poonipoonz - July 3, 2010 03:20 AM (GMT)
It didn't happen in 2008.... It sadly fell apart in 2009... But it's finally here! That's right! The 2010 Poonz Tavern Comic Awards officially start today. Some of you still may be asking. Awards? What awards? Well let me just tell you then! The comic awards are like any other contest, take for instance the Grammys, though sadly not as spectacular. There are different categories that have been created to award certain comics that fit that category a prize. Now the award you may ask, "What awards do we get?" Well it's time I explain that too. Below is a sample award that was first introduced for the SSBB tournament on PT. These "signature awards" are similar, but not exactly, the sig awards we will give out to winners. This officially recognizes the winner in each category. As well as that Poonz Tavern will officially promote all winners on this forum and support their comics. As well, PT will personally provide authors with support to better their spriting and drawing abilities.Sample categories include, Best Visual Sprite Comic, Best Action Comic, Best original Comic, etcRules
To submit your comic, please click here to go to the official entry topic. As stated above this is a fun contest that is a first for this forum. The judges for this contest will be showcased very soon with a short profile.The Contest Submissions begin today and will officially come to a close on July 26. A short list of entries that have made the cut for a category will be posted on July 28. At this point the community will be able to vote for two comics in each category. Between July 30-31 the final results will be posted and the awards presented in a unique fashion. So let as many people as you know that are in the spriting and webcomic world to take part in this contest! We thank you for taking part in this momentous event by not just submitting a comic, but also by supporting the spriting and webcomic community on Poonz Tavern. Thanks!

Hey, I'd suggest if you have a comic, feel free to submit it. We'd love to see it, and you never know, you may win a prize! Don't think about if it's good or not, let the public and the judges decide. :D The Official Submission topic is right here!

I have no doubt this will increase activity, however I'm concerned it will only be while this event is going on. But eh, who cares. Let me know if I can do anything to help with this "project" or whatever it should be called.
poonipoonz - July 12, 2010 04:26 AM (GMT)
Thanks Mana! Even if it increases a little bit more activity in the long run, it'll be worth it.
KazMazter - July 19, 2010 03:54 AM (GMT)
If only that annoying side-quest called 'Life' hadn't got in the way of me making Pokemon Dominance of Earth, it could've been a good candidate for this. D;
Ah well, always next year. Good luck to those who enter~
Zman - July 25, 2010 04:48 PM (GMT)
I'll throw Dark Age and A Different Perspective in. I could've sworn the rules said 10 posts when I last checked. Oh well, I hope I can get in, and I promise I'll get five more posts in before judging is over.http://www.smackjeeves.com/comicprofile.php?id=34187http://www.smackjeeves.com/comicprofile.php?id=66942

I'll copypaste my post in the other thread for good measure.

Thank you to everyone that has taken part in this event. We have now stopped taking entries. And we hope to release the short list very soon. :)
poonipoonz - August 6, 2010 02:24 AM (GMT)
I'm sorry it is taking so long to give out the awards for the event, but please bear with me as I am trying to present them in a "unique" fashion. Thanks! :)
poonipoonz - August 10, 2010 01:17 AM (GMT)
And the results are up!
Thank you to everyone who took part in the event. I know that the results are a tad late, mainly my fault as I wanted to present it a certain way and things in life just interfered. Anyways, I'd like to thank our Judges as well, Jaffar, Lord Zenith, Spitfire, and nighthawk_99, who took some time out of their lives to help get this first ever event running on our forum! Many had entered, but sadly only a few could win.
The Awards have been presented in a short video over at our new YouTube Channel.
Please click here
for the results.
All the winners will receive an ward in a pm on this forum, and another special surprise. :)
Jaffar - August 10, 2010 01:26 AM (GMT)

Thats all I had to look forward to!

Coming soon in a different video! ;D
Nick - August 10, 2010 02:12 AM (GMT)
I love how half the people who won don't even come to the forum. Anyways may I offer a suggestion next time don't announce the results in a youtube video took forever for it to load.
Geoff - August 10, 2010 02:29 AM (GMT)
Cool. This greatly improves my confidence in Simple Pixel :D.
I'm not sure if I should have beaten Pokemon Granite though. I've been reading that for so long, it was one of the three inspirations I had for SP... XD
Vegito - August 10, 2010 02:35 AM (GMT)
Great work on the video Poonz, can't wait to see the member awards.

Maybe the active members should try making comics that are enjoyable.
The only comics I actually liked were Panda TV and A Different Perspective. There were a few comics that were tolerable, but those two were my favorites by far.
LoneAlchemist - August 10, 2010 03:14 AM (GMT)
Man, I didn't even get mentioned...
Omegasonic0 - August 10, 2010 05:23 AM (GMT)
My only complaint is that you guys made an entire category for just Pokemon comics. Were there seriously that many, or did you just need another category that badly? :/
Jaffar - August 10, 2010 05:30 AM (GMT)
Literally half were Pokemon comics.
Omegasonic0 - August 10, 2010 05:33 AM (GMT)
Ah... Well, that stifles my complaint. Anyway, for anyone of the judges, may I have a list of complaints about my comic? I'd like to know what I should improve on.
Lord Zenith - August 10, 2010 05:44 AM (GMT)
I literally nominated comics based on the first five pages, the most recent ten, and a few ones in the middle chosen entirely at random. I did not take any notes, nor did I keep track of my complaints, I just glanced at the comic and decided if it was any good or not.
However, most of the comics I nominated I actually went through later.
iirc I didn't choose your comic because I don't like Sonic OC comics but I have no idea at this point.
Petah-Petah - August 10, 2010 08:47 AM (GMT)
Shit Fuck Ass Fuck got the 1-up award for best sprite comic?
I'm okay with this! =D
(And two runner-ups are really cool too.)
