2010 ENnies Booth Volunteer Recruitment!

We are looking for good people volunteer their time at the ENnies booth at GenCon this year. We are starting the recruitment early to give people plenty of time to work out their GenCon schedule, especially since event sign-up doesn’t begin until April. We would like two people to work each shift and as many as want to help tear down the booth. When scheduling your time, please plan to show up 10 minutes before it starts. Each volunteer should be ready to answer questions from passers-by about EN World and the ENnies. There will be a book at the booth with...

Awards and Fans and Publishers! Oh, my!

As the ENnie Awards enters its 10th year, we’ve been evaluating priorities and taking care to look at feedback from past years. So today we’re asking your opinion on a few issues. Your responses will be taken into consideration as we move forward. Please note that we cannot afford the time or money to create too many extra categories. Also in your response, please note if you are a publisher, fan, if you’ve submitted to the ENnies/plan on doing so, etc.: I. As the category structure is set out currently, anyone submitting product for the ENnies is...

So who are we missing?

May 8th has come and gone and the deadline for submissions has fallen by the wayside. If you haven’t already, check the Submissions Page above to see who’s there and who’s not. With that said, here’s what I would like from you; tell us who we’re missing. Who is not in the list that you wish was there? Judges. Fans. It doesn’t matter. Tell us who you would have liked to have seen submit their products. Keep two things in mind, please. 1) Some packages may still be on their way and 2) We have no control over who submits. Which brings me...

Read it, rank it, repeat.

I didn’t really have a review process in place when I became an ENnies Judge. I was new, after all, and hadn’t been through “the process” before. Of course, I have a process now (without some sort of review process, the submissions would be overwhelming). My process sort of came about organically. I have several piles that of sorted books. [As an aside, I have a box that contains all the non-book items and computer files are stored on my computer's desktop.] When I’m ready to read a new book, I grab something out of a pile. For those...

Only One More Month to Submit Products!

GenCon is getting closer and closer, folks, and so is the ENnie Awards Ceremony! The most important upcoming date, though, is May 8, 2010. This is the very last day that products will be accepted. This means that, if you’re submitting an electronic product, you need to submit it no later than May 8. If you are mailing products, the postmark must be no later than May 8 or you will just be wasting your money. Publishers: If you’ve been putting it off, now’s the time to start packaging/submitting! Fans: I ask that you go to the Submissions page on the...
