(( Reposted from In World Message …. content partially edited for clarity  ))
(( List of winners to follow shortly in Pages ))

24 October 2014

Via Ariadne Fall:

Firstly we’d like to thank the Team who worked for us on The People’s Choice Awards
Thor Whytchwood
Lani Yuhura
Jai Raghilda
Jubilynn Lane
Senet Blackburn
Rheykn Ashbourne
Thank You so much, & with those thanks we also owe you an apology, you put in hard work, excellent work… to help the Con be better, and we let you down.

Change can be a hard thing, I’m sure all of us have had that familiar moment of irrational defiance in our own RL & SL lives…  and we’re sorry too, that a longtime friend of the convention like Thor, can’t see his way clear to be just grateful, that the fun thing he & his group started became such a success, it earned its own Team & that Team made the People’s Choice better & better…  we truly believe our best work comes from collaboration.

I want to assure you all…
We wish Thor & the Asgard Command nothing but the best, we welcome them as convention exhibitors & event hosts, & we hope they wish us luck as we continue on with the People’s Choice Awards into a bright future of Battles in The Ballots!

…but we owe the greatest apology to You, our alliance membership.
The people voted in greater numbers than ever before, and the vote was more varied than ever before… making for an exciting set of awards & making wins by wide acclaim all the more meaningful.
& We were all denied a party and a fun night in fancy dress, but you exhibitors who received nominations were denied your rightful acclaim…

We fix that BS right now….

* grins*

For presentation purposes we’ve only included those nominations that got a “seconded”, although the complete list of things that got votes is available without tallies and in no particular order, and makes for very fun reading.

In most categories we will be awarding 1st, 2nd, & 3rd…

And,  Without further delay, our first category Award, Best Costuming (Booth or Event)
The nominees are,
The Hanging Mountains of Pandora, The Milky Way Cabaret, & Stargazer Creations…  & no other nominees were seconded, so this one should be quick & easy….

1st Place Milky Way Cabaret!
ummmmm…..   we only received one presentation nomination for Best ah, it would be Actress.
