The Episode Heard Awards

(Are you a small author struggling to get recognition? Well, this is the thread for you!)

Dear Episodians,

We are pleased to announce a reader chosen community stories hidden gem contest. The winners of this contest will be promoted on all personal social media accounts lead by the group leaders as well as anyone else who would like to help with promotion (see below for more information). The stories will also be announced on the Heard Awards Official Instagram.

Due to the small numbers of our team we are currently only accepting up to 70 stories. In the future we will possibly accept more.

  1. You must not submit your story if it has over 2000 reads. This contest is to help the authors that get very little exposure and are struggling at the moment.
  2. You must have at least 3 episodes completely done and published before you can submit.
  3. Your story must be published.
  4. Your story is not allowed to have any guideline breaking behavior in it. While we are not the episode team, we will be using our own discretion to determine if we think a story disqualifies due to this.
  5. You must fill the form out completely before or you will not be eligible to enter. This is very important.
  6. You are allowed to nominate stories if you’d like, but the author still has to follow the rules and fill out the form.
How Do You Decide The Stories for Round 2 (The voting round)?

Since we are only accepting the first 70 stories that adhere to the rules our small team will read through them and then decide a score out of 100% for them.

We will be scoring the stories based on:

  1. Directing
  2. Storytelling
  3. Grammar/Spelling
  4. Characters
  5. How well we liked the story overall.

We are only reading the first episode of each one. This is so we can get through all 70, but also because if a story isn’t good at episode 1 it’s probably not going to be much better throughout.


We want you all to only vote on the best of the best, so once our group has gone through the first 70 stories to get submitted we will let you all know the ones that have an 80% or higher score. All these stories will then be listed in the forums for people to pick their top 3 favorites. It is strongly encouraged that you read (at least one chapter of) all if not most of the stories on the list. We are giving you all 2 weeks to do so.

At the end of the month we will pick the winners based on your votes!

"How Many Winners?

We want this to be as beneficial for everyone, while also not taking promotion away from other people because there are too many stories. Depending on the amount right now we’re looking at between 9-15 stories.

Social Media Promo

We are in need of people who would be willing to share the stories of the winners once they are announced. This can be over Instagram, Facebook, the Forums, etc. We just need people willing to share. If you are interested please comment down below with your instagram/other social media handles and we will add you to our social media list! We are in need of as many people as possible for this.

Timeline (When Things Are Due)

All Stories are to be submitted by November 30th. This should give you all a bit of time to do edits if you’d like.

Our Team will try to have all stories gone through by December 15th.

Voting Will Open December 16th and be open for 2 weeks . You are not allowed to vote on your own story.

The End of December/Beginning of January we will pick the winners!

Good luck and we hope you join! :grin:

Thank you so much! This is really cool :blob_hearts: I just send in the application <3


im going to enter, going to give it a go. :sunglasses::smiley: wait, @Baleigh_episode are all styles accepted or just ink & LL?


We don’t mind any style. We really want to focus on the stories and directing, not the never-ending LL/Ink battle


lol, thanks. :sunglasses:


Alright guys, we’re opening a Q&A, so if you have any question regarding the awards, ask below and either me or any other member will answer you!


Hi! What if we just started our story? We won’t have enough time to send it to you and we’ll miss the voting! When is the next awards?


How many stories can you vote and how many can you put forms?


You can participate with as many of your stories as you want. As for the voting, when it will be time for that we suggest you only vote for one story.

We don’t know when the next awards will be but I can make sure to tag you on the announcing post when it happens if you’d like

That would be great, thank you!


@Faith.episode.cats To clarify, you can enter a couple of your stories if you want, but please do not enter the same story in two different styles (LL & Ink for example). And for the voting, we recommend you vote for your top three favorite stories when they’ll be announced.




This is so amazing and helpful of you to help out the small authors such as myself. Its been really hard to get noticed since I started. I’m definitely signing up.
