Hey guys, quick announcement. I know a lot of magazines do this, and there are a ton of award shows all through the year, but I want to do my own awards.
I want help though, so I need fan participation on this! I want to have suggestions for several catagories. You can even suggest catagories. Below are what I have in mind, and I'm thinking whoever gets suggested the most defentily get put into a catagory. Then on a set date (I'm thinking December 1, or possibly the 31st), I'll announce the winners, and post speical graphics for each band. Possibly even make some form of virtual award.
Obviously it won't get very big, as nobody famous knows who I am yet, but I will even try to bring their winnings to the attention of the bands. Below are some catagories and bands I have in mind. I don't have a lot yet, I need to put a lot of hard work into this, and need suggestions.

If you have any suggestions for something in a catagory, or a catagory itself, please submit them to me. It may not get chosen, but all will be considered. :) The easiest would be on the facebook page, but there is a contact form on the 'About The Creator' page.
I'd like suggestions to be in by Thanksgiving (November 24, 2011), and then I'll start the voting by December 1. I'm leaning towards announcing the winners on New Years Eve, so I can end the year right.
