Every year in June, we take time to recognise our members’ achievements and accomplishments during a week-long Award Ceremony. This is a core tradition of our group that began in 1996 – just two years after Fleet Admiral Tristan Wolf co-founded our community – and has been a staple every year since.
Here’s how it works: You nominate your fellow community members for awards that recognise their hard work and accomplishments in simming and OOC engagement throughout the previous year. A judging panel made up of staff members from the Captain’s Council will analyze your nominations and will select the winners.
You can get started now, learning more about the awards and thinking about what nominations you might want to submit for your fellow crew, and your ship or base’s staff members, by checking out these pages on our wiki:
- 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.
Nominations are open year-round on our Award Nominations form, but we’ll remind you in May when it’s time to really start submitting those nominations!
Until then, remember to bookmark any great sims you’re seeing and outline the list of people you know you want to nominate!
