Fanfic Award Winners and Nominees

The Mighty Ducks Fanfic Awards – this is the vintage button from 2002!

When I was digging through my files looking for the classic green and white background so I could give the site a retro look, I found the nominations for the fanfic awards for Winter 2003, which never got finalised. I didn’t realise it had got that far.

At that point my life was falling apart, it wasn’t just a few bad days, I was being bullied relentlessly and living with an abusive alcoholic, so it was kind of understandable that I never finished the awards process. Apparently we got to the final round, having finalised the top three contenders, so here they are, seventeen years later.

And here are all the previous winners and nominees. So, if you want to know what was popular in this fandom nearly two decades ago, boy have you come to the right place.
