It is that time again. It is time to plan for this year's awards.

Topics for discussion:
How do we want to handle “For Your Consideration” submissions.
Do any categories need to change?

Also, I would like to have a strong partner to help me out for these awards. There might be long periods of time in July/August that I might not be available. Knowing this, I would like someone to volunteer to assist with the awards and isn't afraid to do anything needed like managing volunteers or counting ballots. Thanks!

Hey, I know it's too late this year…I wanted to bring this up sooner, but I'm a selfish arsehole and forgot.


But cant we give Ozoneocean some sort of like “DD Overlord” kind of recognistion award. That dude has put more time, effort and money out of his OWN pocket into this site than anyone else. If it weren't for him, it could have tanked way back when all the WOWIO shit went down. But against the odds, it's still here, and in no small part, thanks to him. And I dont think we as community have ever really gotten together to thank him for it.


It's starting top piss me off a little bit.

It has come up several times under the “Create Your Own Award” and “Community Achievement” for the Awards. Last year, it was recognized under community achievement.

So what categories do we get rid of this year?

Best Drama worked very well. The traditional/ non-traditional medium awards worked well.

There are so many new manga comics I'd be loathe to dump it just because only one comic gets enough votes for a nomination. It's the same with Best supporting character. Every year there is one that sticks in your head and everyone seems to vote for that one so one just happens runs away with the award.

I don't think the comic jam FYC has worked very well. Seemed kind of weak. And what do we do for a storyline this year?

I'm kinda sketchy about the whole Best Supporting Character thing.

Yeah, supporting characters are important and all, but given the way the DD voting process shakes out, you might as well be picking names out of a hat. It's an un-vote-able category.

I feel that the Comic Jam was ok, but it limited the number of participants. I think going back to free-for-all with a loose theme would be the best for participation. Some themes that were suggested for a contest in 2015 were:

SnowTheHedgehog: WOWIO or the Drunk Duck Corporation or whatnot need a new (insert job name), now's your chance to apply!
 
 
Kou The Mad: The Zombie Army of Ghenghis Khan invades and steal the awards.
 
 
CallMeTom: Plot idea 1: Do to budget cuts the Drunk Duck Awards will no longer provide gold plated caviar powered limos! Now all FYC's need to make there OWN way to the awards! 

 
KAM: Space aliens, or a mega corporation, or a mega corporation run by space aliens, is looking to take control of some intellectual property that they can use to promote their ideas and make money so they're analyzing various Drunk Duck comics as potential properties to buy and conquer the world with.
 
 
JustNoPoint: JustNoPoint tried to cheat and see who wins early. He creates a time machine that malfunctions sending everyone on DD to different time periods. Now it's up to them to find their way back to their own timeline and get to the awards!

As for categories to be eliminated…I will still have to look into how last year went. I think we are ok. Supporting Character does seem to always end up being won by popular vote rather than the traditional vote/judge.

Ozoneocean tearfully announces he has been fired by a power mad Quail (Duck being back in rehab) and it's up to posters to either support him or try out for his job…

It has been a while since I announced something for the Awards. Here is the agenda. I will try to have the comic up and running next week.

Planning ~ Now - July

FYC Pages Accepted ~ Now - July 8th

The Drunk Duck Award Design Contest
Submissions ~ June 4th - June 10th
Voting ~ June 11th - June 14th

Drunk Duck Awards Voting Opens ~ July 2nd - 29th

Tie Breakers (as needed) ~ July 30th - August 5th

Finalists Announced/Volunteers Assigned ~ August 6th - August 12th

Judging ~ August 13th - September 23rd

Emergency Wrap Up ~ September 24th - October 7th

The Ceremony Begins ~ October 9th

I don't think the For Your Consideration pages will have a set theme this year. So just send in a page for your comic/characters stating what award(s) you would like to be nominated for.

Please note that the agenda is subject to change as I'm a expecting a little Niccea in July.

oh wow! I just felt like it wasn't that long ago for the awards. I'm curious what is the for your consideration? is that for people to vote on your comic? or whose ever they post?

and OH NO! it in Aug. I won't be in country then. :( I wanted to draw at least one page again for the award thing like last year it was fun. and I tend to not be involved in a lot of stuff on here. (maybe I can try to get some assignment in July for one? so I can at least semi participate? ) I'll be in Korea july 31 to sept. 4th but I'd really like to draw at least one page for the awards thing again if possible. ^^" I know It may not be cause the judging thing.

The For Your Consideration (fyc) pages are for you to tell everyone why your comic is worth voting for what categories you want your comic to be considered.

Hense for your consideration. The chance to tell the world why your comic is better than any other. To beat an uncaring public over the head with why they have been so terribly wrong not to have read your comic all this time.

If done properly, even an unpopular comic with few readers can get lots of nominations. Like mine.

That's what I kind of figured. Although I think I need more cofindenxe to do one of those. Always have a embarrassed feeling about sharing my comics like that. But I admit I admire all those people that can do that! I have such low self esteem about my stuff, and that leads to me not updating weekly like I want.

But I still want to participate it was nice last year to draw at least one page and I did get to be introduced to lovely people on here and their comics.

Thank you very much for the answer bravo!
