So, I've been teasing at it for a while, and now I think it's time to officially open our first awards events!  Get excited people!  It's time to recognize the best of what our community has to offer. =-)

***DISCLAIMER: this awards event is not tied in to the Year-End Extravaganzas held by the official Nuzlocke forums in any way!  Different organizers, and different pools of members, as we know many people here on dA are not on the official forums.  We've also specifically tried to highlight different kinds of awards to distance ourselves from the Extravaganzas - that's why there are less skill-based awards here and more community-oriented awards - and why we're doing this in summer instead of winter.  We're not trying to compete with the forums at all.  They'd crush us anyway. X-D***

For a quick summary of how this will work: we'll have about a month of open nominations first, where everyone in the group can nominate whoever they want for any of awards categories.  Once the nominations period is over, an awards committee will be selected, and they will deliberate to decide on the winners from the top nominees.  We thought this would be a good balance between letting everyone get involved and preventing any potential "popularity contests".  Sound good?

Okay!  So, you want to start making your nominations now, right?  Below is the list of all the awards we'll be giving.  You can make up to three nominations per award; copy the list below and paste it into a note to send to the group (please refrain from nominating yourself for anything).  Don't worry if you can't fill it out completely just yet, or if you think you might change your mind - if you ever just want to add to or change your nominations ballot, just reply to your first note with your updated ballot!

:pokeball::pokeball::pokeball:
Since this is our first awards ceremony, we aren't going to put a time limit on who you can nominate - however long it's been since a story/creator has been inactive, they're eligible this first time around!
*Need help remember what events we've had?  Well, there's the Spring '12 Battle trade, the Nuzlocke Challenge Olympics, the Fall '12 Halloween collab, the NOCT1, and the current Monotype tournament!  (btw, the Tournament now has hit the 50 battles mark!)

Nominations will be open through Friday, August 15th.  Enjoy!  Feel free to ask questions below.

best comedy/funniest- 'Team Kickass'

ummmm I think that's it really. I sort of hope I can get some sort of nomination, but of course I haven't got any fans or haven't had enough time to draw and make the story further then it is, and well....actually I don't think you care, so ignore this bit.

Please send your nominations in a note using our ballot format!  It makes things muuuuuch easier for us to not have nominations splattered all over the place. =-)

Do we have to vote for three per category? Or could we do less than three?

It's fine to do less than three!  Three is just the limit we're setting.  Heck, it's fine if you send in an essentially blank ballot with just one name in one category!  Not ideal, of course X-D but the nomination phase is essentially just an idea-collection phase.

Okay. Thanks for your response! I got worried if I didn't fill it out entirely, it wouldn't get accepted. XD
