Nominations are officially open!
The awards will be a little bit different this year. Nominations will run from today until Thursday, April 30th, at 11:59 PM EST. There are 35 categories you can vote in. The 36th category is for the Lifetime Achievement Award, which will be a write-in category during the final round of voting.
These awards are based only on 2008 wizard rock happenings, except for the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Here’s how it works:
You will need a valid email address to be able to vote. After you submit your votes, you will receive an email at the address you provided. You MUST click on the link in this email in order for your vote to be counted.
For each category, you can make two nominations. You don’t have to fill both out if you don’t want to. Please try your best to spell things correctly (it makes our lives so much easier!).
The final voting will begin on Monday, May 4th, barring any unexpected complications. Voting will close on Friday, May 15th, and we will announce the winners on Thursday, May 20th, probably right around midnight EST.
If you have any questions regarding what came out in 2008, I’d recommend checking bands’ MySpaces or iTunes for more information. Feel free to post comments here, and we can try to answer your questions, too.
This post will stay at the top of the page during the nomination period, so don’t forget to scroll down for all the new ‘pedia content. The nominations are running for 12 days, so feel free to take your time! I’ve been testing the nomination sheet for the past few days, and I am still unable to decide on at least half the categories. Take the chance to rediscover music.
One last thing – there is no way that we would have been able to do this without the help of Art. After emailing us to ask if we were hosting the WRPCAs this year, Dinah and I recruited (coerced) him to create the form used for the nominations, the counting process, and the verification process. He deserves mucho thanks for all his help throughout the past few months.

Update: People have been asking if Dinah and I are going to know who you voted for. The answer is no. It would take time and effort for us to find that out, and while it is interesting to see the votes in general, seeing who individuals voted for is not high on our priority list. (I might peek at Dinah’s, though!)
