RPGFO Quill Awards

Explanation of the Awards
Within the RPGFO world, we have two types of awards. We have our monthly and annual awards. These awards are aimed at highlighting and congratulating outstanding effort and writing within the RP world, in the aims of bringing the focus back to writing on the forum, and to help improve the quality of writing in our little community.

Monthly Awards: The Silver Quills
The monthly awards are designed to encourage people to enter the awards. Any work awarded a Silver Quill is automatically nominated for the Golden Quills. To nominate your work, you must meet the following criteria:

:greenbullet: For written works: It must be posted within the month you’re applying for. I.E. if you post it in July, you can nominate for July. You have until the end of the month to post and to get your nominations in. You will be required to provide a link to the written work in your application. You are always required to provide a justification as to why you’re entering this particular work. One Silver Quill will be awarded per category, as well as an Honorable Mention.

:greenbullet: For Roleplays: Your RP must START in the month. It doesn’t matter when the OOC gets posted, your RP must have active participation for at least 2 pages. If you post your OOC thread in late July, but your RP doesn’t start until August, then you nominate for August, not July. You will be required to provide a 300 - 500 word spiel about your RP and the direction you hope it takes, as well as provide a link to the IC thread, not the OOC. Using your RP summary from your OOC is a good idea. You are always required to provide a justification as to why you’re entering this particular work. Why do you feel that this work deserves a quill.

For both of these categories, you will need to fill out the respective nomination forms. These can be found in the Awards thread.

Annual Awards: The Golden Quills
The Annual Awards are the Grammys or the Oscars or the Academy Awards of RPGFO. All work that has received a Silver Quill will be automatically nominated for a Golden Quill. Those works which received an Honorable Mention will also be eligible for nomination. These awards will be voted upon and decided on in December. The Awards will be given out at the end of December.

The Golden Quill awards will encompass December of the previous year, right through until November of the current year, for the purpose of allowing the Awards to be held in December of the current year.

Mod of the Month and Mod of the Year
Mod of the Month awards are self explanatory and are awarded with an Emerald Quill. Mod of the Month application forms can be found in the Awards thread also. You’ll be asked to explain why you feel this Mod deserves nomination, and also to have the nomination “secondedâ€

Judging and Judges

The hardest part of this process is going to be selecting winners. To do that, I'm going to need some help.

I need to put together a Judging Panel, so I am asking you, our members, to help. I would love it to be members who are active within the section in question, and who are active across the forum in general.

In the event those who are selected as judges have an entry in their category, the moderator of that section or a Global will step in to take their place.

For the Annual Awards, the entire Panel will come together to make their selections.

The Judging Panel needs to have a representative from the following categories.

Judging Panel
Gideon
Original Works Representative
Traditional Fantasy Representative
Modern Fantasy Representative
Science Fiction Representative
Realistic RPS Representative
Mature RPs Representative

From the time of this posting, you will have 48 hours to get your expressions of interest in to be a Judge.

All you have to do is PM me with the subject "RPGFO Quill Awards Expression of Interest" and in your PM let me know which section you're interested in.

Let's get this done so that we can actually give out Awards for July!

Hi there everyone,

The RPGFO Quill Awards are up now, and because of how late in the year this has been finally ready, you can nominate and vote for any RP, Original Work, or Character that has been started this year!

We are also going to be doing our Nominations for our Globals and our Moderators at this time as well. More information is in the nomination thread.

So head on over to the nominations thread for the rules and nomination forms and get those nominations in. You've got until the 30th of September.
