The Genesis Awards has specific criteria for nominated fic. After our nominations close for the year, our Preliminary Readers will go through and ascertain that the fics that are nominated adhere to the grammatical standards of either Great Britain or the United States. After they finish the Preliminary Reading, we will release our official list of nominees for the 2009-2010 awards season and our judges will begin the process of picking winners. Judges grade based on things like voice, dialog, correct punctuation and spelling, plot, coherence, consistency, originality, et cetera.
If you know of any good FFX fic (X-2 is go, as well) that deserves an award, please go check out the Genesis Awards. You can visit our website at www.genesisawards.net or nominate on the forums, located at http://genesisawards.net/forums
