The Meteoriks are back!
Just like in the previous years, the Meteoriks awards set out to honor the best productions of the year 2016, and again we're striving for a very open process from the beginning by letting everyone submit their ideas for award categories!
Only the award categories of New Talent and Public Choice will be fixed, all other categories will be picked by the jury from a pool of proposals. And that's two places where you come in!
Last year we had great proposals like "That's not possible on this platform!" that we would not have come up with by ourselves, so we rely on all of you to keep our categories fresh. You can submit further award categories via the Meteoriks website: https://www.meteoriks.org/categories
The deadline for proposing award categories is Thursday, January 19th.
"We" - right now that is just the Meteoriks organizing team. We cannot and should not decide on the categories, the award nominees and, ultimately, the winners of the Meteoriks Awards for 2017, 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:
* Decide on a set of 10-ish categories out of the submissions amongst all 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 Monday, January 23rd as that's our deadline for juror applications!
And so it starts! Head on to https://www.meteoriks.org/ and start participating!
This is going to be fun!

Go ahead and propose it! No categories without your input ;)
(Though I happen to know we have "best soundtrack" in the moderation queue already.)

nah, you guys are great at what you do without my input :) Was just curious about the possible explanation, that's all.

The explanation is that when you checked, nobody had suggested it yet -- and while we may be great at what we're doing (thanks!), without your input of category proposals we'd be nothing as we're crowdfunding our categories from almost-scratch. So keep em coming =)

**DEADLINE WARNING:** Submit your Award Categories by Thursday!
Still have that ingenious award category in your head that you were surely getting around to submitting any time soon? Do you keep wondering why nobody submitted "Best use of duck.3ds" yet?
Well, you have <quake announcer voice>THREE DAYS LEFT</quake announcer voice>. Category submission ends this Thursday, 2017-01-19, 23:59, so hurry up and get your idea in!

**CATEGORY SUBMISSIONS CLOSED**
The deadline for submitting award categories is over, and we ended up with 29 candidate categories thanks to your creative and wild ideas! Check them out: https://www.meteoriks.org/categories
There are a lot of really good ideas in there, and we're happy to see that they go far beyond the usual party categories of size and platform. It's going to be an interesting awards process!
**BECOME A JUROR**
We can't have all these categories in the awards show, of course, so we'll have to whittle them down to about ten-ish.
Do you have strong opinions on which category should make the final cut? Do some of the categories resonate with your taste in productions? Apply as a juror! You don't need to be a certified demoscene expert(TM), an opinion is all you need -- and we can really use the help.
The deadline for juror applications is on Monday night, Jan 23, 23:59, so drop whatever you're doing and apply here: https://www.meteoriks.org/taking_part/juror
