The Awards Season Continues: Squiddie Time!

Ongoing Worlds Medal for Superior Online Role Playing

Ongoing Worlds Medal for Superior Online Role Playing

We recently concluded the Tournament of Simulations (ToS) and presented two more Ongoing Worlds Community Honors (OWCH).  However, it’s now time for the pinnacle award bestowed by Ongoing Worlds: The Squiddie!  (Officially, the Ongoing Worlds Medal for Superior Online Roleplaying.)  If you’re not familiar with the award, check out our past winners:

Here’s how it works:  Each year we present Squiddies to three different entities: one person, one sim/game, and one club.  Prior winners are not eligible for future awards.  Squiddies are bestowed 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 concentrate on one or more of the three areas mentioned above (focusing on actions and events of 2015).

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.  Nominations will be accepted through May 31st.

Good luck to everyone!
