Filmstalker Hotdog Awards categories
We've not tried a awards list here on Filmstalker yet, and with every site doing them and the awards I worked hard on for the last site I was at being unceremoniously dropped, I thought it about time we kicked ours off.
So introducing the Filmstalker Hotdog Awards. Awards that will be solely created and voted by you, the reader and the audience.
I'm going to go with the way I tried this before because it gave some great results, although it was a little confusing to get going.
There will be three rounds of voting. The first round will see readers suggesting and voting on the categories they would like to see. I'll start off with the obvious such as Best Film, Best Actor, etc. and then you can add more and vote on the existing.
Once that round closes I'll gather all the top categories - depending on numbers the lowest voted will be dropped, that probably means any with one vote!
The second round will have you suggesting and voting on the nominees for the category. When that closes the same system will be applied to pick the nominees for each category.
The final round will see you voting on the nominees in each category and picking the actual winners. This round will close with the single most popular voted entry being the winner for each category.
Sound okay? Instructions clear?
To get started head over to Filmstalker Readers and add your category suggestions and/or vote for those already there.
You do have to sign up but this information goes nowhere other than the system used to run it, and it allows you to get involved and post new stories to Filmstalker and the other readers too. For information on how to use it, select the How To option from the menu once you get there.
One point to note is that you can enter a blank link to begin. So head over, sign up, and get going. Any problems drop a comment below. I hope to leave each round open for a few weeks, just to try and get as any votes as possible.
