced three stories and a single fanart; one participant described it as "tiny, warm Big Bang."
Ginny Big Bang accepted fanworks with all pairings and ratings as long as they featured Ginny Weasley as a central character. It did not allow RPF or fics with underage sex. Fics were required to be a minimum of 20,000 words. However, a submission did not need to be a novella, but could instead be a collection of one-shots that were somehow related to each other.
All fanworks were required to be created specifically for the Ginny Big Bang, and were not to be posted elsewhere until after March 15, 2010.
