I would be in favour of a new Best GIF category- or at least best giffer (is that a word?) as picking a single gif ut the hundreds posted would be impossible.

How about a Best Ambassador category? That would have Amarie, leelee, Odo (Little Forumshire) and someone else representing the Bree contingency.

We also need to decide Creative Corner categories.
And do we include stories that are not yet complete suck as Kafria's or Lances?
maybe i could be a Bree ambassador.. i do come from there Razz 

also, i think when nominating a story (series, novel (!) and short story) we should say something about each of them, a paragraph or two about why it is being nominated and what it is about.

Nod (one thing though, and this goes for everyone who wasnt about for previous awards, its good to have an avatar that can be used in pics, avatars which are covered in writing or abstract are not so good for the red carpet. You dont need to keep the same avatar forever, just long enough for people to associate it with you and that can be basically photoshopped into other pictures- this not only means you can cut a dash on the red carpet but it also means you are much more likely to turn up in the pages of the NotP)

As for categories, don't know if we have enough options for Best Fjordlandian Translation yet, but I'm thinking it may build up. If I recall Orwell started the trend a while back.
i vote for this! but we need some more fjordian to translate, have a translate-off between the keenest or something Very Happy 


and Ringo, i am sure you'll win something soon Nod didn't u win best man one year or..?


btw.. who won most awards last year?

If we have a best newbie award, why not a best oldie award? Oldie being someone here for two years? THat's a lot of people I guess, but gets more people nominated! So long as we keep best nose, I'll be sure to supply the Buckie for the after party drunken queen 
We could also do best signature!!! There are some pretty damn good ones that are really clever or just hilarious Nod

Its fine Norc, Ringdrotten uses Jeremy Brett- so long as its associated with you, although you might want to go for something more um, feminine, for the red carpet pics.

A best breelander and making them ambassador is good idea but it would also cross over withth ebest newcomer category. Not sure if people thin thats a problem or not? What do you think?

"why not a best oldie award?"- Tin

We could have a sort of Fellowship Award for Long Standing Service.

Sinister makes sense as Bree-land ambassador since he's the only active mod over there, in addition to being active here, but that's for the Bree-landers to decide. Shrugging

And Ringo had better win an award this year! Mad Especially Best Male, which I know I'm voting for him in. Nod

Last year you had some model with a reeeeeeeeeeeeeeally low cut dress who was posing with Benedict, in order to fit the fancy dress theme.  Although with your artistic skills you could always draw your own avatar instead of relying on photoshop. Wink

Pretty sure it was Petty, followed by you, followed by a tie between myself and Thorin (the latter only being in the Movie Awards, of course).

I like this idea, especially since some of the stories are close to a year old now. Thumbs Up

Ooh, interesting!  You should draw up a list of prospective nominees.  And while we're suggesting categories, I like Cutest Couple, although with CC's flightiness I think we're down to only two Forumshire couples now. :PBut we could potentially have:

Petty and Figg
Eldo and Nora
Lance and CC
Orwell and Kafria (albeit only in Orwell's mind Very Happy)
Edit: Pretty and Mirabella too, if we're counting them Razz

That could be a lot of fun. :)And speaking of the Newcomers Award, I'll draw up a list of all the people who are eligible this year (to be updated with anyone who joins in the next month or so).

That would be very handy.
And if anyone wants the task of finding out all the creative corner stories that qualify since the start of the year that would be very handy too.

ok Very Happy but naaah... or well... we'll see, i found some ben+lady avatars for last years award Shrugging we'll see Wink what's wrong with a bit of cross dressing anyway.. my profiles says i am a boy (just because yolo)

A best breelander and making them ambassador is good idea but it would also cross over withth ebest newcomer category. Not sure if people thin thats a problem or not? What do you think?
i don't think it would cross though, we have newcomers from torn and other places, the "best breelander" is just to figure out who will represent Bree among  the ambassador award-nominees.

sounds appropriate, but how many are we talking about? those from the early start?

Maybe people who were around before the start of this forum? Or the first people on this forum when it was created? Because to be honest, I have trouble remembering when everyone showed up!
