Once again, it's time to make a big deal about each other's awesomeness! The
prodigious proclamation of love, justice and writing known in the Pnakotic
Manuscripts as the Two Thousand and Sixteen Rec.Arts.Comics.Creative Awards, AKA
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. Nominate as many as you wish, as long as you think someone out there
wants to 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, 2016
through to December 31st, 2016. 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, 2016 (might as well extend it a bit,
we usually need to anyway), 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 (oh, let's say) APRIL 15TH, 2016. Again, send in
nominations and election ballots to pwerdna at gmail.com.
