Consider your nomination
Pay close attention to the box titled “your reason for this nomination,” which allows you to justify your reasons for nominating the individual. You don’t have to write a lot in this section, but we do appreciate a well-written response which allows the screening officers to decide whether or not your candidate is truly deserving of this reward.
Remember that others may nominate different people for the same award, so your nomination will be used to try and decide which person should receive the award. The stronger your reasoning for nomination, the more likely it is that your candidate will be the chosen person for the award.
For some awards, you will see a box prompting you for a sim to add to your nomination. While this is not required, we strongly encourage you to consider adding a sim to help strengthen your nomination.
Frequently Asked Questions
- Who can I nominate for an award? If you’ve attained the rank of Ensign, you can nominate anyone else in the group for any award.
- What about people who are on LOA – can they receive an award? Players who are on LOA status (or retired or AWOL) are not eligible to win an award. If you nominate someone who goes into LOA/retired status between the time of your nomination and the award presentation, they may be deemed ineligible. If a player is nominated for an award and then returns before an award presentation, it will really just depend on timing. The awards committees will sort it out, so when in doubt, it’s better to just nominate the person if they’re deserving!
- Can I nominate two people for the same award? Yes, if you think they’re both deserving.
- Can I nominate a staff member for a General category award? Yes.
- Can I nominate my Captain or First Officer for a Staff category award? Yes, please do!
