All right guys, here's where it starts getting exciting! I'm a bit late, but it's finally time to start sending in your nominations! :D

RULES FOR NOMINATING

- Nominations are open as of now, and will close after 14 days from the date of this post.

- Copy and paste the list above to a 'new message' in your private messaging system and fill in. Please try to fill in your ballot as completely as possible. If you have looked over your ballot carefully, and browsed the forums for your picks, but still can’t fill in nominees for a particular category, it’s fine. Just make sure to fill in your ballot as well as you possibly can!

- Choose your top 3 preferences for the categories you would like to nominate for (first being your most favorite, second is your second most favorite, and so on.) A list of the nominees for each category will be released at a later date, from which you’ll be able to make your final votes.

- You must send your nominations to me OR The Star Swordsman via a private message. Send your votes to only one of us - we will combine our results after the nominations close. Do not post them in this thread. Please keep an eye on your inbox for a few days after you have sent your nominations just in case we need clarification for anything you have written.

- If you wish to nominate, you must have signed up to the forums on or before November 6, 2011. There is no minimum sign-up date for nominees/award winners, only voters.

- All nominees/winners must be a member of this forum and the fanworks that you nominate for must have been posted on Pixar Planet from January 30, 2011 onwards, which was the closing date for last year’s nominations.

- You may nominate avatars and signatures that are either Pixar or non-Pixar. However, the rule is that the avatar/signature worn by the member must've been created by a Pixar Planet member.

- Try to be as specific as possible when nominating. When nominating a signature or avatar try to post the image in the message, if you can, otherwise tell us the name of the signature or avatar and describe what it looks like in detail, and also the name of the person who created it. Better yet, link to the page in the person's graphics thread with the graphic in it. When nominating fanfiction, just the name of the fan fiction and username of the person who wrote it is fine.

- We are aiming to keep the nominations and awards as private as possible, so please do not talk about you who are nominating/voting for on these forums. DO NOT ask, beg or bribe people to nominate or vote for you/your work. If we find out you are trying to influence others then your votes will be dismissed, and you and your work may be kicked out of the running for any awards. We are serious about this - no cheating! Let's make this a fair contest and the nominees/winners a surprise for everyone.

- Here is the For Your Consideration Thread, where some members have posted one example of their best work in several categories (for the art-related awards only.) However, you are more than welcome to nominate work that a member has not put forward for consideration in that thread.

- Fan fiction can be a work-in-progress as long as there is at least one chapter that was posted from January 20, 2011 or later.

- Each of the artwork categories pertain to each of the sub-forums in the 'Fandom' section of the forums, so wherever you find the artwork is placed on the forum would be a good indicator of its appropriate awards category above.

- Since this is 'Pixar' Planet, all of the art nominations must be related to Pixar, except for the two non-Pixar awards (which must be anything other than Pixar) and the signature and avatar award (which can be either Pixar or non-Pixar.) 'Best Thread' and 'Best Game' can be either Pixar or non-Pixar, too.

- The 'Best New Member of 2011' must have signed up between January 30, 2011 and up to and including December 30, 2011 to be eligible for nomination. Make sure to check underneath people's usernames at what date they signed up before nominating them for 'Best New Member'.

- This year, the Best Artist (Traditional) and Best Artist (Other) categories have been changed to Best Fan Artist (Pixar and non-Pixar) and Best Original Artist (non-fandom, original artist). This is based on members' feedback and to reflect increasing the trend of combining digital and traditional mediums in contemporary artwork

- Best Fan Commentary and Fan Commenter has been removed due to no new commentaries this year.

- The members for you to nominate from for the "Best Pixar Planet Staff Member" category are...
