TheSprout Awards 2012: Enter Now
Well citizens of the Sproutiverse it's that time of year again...
TheSprout Awards are returning for the third year and it's the night where we all gather in an oddly-shaped room and celebrate all the good work everyone has done over the past year, but with 9-12 people celebrating slightly more as they get a certificate and some prizes after winning an award. But we're all winners really...
Anyway TheSprout Awards 2012 are to take place on Saturday 31st March 2012. We're still ironing out some details, OK we're ironing out a lot of details but that doesn't mean we can't get started on the most important aspect - the nominations.
Our categories this year are:
- Best Sprouter (Best overall contributor to theSprout)
- Best Newcomer (Joined since the last awards ceremony on 31/3/11)
- Most Involved Sprouter (Who puts in the most leg work on theSprout?)
- Most Useful Article (Local info or advice or something that changed your view on a subject... useful stuff!)
- Best Creative Article (Poem, short story, serial etc.)
- Best Review (Film, theatre, restaurant, music, game, sports, you know reviews of stuff)
- Video of the Year
- Funniest Article
- Lord of the Comments (who leaves the best comments? Or maybe one comment in particular stands out?)
- Best Neck-cessory/Hair On The Night Award (to be awarded on the night naturally - that’s the dress code, wear what you want but there’s a prize for crazy hair/neck-cessory - that's a tie, scarf, shawl, anything that can be worn around your neck)
Want to nominate someone or something?
