there goes my quadruple
In all seriousness though I do believe it should remain as three separate categories - avatar, poster and designer. The thinking behind this is that there is ridiculous competition in the avatar market this year with hundreds of top quality pieces coming through and they deserve to fight for a unique reward. Posters are in a similar boat and although the market isn't as deep, there has still been some great creations from a handful of skilled designers. Finally, the Designer OTY award is about the person and what they have done and can be to do with consistency, quality, activity or anything - not necessarily about a single piece of standout work which is what the other awards are for.
Should we meet halfway? Avatar and Poster I totally understand but the rest are a bit repetitive and well after all we are trying hard to shorten the list no?
I`d be good with keeping New and Breakthrough Manager of the year considering I am running the events this year and won`t mess it up like Jungle did and accepting a very tenured manager (very deserving just should not have qualified) as Breakthrough candidate.
What do you guys think?
