The Rose and Bay awards have been founded to honor people participating in crowdfunded projects. This year, the categories are to be Fiction, Art, Poetry, Other, and Donor. They are being managed by ysabetwordsmith  and [info]xjenavivex .  (They are each managing categories they didn't participate in in 2009.)

Anyone interested in any crowdfunded projects can nominate up to three projects per category.  That includes donators, artists, authors, and all readers/viewers.  So all of us are eligible to nominate our favorite crowdfunded projects or donors. 

The nominations are to be placed as comments in the appropriate post in the crowdfunding  community; I'm linking to the post for nominating crowdfunded fiction here.  Once there, you can check out the community to find the other posts, and other crowdfunded projects.

I'm really excited about this, and hoping it will lead to more people understanding what crowdfunding is.  I also hope it will help more people find crowdfunded projects that they can enjoy.

I expect the awards will evolve over time--for instance, I wonder if recorded music projects should have their own category.  I hope you will let us know (here, or on one of the posts in crowdfunding discussing the matter) what you as consumers of crowdfunded content would like to see in regards to these awards.

And I hope you'll consider making a few nominations!

Slowly getting around to my friends list while I do some photo backups. I tried the link to the noms but it didn't work for me but I popped into the comm to check it out.

I think it's a good idea. I didn't realise that crowdfunded works are often left out of award categories :(

I've made a post so hopefully other people will know about this award. :)
