2012 Rose & Bay Voting: Other Project Category

Review the nominating post here.

Voting is now open for the Patron category of the Rose and Bay Award. This award honors excellence in creative crowdfunding, and this category recognizes those people who have supported crowdfunded projects both financially and personally (e.g. feedback, promotions, taste, etc). Everyone is encouraged to vote. Please read the complete details below, and then make your vote in the following poll. For more information about this award, visit the 2012 landing page.

What Is the Rose and Bay Award?

The Rose and Bay Award was launched by [info]ysabetwordsmith (Elizabeth Barrette) in January 2009, and quickly gained additional volunteers.  This award focuses on a growing business model known as "crowdfunding" or "cyberfunded creativity," which directly connects creative people and patrons of the arts online.  This award recognizes exemplary projects and enthusiastic patrons.  It currently features six categories: Art, Fiction, Poetry, Webcomic, Other Project, and Patron.

The award period for eligible activities spans January 1-December 31, 2011.
The nomination period spans January 1-January 31, 2012.
The voting period spans February 1-February 29, 2012.  (Leap Day provides an extra day this year.)

These are the handlers for the 2012 award season:

Voting Rules
1) Voters are encouraged (but not required) to browse the nominees before making a final decision; that's what the links are for, and the purpose of this award is to promote the splendor of crowdfunded projects. If you have not already explored the nominees, please refer back to the Fiction nomination post.
2) Voting will take place via LiveJournal non-transparent polling in this community, open to all. Everyone is eligible to vote; if you do not have a LiveJournal account, you may leave a comment below with your full name and your vote. In each category, you may vote for as many entries as you consider worthy of the award. (There may need to be more than one poll question per category, and runoffs, in categories with a high number of nominees.) You may not vote for your own project, nor yourself as a patron.
3) Winners will be announced after the polling is completed.

How You Can Help

As a relatively new award, Rose and Bay depends on everyone's participation and enthusiasm to make it a success.  Here are some ways you can help that happen:

a) Vote. Voting is open all of February. Don't forget to check out the polls for all six categories.

b) Promote. Blog, email friends, tweet, post to Facebook, GooglePlus, Tumblr, or other social websites. Use the banners and icons. Hire a skywriter. Organize a flash mob. Just spread the word.

c) Share. If you're a patron or audience member, highlight your favorite nominated projects and patrons from 2011 and direct people back to the award and relevant voting post. 

d) Speak up. Don't be shy. If you've been nominated for Rose & Bay, let your audience and patrons know and link them to the relevant voting post(s). Let your fans know there is a way for them to honor your project and the patrons who make it possible.
