The Meteoriks Awards 2019

**The Meteoriks are back!**

Just like in the previous years, the Meteoriks awards set out to honor the best productions of the year 2018, and again we're striving for a very open process by asking everyone to apply to become part of our juries!

Like last year, we're going to hit the ground running with a full set of categories. In fact, last year's categories worked so well that after a brief consideration we opted to go with the same categories as last year. Hooray for stability! :D

**THE METEORIKS 2019 CATEGORIES**

***New Talent** - The group or individual scener that made their most memorable entrance in 2018
***Best Soundtrack** - The production with the best soundtrack
***Best Visuals** - The production with the most beautiful and impressive art style, graphics, effects, modeling, texturing, color scheme, ...
***Best Direction** - The production with the best overall cohesion, camerawork, atmosphere, pacing, story, ...
***Outstanding Technical Achievement** - The production that most dropped our jaws as it was previously deemed impossible
***Best Low-End Production** - The overall best production on a low-end platform
***Best Small High-End Intro** - The overall best production in 8k or less
***Best High-End 64k Intro** - The overall best production in 64k or less
***Best High-End Demo** - The overall best production between 64k and INFINITY!

And as always, we can't do this alone - we need your help!

**JURY DUTY**

"We" - right now that is just the Meteoriks organizing team. We cannot and should not decide on the award nominees and, ultimately, the laureates of the Meteoriks Awards for 2019, and that's why we need **you** to sign up to be part of the jury! You know you want to!

Just so you know what you're getting yourselves into, these are your duties as jurors:

* Review last year's productions in any way you see fit for your category
* Identify up to five nominees
* Choose a winner
* One member out of each jury should represent their category on stage during the awards show

Still interested? Great, go here: https://www.meteoriks.org/taking_part/juror - and do it before **Sunday, February 10th** as that's our deadline for juror applications!

**PROD SUGGESTIONS**

Our jurors will have to wade through a truckload of prods to find worthy nominees, so they can use all the help they can get in finding the true gems in 2018's productions. You can all help them by submitting the prods you think are super worthy of receiving a Meteorik at https://www.meteoriks.org/taking_part/recommend

And so it starts! Head on to https://www.meteoriks.org/ and start participating!

We're looking forward to hearing from you!

**Another call for jurors!**

Over the past two weeks, a lot of people applied to be jurors, and we're very happy with the participation already! <3

That said, we want **MOAR**. More jurors mean more opinions, more participation and ultimately better results! We'd like to have a jury of at least 27 people (nine juries of three persons each), and we're not there yet, so keep the applications coming!

There are no special requirements to becoming a juror - you don't need to be a scene superstar with a buttload of releases under your belt. All we need from you is an opinion, a couple evenings' worth of time and the will to make a decision together with your fellow jurors.

Just so you know what you're getting yourselves into, these are your duties as jurors:

* Review last year's productions in any way you see fit for your category
* Identify up to five nominees
* Choose a winner
* One member out of each jury should represent their category on stage during the awards show

If you're interested, drop everything you're doing and join us at https://www.meteoriks.org/taking_part/juror right now! It's still over a week to the deadline, but why wait and forget? ;)

And thanks for applying, menace! <3

**Juror application closed**

Whoa.

We called, and you responded massively! We received as many as twenty-nine juror applications this year - that's a lot of volunteers and it means we can form juries at ease, so **thank you all for applying** :)

We're diving right in and bringing our juries together now, so they'll have enough time to watch and discuss their way through 2018. We will get back to you with **nominations around the end of March.**

In the meantime, you can all help our jurors by submitting the prods you think are super worthy of receiving a Meteorik at https://www.meteoriks.org/taking_part/recommend

**Meteoriks 2019 - The Nominations!**

Our juries have spoken, and we are proud to present you with the list of Meteoriks 2019 Nominees! 2018 has been a good year for the demoscene, and we had to make some tough decisions to settle on only five nominees per category. These productions represent the best that 2018 had to offer in one or more categories, and we would like to thank and congratulate each and every one of their makers.
