Announcing the Ongoing Worlds Medal for Superior Online Role Playing
That’s right, we’re now accepting nominations for the Ongoing Worlds Medal for Superior Online Role Playing (also known as the Squiddie Award). What is this new award, you might ask? Simply put, it is the pinnacle award presented by our organization. Each year it will be bestowed upon three different entities: one person, one sim/game, and one club. They will then be entitled to use the honorific Superior Online Role Playing Laureate (or Squiddie Laureate).
Squiddies will be presented for exemplifying one or more of the following characteristics, primarily during the previous calendar year:
- Excellence in role playing
- Originality and innovation
- Facilitating the community experience
Nominations may be made by anyone (self nominations are permitted). Each nomination should include a write-up of why the person, sim, or club is deserving. The write-up should focus on one or more of the three areas mentioned above and not exceed 250 words.
All nominations will be considered by the Ongoing Worlds Board of Advisors. Winners will be decided by consensus and will be announced in late January or early February. Once an entity has received a medal, they will no longer be eligible for future awards. Best of luck to everyone!
The closing date for nominations was January 26th. Nominations are now closed. We’ll be announcing the winners soon!
