For that i would create a separate group where nominees can be nominated and people vote for. As Moc entries only ONE example of each nominated comic series is allowed. I'm not sure how to do exactly but my main ideas:
-Everyone can join and nominate maximal 3 entrys/mocs for each category. The most mentioned 3-5 comics get official nominated, then people will vote.
-After the election is finished, someone/or me/we together/whatever build the award show
-This could be made once a year, for 2009 maybe december or January 2010 for the last 12 month period.
1.Short story (comics/stories including one moc/post or just a limited amount of chapters)
2.Best Comic episode (only one chapter/episode of a series)
3.Best Comic Series (maybe split in fantasy/sci-fi/other?)
4.Best set decoration (great builds of diorama, vignette or in generell good build comics)
5.Best visual and special effects (depends on how many nominates would fit, but to be honest, we all know who would win? Means photoshop, painted backgrounds, natural light effects and/or camera work.)
6.Amazing cliffhanger (open end of a chapter/episode)
Tell me what you think and make proposes, i may create a fitting group with the final rules and think, it would be fun if the Tall Tales group as best Lego Comic group is sponsoring this official. Permalink

I love this idea! may I help out in the organizing? I'd love to help host a comic awards thing!
Ok, then you'll become my first academy member. I need some helpers more, there's much to read and moderate if we want to handle it right. I'm still not sure about the voting. Maybe we should have a small academy group which decides the nominations before letting all moccers vote? There're many comics this year and so it's better if some are searching and reading many before everyone calls for his personal favourite and we'll have dozens of comics or just the most popular to list.
oh, and i would like to name it "TTA-Tall Tale Awards", nice or? Permalink
I think your current "Tall Tale Awards 2009" is a nice group name.
This seems to be a fine idea if you guys are willing to go ahead and do it all the way through. This reminds me of the Golden-Scorpion Comic thing back at SSLF where I prowl every once and a while, except this is more democratic (no offense to the admins/mods at SSLF)
For your "Academy" Group of judges or whatnot, make sure that the people on it are certainly qualified and willing to do their job. The same implications goes for managing this event. If it gets out of hand and degenerates to immature guys being on the Academy just because of favoritism or if the thing just falls apart because its poorly organized or some arguments break out, then that will certainly take the fun out of it and I will frown upon ideas like this in hindsight (just a warning). I've made a post in the Tall Tale group giving some more detailed suggestions about organization and other tidbits.
But otherwise, like I said, if we can get it figured out and working and finished so that it's all great, I'm all for it! Permalink
The first Tall Tales award 2009 for Lego comics will start soon and needs people for nominations and voting.

The official nomination rounds will start october, but you can still contribute now before the final rules are set. Please don't make nominations before the deadline. Permalink

Just a tip: Split it in more issues instead of adding in one post. It's very hard to load this way.
You know, I had it that way, and then I went and turned them all into one page... I thought it would clean up my MOCpage... IT did do that, but I think it kinda' lost all interest from other readers... I hope to get my personal site launched sooner then later and then I'll post the pages there and the issues here.

So, a question regarding the 'short stories' type; does said story have to be A: finished and B: in moc form?
Because I've got this WIP in the Random Literature group...
The short story should be already finished. It can be a single moc or a miniseries of a small amount of issues and a closed plotline. It has to be something with Lego of course. Nominationtime for this year is already over, so if you have something still running to complete in 2010, it can enter next year's voting.
[Current voting continues up to 6th of december, so last chance to give votes for your favourite nominees] Permalink
