2012 "Personality Plus" awards

As part of our annual celebration of glider research, rescue and education this year,
the SUGAR Group is hosting a contest open to ALL glider owners. We are seeking the biggest and cutest personalities for recognition this year.

This contest will feature 12 categories. The community will vote for one winner in each category.
Winners of each category will receive a calendar in which their story/photo will be featured one month.

Rules:

*You are welcome to submit ONE nomination in each category. You may only submit ONE nomination per category. Anyone who makes more than one submission in any one category will have all of their submissions in
that category deleted.

* A special forum will be opened on The Sweet Spot for the submission of nominations. Nominations may be
submitted today through Feb. 11, 2012.


* ALL Sugar glider owners are allowed to make submissions (including SUGAR group staff). You do
not have to plan to attend the RRRoundup to make a nomination or to win a category.

* Within 3 days of the submission deadline, a committee of 2-3 people who do not own sugar gliders (identities to be
revealed at the RRRoundup) will review each category and narrow the nominations down to the top 4 submissions in each category.

* Once the top 4 in each category are chosen, then voting will begin on the SUGAR Group's website. Voting will occur on this website to keep the voting secret until the Friday night dinner at the RRRoundup.

* In order to ensure that votes are counted accurately, the votes will be tallied by three individuals at the RRRoundu. The three individuals will include at least one SUGAR Group staff member and at least one person who is not on staff with the SUGAR Group. Votes will be tallied on Thursday, March 15, 2012.

* Winners of the categories will be announced at dinner on Friday night, March 16, 2012. All paid registrants for the RRRoundup (including those who are participating online) will have access to view the dinner and
winner announcements.

* Winning photos and stories will be posted in our scrolling ads and trivia during breaks and meal time on Saturday.

* All entries are given with permission to the SUGAR Group to utilize the stories and/or photos at the RRRoundup, in the calendar and on our website.

* Last year's winning photos are not eligible for submission.

* Community votes are final. In the event of a tie, we will ask for votes from Debbie Betts, Brandon Trujillo and one hotel
staff member.

** This is meant to be a FUN event and in no way an actual gauge of popularity or personality. Only enter if you do so in a
spirit of fun.


**********************

So get your cameras and story-telling skills ready - we are now on the look out for submissions in the following categories:

1) Cutest Family
2) Cutest Couple
3) Best Holiday photo (any holiday)
4) Most photogenic
5) Best Forager
6) Best Smile
7) Biggest Wheel Hog
8) Most Social
9) Nature Lover (best photo in nature)
10) Most Adorable (must make us go "awwwww")
11) Best Photo of Glider(s) at Play
12) Messiest Eater(s)


In the forum on The Sweet Spot you will find additional details about what we are looking for in each of these categories.

Bring on your nominations! You only have until Feb. 10 to get them to us!!!!

I am having such a hard time deciding on photos to submit. I think I have made up my mind, and then I see someone else's and think "Dang, that one is so good!" so I go think about it some more. LOL.

Can't wait to see all the nominations. Bring on your photos folks!

Don't anyone laugh at my nature photo!
I don't take my gliders outside for photos, so this was the best I could do. LOL.

Hahahah!!!! You both are too silly.

I was worried at my best smile photo, I was the first to post and then after mine everyone posted pictures showing teeth and I was thinking "oh crepe, well I thought she looked like she was smiling" So I have decided to stand my ground, she looks happy...hah

The time to submit photos has come to an end. I have locked all of the threads and will now begin the process of gathering our non-glider owning judges to have them narrow down the nominations to 4 finalists in each category.

In a week or two, finalists will be announced and voting will begin.

Good luck everyone! So many GREAT photos were submitted this year!

Ok, well here is where we are at this time.

Our impartial judges have been having a very hard time narrowing down the finalists in a few of the categories. Specifically in Most Adorable, Cutest Couple, Most Photogenic and Best Smile.

So, over the next week or so, I will put up the finalists from the other categories and I am going to find some other non-glider owning folks to help out in the four categories mentioned above. Once we finally have narrowed ALL categories down to 4 finalists, then I will open voting on the SUGAR Group website.

*sigh* See the trouble we get when we have so many amazing/cute photos entered?

Well, we FINALLY have finalists for ALL of the categories!

Those of you who entered pictures in the "most photogenic" and "best smile" categories REALLY made this a tough race. I had to go to SEVEN different people to get the ties broken in these categories.

Without a doubt, this will be one of our best contests EVER!

I will be putting up the finalists for the remaining categories over the next few days.

Don't forget to join us FRIDAY night of the RRRoundup to find out who won! If you have not registered yet, do so. Whether in person or from home, you don't want to miss finding out which photos won this contest!
