It is often said that you should never dwell on the past, but as well as looking to the future, we at tMP feel it's important to celebrate past events, both here on the site, and in the general banding world. Some of you will, no doubt, remember our previous awards, so as we approach our 3rd birthday, we are now going to open up the nomination categories for this year. These nomination threads will run till Friday 2nd December, and on Saturday we will close and collate all the nominations and you will then be able to vote on the top 10 nominated entries in each category, up until midday on Saturday 17th December. The results of all the polls will be collated, and announced on Sunday 18th December. Here are the rules (same as for previous awards!): The Judges decision is final - judges on these awards are tMP Moderators and SiteAdmin - though the polls will determine ultimate winners... The "3 Years Live" awards are meant as a good 'ol banding fun - please don't be offended if you don't win. There will be a maximum of 10 nominations entered in each category - if more than 10 nominations are received, then the award judges will determine which nominations are carried forward and entered into the final polls. Nominations will be accepted up until Friday 2nd December - voting in online polls will commence on Saturday 3rd December. Voting will close at 12:00 midday on Sat 17th December with the results being announced and posted on tMP on Sunday 18th December Anonymous nominations can also be made by PM to one of the judges. The judge will then enter the nominee in the category. The categories have, this year, been split up this year into two categories - 'Fun Awards' and 'Banding Awards' - nominations will be accepted for all categories apart from Award #19 - 'The Website of the Year' - the nominations for this award will be the previous winners of the Website of the Month contest; and Award #20 - the 'tMP Special Award - for outstanding contribution to the banding movement' - the winner of this award will be selected by the tMP Team.
