2007 (Fifth) WOWAY Awards Official Topic

Postby Akrovak » Sat Dec 16, 2006 4:56 am

As promised, it's finally that time again ... the time for the 5th WOWAY Awards, a presentation of awards to the forum's members for their contributions between the previous WOWAY awards (28 October, 2005) and now. If all goes as planned, the actual ceremony will be held on the 27th of January, 2007.

The nomination process will begin tonight with our first three categories. On the 18th, I'll open up three more categories for nominations. Every three days after that, up to the 8th of January, I will do the same. I will try to post all of the categories sometime between 8:00 and 9:00 PM Eastern (but if you see them earlier or later than that, just understand that I may be doing other stuff). ALL nominations will conclude on the 10th of January, at midnight eastern time. On the 11th of January, the voting will begin, and will remain open for two weeks (the 25th of January). I'll have more details on that when I figure out how I'm going to do it. And then two days after that, we will have the awards ceremony at 8:00 PM Eastern time.

To nominate someone or something for a category, just post in this thread who or what you are nominating, and for which category. If you have a link (such as to an avatar, a specific post, a parody song), it would be VERY helpful to include it in your nomination. For the nominated person or thing to actually be considered for an award, it will have to be seconded by someone else. That post can be made in this thread as well.

ETA: One nomination per person per category, please ... and if you believe you're eligible for an award, pimp yourself in the chit chat thread before nominating yourself (having someone else nominate you is a lot more satisfying).

To be considered, the nominated person / item / whatever must have occured between the 28th of October, 2005 and the 15th of December, 2006 (a few categories will be broken down even further, and that will be noted when I announce those certain categories).

I nominate Jigawatt for Best Avatar (Non-Photo). I believe he was the winner last time and...well...he really hasn't changed it that much since then, so I think he has a pretty good chance at it again this time.

I'd like to nominate kristineslipson for Best Avatar Series.

She's made some really cool looking avvies not only for herself but for Survivor players as well as other members. I believe she deserves recognition for this.
