We’d also like to recognize that the Archive of Our Own reached five million registered users on September 15th, which is a wonderful milestone to occur during a month celebrating the fan-made achievement that is the OTW.

Later today, we’ll email all of our winners, who will have 72 hours to provide us with a mailing address to send their prize to. If you are a winner and do not see our email in your inbox or your spam folder within the next 24 hours, please contact the Communications Committee to let us know.
