Hello, Hypnos! I know I know I know - I've been absent a while. I will make every effort to stop back in and post a bit more. The community over at Relaxed Machinery has decided to do an awards thing - celebrating music, photography, poetry, podcasts, reviewers, etc... YOU are welcome to participate whether a member at rM or not - I'd love to see us get a wide range of people from all over the ambient landscape and not just rM. I will be highlighting that I asked for input from Hypnos, Ambient Online, Electro-Music and other communities to try and get as wide of participation as possible.
What I posted at rM is below. Thank you very much!
The awards are now open for nominations through the end of this year. You can nominate as many artists, albums, photos, poems, etc... as you want... but please only nominate the same artist for the same thing once.
This is fully inclusive to everyone in the world. If you love an artist who doesn't post here - nominate them! If you have a favorite photographer who doesn't post here - nominate them! Maybe, just maybe, we'll encourage some new people to join in our wonderful creative community! And, of course, if your favorites are "pro" or "amateur", "commercial" or "creative commons" or "free" - it doesn't matter.
What matters is who YOU think deserves to win.
The form is here:https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1DYvnBZVKLKpcryXIO1gFbYkcw3LHZSzMsiT5vieZEU8/viewform
You do not have to fill in every field. And once you "submit" the form at the bottom - there's a link to start it over again to nominate another person, album, etc...
Once the nominations are closed - I'll compile a short list from each category and everyone will vote in January for the winners!
The January voting will also include some open ended questions for you to share what moved you in 2013... whether an artist or an event or whatever.
