    Strawbary asked me to help out with information threads and reminders for this event. I figured the first thing I should do is make a master info thread so that you can find all the details you need in one place.

    The 3rd Annual NorthEast FanForce Awards Ceremony
    will once again be taking place in conjunction with Pittsburgh Comicon on Saturday April 28th, 2007.
    Exact time and if there will be a dinner again are still TBD.

    Pittsburgh Comicon will be taking place in Monroeville, PA from April 27th-29th, 2007.
    The Star Wars Association of Pittsburgh (SWAP) has once again volunteered to host this event as well as coordinate fan activites at the con itself. Click here to see the planning thread for the convention fan table, Star Wars panels and more.

    Award Categories
    Here are the categories/awards that all chapters in the NE will be judged on:

    C-3P0 award - This award will go to the chapter who has the most active forum on the FF boards (i.e. most talkative).

    R2-D2 Award - This award goes to the chapter with the best website.

    Chewie Award - This award goes to the chapter with the best fan film. This will be viewers choice. The voting will be up to the members in the NE region. Please PM strawbary a link to your fan film where it can be viewed so I can link that to the boards once this is announced on FF.

    Luke Award - This award goes to the chapter who has grown not only in numbers (i.e. member count) but has also shown an overall improvement in their group as a whole.

    Padme Award - This award goes to best Chapter Rep in the Region. This CR must show strong leadership skills and overall great communication amongst their chapter and is an active voice with FF.

    Leia Award - This award goes to the chapter who has been actively involved in charity events within their own community and has contributed to their chapter hometown in some way.

    Queen Amidala Award - This award goes to the chapter with the best costumes overall as a group. In order to compete for this you will need to submit a group costumed photo. That photo can be sent to fanforceawards@yahoo.net.

    Vader Award - This award goes to the chapter with the best forum banner.

    Yoda Award - Our highest award is a service award. This will go to the chapter/person in the NE region who has shown exceptional dedication to their love of Star Wars and has consistently contributed in the FF community in some way.

    HanSolo Award Fanfiction Award. This is a NEW category this year. This is Original Fanfiction written by a Fanforce Member. You must be a verified Member of a NE Chapter to submit an entry. See details on specific rules on post below.

    There may be other awards as well. For example in the past there have been the Liaison and Mon Mothma Awards. The Liaison award was awarded to someone who endeavors to bridge the gap between FanForce and other SW organizations. And, the Mon Mothma award was awarded to an outstanding event planner.

    Rules:

    1. Anyone can nominate a chapter/person in the NE region for a specified award. Those nominations will be taken into consideration by the G/RSAs when they vote.
    2. All awards will be voted upon by FF GSA's/RSA's with the exception of the Chewie (fan film) Award. That is viewer?s choice.
    3. ALL NOMINATIONS AND VOTES MUST BE SUBMITTED VIA PM to strawbary.
    Please do not post your votes or nominations on the boards. We would like to keep this a surprise for the awards.
    4. Deadline for group photo submissions is Wednesday February 28th. Deadline for all other nominations is Friday March 16th. All nominees will be announced at the awards ceremony.

    Strawbary has asked me to take charge of the fan fiction catagory. Rules are as follows:


    • Fics must conform to TF.N rules about fanfic, which can be found here.


    • Fics must be emailed to NYCitygurl at nycitygurl08@yahoo.com as a Word document attachment by March 15.


    • Fics should not be more than 10,000 words in length.


    • Fics must be original to the author, who must credit any other person from whom the fic author has borrowed material.


    • Fics may have been previously posted on the internet. A fic does not have to have been written with the past year.


    • Authors must be a member of a North East Region FanForce. When the fic is submitted, the author must include which NE Fanforce she/he belongs to and their screenname.


    • Fics will be judged by RSAs and a panel of FanFiction moderators.
