You may remember a few weeks ago when we let you know that the yearly Awards Ceremony has been moved from December to June of each year. Well, with the next ceremony coming soon, it’s time to start preparing your award nominations!
Members across the fleet are encouraged to nominate their fellow crew-mates and ship staff for awards to recognize their great work in simming and OOC activities. Every member of the fleet is allowed to make nominations for the following award classes:
- General awards: Any member can receive a general award. One general award, per vessel, is allowed per ceremony.
- Duty Post awards: Duty post awards are awards given to individuals in a designated duty post, department, or division. Only one recipient from the entire fleet is selected for recognition with a duty post award each year.
- Special awards: A special award is an OOC award that is awarded during the annual fleet awards ceremony. Any member can receive a special award. However, only one of each award is allowed per ceremony.
- Staff awards: A staff award is an OOC award reserved for officers ranked commander and above. Only one of each award is given per ceremony.
General and Duty Post award nominations generally require a sim attachment to the nomination. All nominations require a well thought-out explanation for the nomination. Keep in mind that in most cases, your award nomination may be vying against another nomination for someone else. If two members of your fleet are nominated for the Prantares Ribbon, your nomination will have to be good enough to ensure your candidate wins!
So start thinking about those nominations now, and get read for the nomination period to open in mid-May. Bookmarking great sims and drafting some rough nomination text will help you get a jump-start.
