What are the Koba Awards?
"The film industry has the Oscars. TV has the Emmys. Broadway has the Tonys. Sci-Fi has the Hugos and the Nebulas.
And now...Earth 2 has the Kobas!
The New Pacificon Convention Committee is proud to announce the ultimate Earth 2 fan fiction contest, the Koba Awards!"
A ripple of excitement ran through E2 Fanfic land when the NP2000 ConCom made this announcement. Brains went into top gear trying to devise plots. People eagerly searched their hard disk and notepads for that one brilliant-but-not-yet-finished piece of fanfic they had been working on.
This site is dedicated to the Koba Awards nominations. Its intention is to be a source for writers to become aware if they are nominated; fanfic readers can find out if their favorite story has been nominated and if so, they can take part in the voting which decides what stories will win a Koba Award.
Please be advised that in no way am I involved in the nominating and/or voting process, the Koba Awards or NP2000 -- except as a future attendee of the Con, that is :-)
