The First Nominee For The 2013 EVN Of The Year Is...
The Rules of The Game
- I will begin accepting your nominations right now. The way it works for those who were around for the 2011 Best Ofs is that it’s Editor’s Choice based of reader nominations. So the great EVN community can send what they think should be recognized to firstname.lastname@example.org and from that last I will craft the creme de la creme. (I have no idea how to say Creme de la Creme by the way, so be happy this is being typed.) The deadline to do this will be December 31st and the final list of nominees will be released the follow day, January 1st.
- All winners will be decided by moi. Please be respectful of this decision and those that will be nominated for an award in all public comments made on the site.
- Certain categories will require a unique qualifier in order for a visual novel to be nominated. This is not an attempt to heap awards onto any one person, group or visual novel. This is simply an effort to include everyone that could possible have interacted with the development of a visual novel. Also, please keep in mind that the lack of a qualifier in one category doesn't necessarily mean a visual novel won't be nominated for another. All visual novels nominated will be judge by the exact same itinerary.
- And since we're on the subject, the winners of each category will be chosen on their Presentation, Story, Ambition and Enjoyment Level while playing the game. These things are unique to each nominee as well as to each reader. Please keep that in mind on January 4th when we release the winners of our Best Of awards.
- There is no trophy or other award signifying the winner of each category. Unless you plan to pay for one, please do not hassle the editor about the lack of a physical award.
