How the Awakening community awards work
Why a community based awards? Why not? How often have you looked at the nominees in an awards ceremony and thought someone vital/deserving was missing? Yes, we’ve all done it. These community awards give you the opportunity to have your say…. Before the voting begins, when you can have your say again!
Nominations – Dec 26th – Jan 3rd
The community has 8 days to make their nominations. At the end of this period we process all of the nominations. Obviously we omit any silly nominations, ie Mickey Mouse etc. Due to the volume of submissions we aren’t able to include every nomination in the voting stage. Those nominees that have been nominated many times will automatically be moved into the voting stage. If you are nominating somebody that you feel really deserves to be included but might get overlooked,
please email us and let us know why you feel they should be included.
Voting – Jan 8th – Jan 18th
Once the nominations have been processed and sorted, the voting phase will begin. It takes us 5 days to process the nominations and ready the voting phase. The community is then encouraged to vote for their favourites in each category! The voting phase remains open for 10 days.
At the end of this period the voting is closed and the votes are counted.
Results – Announced approx Jan 23rd
Although it only takes us a day to physically count the votes, it takes us an extra few days to create (code) the results pages.
Results are announced no earlier than the 23rd of January.
