January is awards time

The Ursa Major Awards are now accepting nominations for anthropomorphic works published in 2008. Yeah, it's furry stuff. Look, I'm sorry, I have a story eligible. Some people hope for a Nebula or Hugo, I just want my weredeer story nominated for a furry award.

You have to enroll (i.e. give your email so they can send you a key code) and then you have to give your name when you go to nominate, but that's just so people can't ballot stuff. They're taking nominations until the end of February. Voting starts in mid-March. You can see the list of recommended titles to make your choices from, but you don't have to go by that list. You also don't have to nominate in every category. I usually just nominate for movies, books, stories, and magazines, and usually only a few per category (you're allowed to choose up to five).

So make your voice heard! No one will know you had anything to do with this, I swear. You can wash your hands afterwards.

you got my vote and so did Wallace and Gromit. I love those cartoons.

Wallace & Gromit are great!

You didn't have to nominate me, but thanks! I hope I don't get disqualified for posting the link or something stupid like that.

they do this stuff for all the other awards, I don't see why you have to be above self promotion.

I wouldn't think so, but I don't know how picky they are. But hey, I didn't even mention the name of my story in the blog, so I didn't exactly say, "go vote for me!" or anything.

Now, if I am nominated, I will so totally say "go vote for me!" but that's different. :)

You have my vote as well. Wallace and Gromit ROCK!

Thanks!

My little nephews are Wallace & Gromit addicts. They can watch (for instance) The Wrong Trousers over and over and over and over and over. But then, so can I.
