A: That's easy! Just go to the Nominations section on this board
and post your suggestion under the approriate category. For example, if you want to

specific story (short or long), a music video, and so on. Just check out the Nomination
section to see the various categories.

A: After the nomination period is finished, the awards committee will choose a selection

choose, at maximum, one nominee for each category. Whichever gets the most votes from the
fans will win the award.
Q: What will the winner of the award receive?
A: The satisfaction that the "Quantum Leap" community thinks that you are number
one! You also will be able to post an image (if applicable) alongside the winning item to
boast about your win.

Virtual Series / Fan-Fiction Awards
Al's Place - A Quantum Leap Fan Site
Apparently the destination for the majority of Leapers on the Internet, Al's Place has won
its fourth award for being the best all-around QL-related Web site. Between the image
galleries, the episode guide, the character resources, and much more, it's no wonder that
Al's Place is so widely recognized.
Place - A Quantum Leap Fan Site
With its wealth of media and links, Al's Place is definitely the source for
anything that one needs to know about Quantum Leap.
The Leap Back 2009
With an excellent design and lots of information on the upcoming convention, this
site easily takes the innovation award.
Scott Bakula Drawings
This year's winner is, again, a Scott Bakula Web site, focussing on hand-drawn images of
the star from his appearances in various shows.
This site is chock-full of information on Scott - biography, theatre, film, photos,
fan-fiction, and much more. Be sure to visit if you're a fan of Mr. Bakula!
Official Stockwell Appreciation Society
The Official Stockwell Appreciation Society Web site contains a wealth of information
about Dean's current appearances, historical articles, quotes, and so much more. It is run
by the Sassies, with much of the information coming from their mailing list.

Al's Place Quantum Leap Online Community
The hub of all "Quantum Leap" talk on the Web, this message board is
going strong with 224 active members (902 total). With continuous discussion, related to
"Quantum Leap" as well as venturing into other topics, this board is a model
community not just for QL but for the entire Internet.
This Yahoo! Group of 56 members deserves its win. Calling themselves the Sassies
(SAS = Stockwell Appreciation Society), this group of Stockwell fans talk about his film
and TV appearances, as well as his other connections in Hollywood and beyond.
Scott Bakula Fan Forum
Scott Bakula Fan Forum just barely beat out Scott Bakula Round Table to take the title of
best Scott Bakula community in 2007. Established on ezboard (now Yuku), the board has 435
registered members. They talk about all things Scott and always have the newest
information about him. There is even a forum for those who have met him to talk about

Virtual Series/ Fan-Fiction Awards
Quantum Leap: The Virtual Seasons
Starting out in 1999 with a "virtual sixth season" and 18 episodes, Quantum
Leap: The Virtual Seasons has grown by leaps (pun intended!) and bounds to a total of
eight more seasons with at least 28 episode each, greatly expanding on the universe
established by Donald P. Bellisario's original television series. It has many talented
authors as varied as the series itself, all of whom have aided in the growth of this
A.J. Burfield and M.J. Cogburn, the co-founders, have given the Quantum Leap community the
perfect opportunity to feel as though the series has continued.

improving her writing skills with stories in a variety of settings.
