The challenge began taking signups for the first round on September 2, 2009.
Round one had a minimum word requirement of 20,000 words, and author eligibility was limited to people who had posted a story of at least 5,000 words. Challenge stories were required to have two betas.The challenge was limited to a few fandoms that did not have big bangs already running. They were:
Posts for cheerleaders, betas, prompts and a community for discussion by the participants were provided to encourage authors and artists.
The stories and art are hosted off Livejournal on a website with feedback posts set up on a separate LJ community, Small Fandom Big Bang Feedback. The first round fanworks went live on August 6, 2010 with 10 stories and 20 pieces of fanart. The reveal was slightly later than originally planned, but a long run from signups to posting was part of the original design of the challenge.
Future rounds were planned for alternating years with a tentative schedule for round two to begin in fall 2011. This does not appear to have taken place.
