Okay everyone, get excited. Coming soon to a forum near you, i.e. here, will be the (Un)Official 2018 Clip The Apex Awards. What's that I hear you ask? Well it's much as it sounds. It's an awards ceremony for the forum. It will be a date in the diary type event and I'll expect you all to be in formal attire when they're handed out, obviously. At the end of the season, when F1 is over for another year and we all face that long wait for the team launches and the excitement of testing (I use the word excitement loosely). What better way to fill those empty days and indeed weeks than to come here and take part in the awards? As Sponsor, host, director, and general dogsbody for said awards, I will be putting up a list of the awards up for grabs after the last race in Abu Dhabi. I will then open nominations and this is the part where they become all about you, the good forumers of Clip The Apex. I will ask you to come in and either post your nominations for each award on the forum in the thread provided, or if you're shy/sneaky they can sent to me by private message. Once nominations close I will then add up who has most in each category and then we all vote. I say we, but as is tradition in these events (these are not my first awards) I won't be casting a vote unless there is a tie break at the end of the allowed voting time. Should there be a tie break, I will cast the deciding vote. Well there has to be some perk to doing all the work associated with these things. As well as voting on the main awards, I will also be asking for nominations for 'Special Awards'. These are as they sound, special awards for someone or some people who deserve a shout out. Given the amount of members here and the fact this could get out of hand I'm afraid I will have to limit the Special Awards to one per member, so get your thinking caps on for who you think deserves such an honour. To give you an example, The Clip The Apex Superhero Award: Awarded jointly to Brogan and cider_and_toast for all the work they put into this forum to make it a great place for us all to visit. Get the idea? Good. So get excited, and start thinking about what special award you'd like to nominate and to whom. I will ask for the nominations for the special awards when the official list of awards goes up for nominations. As I said, that will be at the end of the F1 season. So don't hurry off and go into hibernation, remember, your forum awards need you!!! They won't be any good without the support of all you good people. I'm relying on you all to participate, who knows, you might win something and just think of the bragging rights you will have if you do!!
