RACCIES: 2016 Second Nomination Ballot
pwerdna at gmail.com
Sat Mar 11 12:40:55 PST 2017
Updated the dates, cos we need room for our dreams!
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 *has been extended* to APRIL 15TH, 2017! I want to
get in everybody's love for our characters, our stories, so let's make
room for it and give me all you've got!
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 (provisionally) on MAY 15TH, 2017. (Let me know
if that's not enough time!) Again, send in nominations and election
ballots to pwerdna at gmail.com.
