The Dark Globe Outstanding Artist Awards – Finalists

Presented by The Dark Globe




Well, it wasn’t easy, but in the end the systems I put in place to determine our Finalists worked pretty good.

I was basically only left with one spot that I actually had to determine myself… Which was a 6 way tie for the 5th Spot of the Photographer of the Year.

Which, by the way, was the most difficult to determine, as there were 15 Nominees…

But by God We Did it!! lol

Before I get to the Nominees, I want to take a moment to Issue Forth a couple of what I’m calling Artist Diversity Awards to two of the Nominee’sThe First goes to Mike10613, for being Nominated for Both Photographer of the Year, and Writer of the Year… He didn’t end up warranting either of the Individual Awards per the System I utilized to determine the Final Nominees, but I feel that he Definitely deserves some recognition for being Nominated for Two Different Categories… So Gratz to you Mike… The Second Artist Diversity Award is being issued to Nuvofelt for being Nominated not only for two Categories, but for two completely different Blogs… Chittle Chattle for Blogger of the Year, and Just Snaps for Photographer of the Year… So Gratz to you as well Nuvofelt…

Here is your Award, which the two of you can each Post on your Sites… Congratulations…

The Dark Globe Artist Diversity Award awarded to;

Congratz to all… As I said before, this was a very, very, very difficult Category to determine… I will also be Posting an Honorable Mention Post for the Nominees that didn’t make the Final Cuts in the Three Categories.

Writer of the Year Final Nominees;

3) This Time – This Space

5) Love is the Answer

Congratz to all… Once again, a very, very difficult Category, as there were 14 Nominees.

The Way the Voting will work is, Each Blogger may Vote for One Nominee from each Category… And that’s it… No Multiple Voting from anyone, for any specific Nominee. One Vote Per Category is all you get. Nominees May Vote for the Other Two Categories that they’re not in… All Votes Need to be Posted on This Page, or in the New Voting Thread that I will Post in the Forums on December 21st…


Nominees are allowed to Advertise on their Own Blogs for People to Vote for them… Not on other Peoples Blogs.*

*This Rule has been Amended as Noted here There can Be Only One

And not in the Forums. I will be letting the Forums Know about Voting for the Nominees… Other people are allowed to Promote People they’d like to Win Within Their Own Blogs, but not in the Forums. But Nominees need to stick to Promoting within their own Blogs… Have some Self Respect, for gods sake, lol

Congratz to all of the Finalists, and the Games Begin in 24 Hours.

Good Luck!


*Special Thanks to Pete, Pdk and Quill, 3 of my/our Senior Dark Globe Writers,  for getting me their Lists which helped me to determine the Final 5 Finalists Per Category
