The 4th Annual Defender Awards are due to start on January 9th this year. All are welcome to participate in the nominations, voting, and general discussion which arises from the awards.
The Defender Awards will be lasting for a month - with 2 weeks of nominations, starting on the 9th, followed by 2 weeks of voting. 3 days after the voting is complete, the results will be announced.
The Awards are hosted by the FRA, and can be found http://s7.zetaboards.com/FRA/forum/3002064.
This year, as an addition, we are going to be having several interviews with past winners of awards, as well as (hopefully) some of those whom the awards are named after.
The awards are as follows:
The EuroSoviets Award
The EuroSoviets award is given to the nation who is viewed by the NS community as the one nation who has helped the defender cause the most in the last year.
The Ananke Award
The Ananke Award is giving to those nations who spend their own time looking out for any invasions that are taking place. This normally means staying up till very late and sacrificing their sleep for the greater good.
The Anarchotopia Award
This award is given to the organisation which has proved the most successful in preventing invasions.
The Eagles Disobey Award
This award is given to a particular region which has done its utmost to keep free regions free.
The Blackbird Award
A special award that is given to the invader group which the NS community considers the best out there due to whatever reason.
The Sir Lans Award
Newly re-named, the old ‘Updater of the Year Award’ is for the person who has been involved in more update missions than any other, and has shown dedication to be there if they are needed.
The Operation of the year
The mission which stands out from all others from the last year due to the success, the numbers involved or any other reason.
The Best newcomer Award (for region, nation, organisation)
Given to the region, nation or organisation which has appeared within the last year, and impressed the defender community the most.
The Dipes Award
Given to the nation whom has best served the Intelligence cause.
The Worst Invasion Award
The award given to the operation which was classed as the worst invasion due to defender mistakes, invader cunning or any other reason.
The Best Defender Quote
A light hearted award, given to the nation whose quote or motto has been considered strange, funny or different.
The Meltdown of the Year Award
Given to a nation, region or organisation which has self imploded in spectacular (and often hilarious) style.
The Lifetime Achievement Award for Dedication to Defending
The award given to the nation who has been a dedicated servant to the defender cause for many years, often sacrificing different luxuries in order to help as much as they can.
