**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!
"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!
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!
