The AR Award competition is a unique visitors' choice award honoring excellence in message forum administration. The AR Award seeks to recognize and promote message board communities that provide a platform for the discussion of alternative reality fiction in any and all of its forms. By hosting this award, ARWZ Magazine hopes to give greater exposure to well-run alternative reality communities, as well as to provide a means for users to show their gratitude to the hard-working administrators who keep these communities engaging and active.
We accept nominations for the AR Award year round. Anyone is welcome to nominate a message board community that he/she feels is deserving of this award. First and foremost, nominated communities must provide a platform for the discussion of alternative reality fiction, in some form. Eligible forum communities must be dedicated to the discussion of literature, films, television, art and/or games in the genres of science fiction, fantasy, horror or historical. Communities with more general themes are eligible as long as they have at least one active forum dedicated to the discussion of one or more alternative reality genres. ARWZ Editors will evaluate all nominated pages prior to inclusion in the final vote, and we reserve the right to disclude any nominated page at our discretion, including pages with offensive material or that do not exemplify the qualities of forum administration that we seek to recognize.
At the end of voting, the first, second and third place winners will be showcased on the magazine in a display on our AR Award Winners page. The display will include an award plaque image and a permanent link to the winning sites. Additionally, winners will be eligible to receive free advertising on ARWZ.com for one month. Winners will get a choice of one (1) advertising package of their choice. For details on each, please review all our available advertising packages.
