The Watty Awards are Wattpad’s annual global celebration of storytelling, and first and foremost, it is a contest for users to enter their best works uploaded onto Wattpad over the last year!
When entries open on June 15th, 2017, you will be given the ability to add the tag #wattys2017 to the stories you wish to enter. To be eligible to enter this year's Wattys, a story must:
- have a minimum of 5 chapters published after September 1, 2016, or
- be marked as "Complete" with all chapters having been published after September 1, 2016
- must have #wattys2017 added as a tag in the tag section of the story
Other requirements to consider when entering your story is that it can be of any genre or rating, it cannot violate Wattpad's Content Guidelines or Terms of Service, it must be of your own intellectual property, and it must be fully accessible on Wattpad.
This year, we are accepting entries in 10 languages: Engilsh, French, Spanish, Italian, Malay, Tagalog, Turkish, Portuguese, German, and Indonesian. Unfortunately, if your language isn’t included, while you can still add the tag to your story, it won’t be eligible to win.

Best of luck to all entries!
