The Literary Hanfic Awards (also called the Hanfic Awards for Literary Merit) were annual awards for Hanson fanfic. They ran from 1999 to 2001. The first round was moderated by Sab, Jamie and Lee and was a part of their Yahoo! Club Stories Will Be Told. This first round came about after a series of rants inspired by the Really Big Hanson Fanfic Awards.[1][2]

You're right when you say that these awards are popularity contests. But when you ask the general Hanfic public for nominees, that's what happens. What I think we need to do, Jenn, is get together and have our own LITERARY HANFIC AWARDS. E-mail me. We can do this. The only way to make sure that garbage like INAP doesn't end up a nominee in practically every category is to give the voters a choice of stories that are well-written, well-developed, and heck, why not ... use "your" and "you're" correctly. I guess what I'm saying is that in any kind of awards that rely on the readers at large to submit their nods, those with the most readers are going to end up as nominees ... whether they deserve to be there or not.


The second round was hosted on HansonFiction.com and moderated by Laura Motta and Amanda Dupuis.

1st Annual
