We want to create the perfect machinima community awards. By the community and for the community. Where the community nominates and votes for the winner. And the strong machinima communities take part in producing and supporting the event. We DONT want it to be an awards to a particular site which is why we’re trying to make it as little one site as possible. The awards itself supports the independent machinima communities out there such as FLS, MachinimaRevive, and CG. But is not specific to a particular one. If M.com ran an awards it would be ran by them only and the winners would be determined by them, which would lead to bias. We want it to be un-bias and open to everyone, to keep it fair.

You may nominate below. If you have questions, please private message me.
