Nominations are now open for the 2014 Ongoing Worlds Medal for Superior Online Role Playing

Ongoing Worlds Medal for Superior Online Role Playing

Better known, of course, as the Squiddie Awards.  That’s right, we’re officially accepting Squiddie nominations now through February 10th.

If you’re not familiar with the Squiddies, last cycle’s winners can be found here.  The Squiddie Award is the top honor presented annually by Ongoing Worlds.  Each year it is bestowed to three different entities: one person, one sim/game, and one club.  Prior winners are not eligible for future awards.

Squiddies are 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 using the form below.  There is no limit to the number of nominations one can make, and self nominations are also permitted.  Each nomination should include a write-up of why the person, sim, or club is deserving.  The write-up should not exceed 250 words and should focus on one or more of the three areas mentioned above.

All nominations will be considered by the Ongoing Worlds Board of Advisors.  The winners will be decided by consensus and will be announced shortly after the nomination process ends.  Best of luck to everyone!  Be sure to get your nominations in by February 10th!

Nominations for the Squiddies are now closed.
