It's time once again for the annual KnifeDogs Members Choice Awards.
This is our third contest and we expect it to be the best yet.
We are going with the same categories as last year with the following exceptions.
A. Bowies and Fighters over 11" will be combined into Non Tactical Fixed blades.
B. Bushcraft and Neo Tribal will have it's own category due to it's explosion in popularity.

So this years categories will be as follows:

Non-Tactical Fixed Blade
Tactical Fixed Blade
Non-Tactical Folder
Tactical-Folder
Best New Builder
Tomahawks, Axes and Swords
Leatherworks
Neo-Tribal / Bushcraft
Best Forum educator
Top Dog

I'll start and stick a thread for each category and we will except nominations through Friday January 18th. They will then close at midnight and the final voting will begin and will end at midnight the Jan 31st.

The rules are simple:
The entries must have been posted with a picture on KnifeDogs during the year 2012.
You can nominate yourself or any other member.
Please post a good picture, because that's all we have to go by.
If a nominee thinks he's in the wrong category, just let me know.

What you can win:
International prestige and acclaim :)
A free one year personal forum on KnifeDogs (or renewal of your current forum)
A nice engraved plaque. (Handled again this year by Beth in Customer service).

So check out the nomination threads and let's get the ball rolling,
Thanks,
Steve

The nominations end at Midnite.
Please check the posts to see if you're happy with where your piece is. If you request to move it, let me know.
You can only have one piece per category and a maker is only eligible in 3 categories.

Myself and a Mod (I Appoint Brad Lilly, lol) will make any final decisions before the final vote begins.

Good luck to all and thanks for participating.

One more week to vote!!!
Come on guys, every vote counts, if you take the time to look at the thread why not just vote? I see one thread with over 1500 views and only 35 votes. These nominees worked their butts off so lets give 'em their due respect.

Thanks to all.

Wow, now thats a good line up of winners!

It was great to watch the progression of their skills on the way to the top over the last couple years, with the exception of Kevin anyway, He was always at the top.

Thanks for the Thanks, Calvin.
I gotta thank all who helped, and the winners should expect a PM from Customer Service Beth regarding their forums and plaques.

Oh, and while we're at it, we may as well start thanking Brad Lilly for all his help next year.
Somehow, I see him volunteering to be the Awards Boss. He just doesn't know that he's volunteered yet!!
