RACCIES: 2012 First Nomination Ballot

FINALLY! Without further ado, it's the Two Thousand and Twelve
Rec.Arts.Comics Creative Awards, once spoken of in hushed whispers in the
halls of Gallifrey as the RACCies!
This year, based on feedback from last year's voting, the IMAGE TESTIMONIAL
TIMEPIECE (BATTERIES NOT INCLUDED) is no longer on the ballot! This, in
turn, has caused a temporal feedback surge that has caused the dates for
the nomination and voting process to be temporarily moved forward by one
The RACCies are a two-step process:
1.) Nominations. Open. The only restriction is that you may not nominate
yourself or any stories you worked on. (We will except crossovers under the
assumption it is the others' contributions you wish to recognize!) The
objective is to overlook *no* quality stories, yet still keep the ballot a
reasonable length, so nominate as many as you wish, but make sure that
*someone* would vote for them.
In addition to the categories listed below, participants are encouraged to
create 'special' (read 'comedic') awards to include in the balloting.
Include a winner with your award! We'll exert editorial fiat over these
nominations, keeping those nominated in the spirit of humor and dismissing
those nominated in the spirit of being a jerk.
Nominations are RACC-wide; all posted imprints, stories and authors are
eligible, as long as the stories in question were posted from January 1st,
2012 through to December 31st, 2012. It's highly recommended that each
author post a list of which of their works are eligible this year; you
might just jog someone's memory into voting for you!
This year, all nominations should be sent to pwerdna at gmail.com!
The nomination period ends FEBRUARY 28TH, 2013, so get them in now!
2.) Elections. This is crunch time! Pick three nominees from each
category and rank them 1st, 2nd, and 3rd (again, no voting for oneself or
one's stories). Track and field scoring in effect; that is, 1st is 5
points, 2nd is 3 points, and 3rd is 1 point. The nominee with the most
points wins. Democracy in action!
The election period ends APRIL 15TH, 2013. (Beware the ides of-- wait,
never mind) Again, send in nominations and election ballots to
pwerdna at gmail.com.
