The 2010 Musicbanter Awards - Nominations Round.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the open discussion for this years awards. Your opinions have been taken on board and a few changes made in the nomination categories.
All members now have the opportunity to vote for any MB member you wish in each category. This will then allow me to draw up a multiple choice list of candidates for each award based on the submissions of the community as a whole and will commence a voting round where you can vote for the member you want to win each award.
Please be honest in your voting and nominate the member you feel most accurately fits the descrption. This ensures that the vote is fair, without bias, and that your vote is counted but also that if the member you nominated doesnt make the list, you can still participate fully in the voting round and have your say.
Please send your nominations list to me via PM or if you wish to do so, post it here in this thread. You have until 21st December to get them in and the final voting round will run from 22nd -31st of December. The results will be posted in the new year.
