1. Nomination round has started!!!
Earliest End: 19.10.09

We'll start to collect possible Nominations from now on, during 2 weeks, so more people can join and we've time to search, announce and read comic projects.
The nomination time CAN be longer. Keep in mind, these are NO official nominations yet, just a first overview.

The list is open end,probably, more rounds will follow to decrease number. Who will be nominated finally, the growd decides in round 2. So, it doesn't help you, to nominate every single project you made, choose those, you think, are best.

-You can nominate different projects in each category, also your own. For best episode and best building choose your real favourite episodes. Best is not more than 3 of a series.
-The series/entry should be made in the past 12 months
-Comic projects made after the nomination start are not allowed. (so, after 6th october because of time zones, 24 hours left)
-The entrys have to fit in the category
-Please, give all information, the category's opening post ask for, links aren't needed but helpful. But still write information down. (easier for the academy)
- nominations only in the prepared topics! You find here:


-"Short story”:
The best Short story/ Comic Miniseries, storytelling moc. The project has to be finished/ not a short chapter of a running story. Name project and creator.

-"Best written episode":

-"Best series adventure/other"
Name the best adventure/ comedy/ modern life series. It can play in our normal world, dealing about superheros, agents, adventurers, normal people, whatever but no sci-fi and no classic fantasy. Say, what you think, is best in storyline, humor and all. Name series and creator.

-"Best visual work and special effects":
Which comic/comic series has the best visual work? Accents can be photoshop effects, simple lightning techiques or just outstanding camera work. Name series and creator.

Another Thing:
If you want to post your comics as examples to the group, please only add ONE episode a series, so everybody can find them quickly and without masses of sites to search. There are many comic groups to post your complete series like "Tall Tales" or "Comics and Short stories"
Of course, if a special episode or building is nominated, you can add them , too.

Questions? Ask in the general discussion or open a separate topic.

Please, ONLY vote in the official voting/nomination topics started by me.
For now, the 1st choice is still open.

After the deadline, the final voting for ALL Nominations in all categories will be opened.
IMPORTANT: Nominations, votes etc. posted in wrong topics can't be counted. I want this award a fair place so i won't /can't open existing rules or deadlines here and there because that wouldn't be fair for other contributers/nominees.
