Silmaril Awards 2018 - Most Faithful Friend Nominations


September 3, 2018


Time to herald in a post with trumpets and fanfare - THE SILMARIL AWARDS ARE HERE!

It's the third annual Silmaril Awards! 


   If you were around for the last two years of the Silmaril Awards (previously known as the Silmarillion Awards), you're probably already escaping down to the comments to start nominating left and right. But for those of you who are new to the Silmaril Awards (hello and hello!) here's how this shindig works:

   The Silmaril Awards are an event put on by Jenelle Schmidt and DJ Edwardson to celebrate our favorite fantasy characters by having all of you guys nominate (and second, third, fourth, etc.) the best fantasy characters in literature to win one of ten Silmaril Awards. And, seeing as this is an event for fantasy characters, the characters presenting the awards at the end will be the some of the best characters of all time - characters from the Hobbit and Lord Of The Rings. So I'm while afraid no Tolkien characters can be nominated (and authors can't nominate their own characters), everyone else (so long as they're a fantasy characters) is fair game! And be sure to include the title of the book the character you nominate is from, so that everyone knows.

   Y'all have a few days (the exact schedule for the Silmaril Awards is at the bottom of this post) to nominate (and second, third, fourth, fifth, etc. - there's no limit to how many times a character can be seconded, and you can second as many as you'd like!) the best fantasy characters, and then the five that got seconded the most will move on to the voting round. And make sure to check out the grand-new Silmaril Awards website!


OKAY, with all that out of the way ...

This year I'm hosting the Most Faithful Friend award! Inigo and Reepicheep are the previous winners of this award, and I'm incredibly curious to see who y'all choose as this year's winner. So go thee forth to the comments section and nominate away!
