What As the title says, this year we will be holding our first annual TCZ awards! There will be several different categories that members will be able to nominate and vote on, as well as loads of prizes to be handed out to all of the winners! When The nomination process will start on December 1 and last throughout the entire month of December. At some point after December 31 (I won't try to guarantee that anything gets done on January 1) there will be polls posted for each category. The voting will last 2-4 weeks. The nominee with the most votes wins! Categories Card of The Year - This will be a poll with the top 10 Card of The Month winners. So the only way to win CoTY is to have once before won CoTM. Member of the Year - This can be anyone on the site (not including staff). Trader of the Year - This is not necessarily the member who completes the most trades. This could be any member who is just fun and easy to trade with, regardless of how many total trades they've completed. Rookie of the Year - To be eligible here, the member must have joined the site in the year 2013. Thread of the Year - This will be given to the first post in any thread that has the most likes. Post of the Year - This award will be given to the post that receives the most likes. If it is the first post in a thread, however, it cannot win this award. Those posts will be considered for Thread of the Year. For these next several categories, only cards that were displayed on TCZ at some point during the year are eligible for nomination. I won't provide explanations because they're all mostly self explanatory. Best Autograph Card Best Memorabilia Card Best Insert (Non-Autograph/Mem) Card Best Vintage Card These next categories are self explanatory too. Just like the card categories, to be eligible for nomination on the following categories, these collections must have been shared somewhere on TCZ. Best Team Collection Best Player Collection Best Set Collection Additional Notes Like I said above, everyone who wins any of these categories will win a prize. We're still unsure exactly what those prizes will be but there could be hobby boxes, eBay gift cards, and much more. My advice would be to simply get involved as much as possible in the site to ensure that you have a chance at being nominated for one or all of these categories. Good luck everyone!
