GMT Awards

The second season of GMT has come to an end. Itís been an eventful one to say the least; there have been bitch fights and beautiful graphics, as well as the occasional Board Election thrown in. But now itís time for our annual GMT Awards.

Once again the Board has trawled the yearís tournament threads to refresh our memory and rediscover forgotten masterpieces in order to compile a shortlist for our awards. If you have not been nominated don't take it personally, narrowing down each shortlist to the final contenders is no easy task.

Those who have been nominated for the Beth Mattek, Marion Bartoli & Laura Robson Awards now have 24 hours to submit a graphic they have used in GMT this year to convince voters that they deserve the award. After this voting will open. If you are eligible to vote you will be sent a PM. Please vote for who you think most deserves the award rather than your best friend. And, once again, we ask you to please keep your vote secret.

In addition to the awards below, this year the Board has decided to introduce a special GMT Honorary Award, presented to a person we feel has been devoted to the game, made a difference and is a general asset to the game. This winner of the 1st Honorary Award will be announced after the other awards have been awarded.

And so, without further ado, we present you with the GMT Awards 2009 Shortlists:

Are we allowed to submit a graphic we have used in an Exhibition or just proper tournaments?

Exhibitions count, but not duels. :)

I think the idea was that everyone can maintain their own profile page. I can make the template again when I find some time if people want.

oh ur talking bout profiles:p
i was thinking of compiling all avies, banners, frees so it would be easier for us to choose for the best avy award etc.
or maybe ur picturing it differently:p
i was thinking maybe the profiles would be separate from our works or maybe just with some of our best works:p

I just looked at the graphics of the round this year, saved a lot of time as they're all on the 1st page. ;)

My exho wasn't nominated :awww: :ras:

:scratch: It should have been, we thought we'd included all the exos. Which one was this?

I also checked the GOTR on the first page, but I like the idea others suggested because the GOTR show only managers' choice which may be completely different from ours...

I think his exo was the GMT Factor Exo ;)

Answering your (bad) rep. I did my best lately to be very nice to everybody. I had some attitude problems toward posters and I'm real sorry about that. But there's nothing more I can do. If people decide not to forgive me...well that's their choice. But why would Acinobalj get Newcomer and me and Micheal...don't get it...thats kind of weird no...? Whatever. I wish the very best luck to all of you guys nominated. :angel:

it says best newcomer..the board probably picked 3 they found to be the best makers among newcomers :rolleyes: And your posts in this thread don't really show that you improved your attitude...

I would rather have had my Wozniacki's road to final or Serena's road to final banner compete as compared to the roger one.
