Hello and welcome to the 2012 edition of the Fansite Pageant. Our aim here is to celebrate the most liked fansites and award webmasters and webmistresses for their wonderful work. The Pageant is 100% fan driven! We staffers only keep track of the nominations and votes you cast. This is the reason why we encourage anyone to nominate and vote for their most loved fansites. Oh…did we mention that the person who has nominated the most sites gets a special award?
Read on to know the rules for nominating/voting or check out the About page for more information on the history of the Fansite Pageant, its staff and the website in general. We hope you enjoy your stay and contribute by voting your favourite fansites!

Simply put fansites, also known as shrines or tributes, are websites dedicated to a specific subject. Many diverse subjects are available, the only limit is the creator's fantasy. The most common subjects are characters, but there are also fansites dedicated to couples, TV series, books, and celebrities.
How Does it Work?
The Pageant will run from 25 November 2012 to 1 July 2013 and this period will be divided in four (4) stages as detailed below:
- Nomination Period (25 November 2012 - 9 April 2013): this is the time to nominate your favourite fansites. You can nominate as much fansites as you want, provided they don't break our rules. The category “Best Overall”, which includes 1 best overall and 2 runners up (or more in case of ties), is not open for nominations. For this special category winners will be chosen amongst all the fansites nominated, regardless of their category.
- Rest Period (10 April 2013 - 14 April 2013): after the Nomination period is over, we will take a few days to make sure all the nominations have been processed and prepare the Pageant for the next stage.
- Voting Period (15 April 2013 - 25 June 2013): finally the time to pick your favourite fansite has come! Check out the voting rules below.
- Rest Period (26 June 2013 - 30 June 2013): when the Voting period is concluded there will be a second Resting period to count all the votes received and see which sites have won. Winners will be personally contacted by us via email, then all the results will be posted here on the website 1 July 2013.
