Fourth annual Silmaril Awards are coming!
They’re back (almost)! The internet’s most wonderful fantasy character awards are coming to website near you!
If you’ve been sleeping in a cave for four years, or if you’re new to this site, the Silmaril Awards is an online awards ceremony not for books or authors, but for the characters themselves.
Nominations open on September 2nd. You can nominate or second any fantasy character in the comments section of the post for that award on the site of the host for that award.
Nominations last a week and this is followed by one week of voting.
Finally come the awards—two weeks of fantasy mayhem in which each award is presented by a different character from the works of J.R.R. Tolkien on the site of the host for that award.
This year’s award categories are:
- Most Epic Heroine
- Least Competent Henchman
- Most Magnificent Dragon
- Silver Tongue
- Most Faithful Friend
- Most Nefarious Villain
- Strangest Character
- Most Epic Hero
- Most Mischievous Imp
- Wisest Counsellor
I’ll be hosting the nomination and presentation for the MOST EPIC HERO! I can’t wait! I’ve wanted to host this one for a long time.
So be sure to pop by on Monday for the awards kickoff!
See you there!
