Welcome to the Official site for the Annual Amber Awards.
Patterned (!) loosely on the movie industry's "Oscars", this
awards "contest" is run annually at Ambercon
NW by House Lightfoot
(Chris, Leslie & Nick Lightfoot).
Our mission is to recognize and
possibly ridicule excellence in role-playing at Ambercon NW.
Nominations are made from Amber games
actually played during one of the Slots during the relevant year
of ACNW. (Golf games, drinking games, head games etc. are not
eligible.) Each Ambercon Northwest member may submit as many
nominations per category as they wish. Please do not submit the
same nominee more than once in a single category. You may,
however, submit the same nominee in a different category.
Nomination forms, ballot boxes and
rules are available at registration and in the Winery Wing near the
Presentation and Awards:
The Awards Ceremony is held during the
post-convention party on Sunday. Winners are presented with a
Trump bearing the image of Oberon as the Black Rabbit - an
"Obie." Winners are also posted on the ACNW web site.
This "contest" (meant to be a
helpful descriptor, not a legal definition) is open to all ACNW members
regardless of age, rank or Shadow of origin. House Lightfoot and the
"Obies" competition are not affiliated with Ambercon Northwest. ACNW
organizers, volunteers, and staff of the McMenamins Edgefield are in no
way responsible for its content or competence.
Nominations, like courtesans, are judged by frequency and quality of
their submission. All entries become lost property and are
tabulated non-scientifically by the Amber Northwest Academy of Skills
& Silliness (A.N. A.S.S.) Decisions of A.N. A.S.S. are arbitrary
and may not be appealed to any higher authority including the Unicorn,
the Serpent or the Simone. All awards have no cash value and may
be declared to be non-existent.
Special thanks to - Cort Oderkirk and
Chris Lightfoot for Obie Art, Simone Cooper for hosting ACNW, and the
staff of the McMenamins Edgefield.
