Hello,

Thank you for visiting KarateForums.com.

After more than a month of nominations and votes, the 2019 edition of the KarateForums.com Awards have come to an end. It is now time for us to announce the winners!

Before I do so, I wanted to once again congratulate everyone who was nominated. Regardless of whether or not you won the award, the fact that you were nominated means that, when asked to identify a member who really stood out in the past year, your fellow community members thought of you. Out of the 18,292 registered members in the history of this community, only 156 have ever been nominated for an award.

So to be nominated is pretty cool, and you should be proud. If you did not win or were not nominated, please don't take it badly. These awards do have meaning, but they are also for fun and not everyone can win or be nominated. Please join me in congratulating our winners.

I would like to specifically thank everyone who participated in the process by nominating and voting. It is the community that selected the nominees and decided the winners. There are no KarateForums.com Awards without you.

Several nominees took the time to vote in categories where they were nominated. Since you can't vote for yourself, your choice is to vote for someone else or not vote at all. Though I can't reveal who voted for whom, please know that I appreciate everyone who thoughtfully voted in the categories where they were nominated. It says a lot about you, and I love to see it.

Without further ado, here are our winners:

1. Member of the Year: Spartacus Maximus (for the 3rd time!)

2. Community Spirit Award: sensei8 (for the 7th consecutive year!)

3. Staff Member of the Year: sensei8 (for the 3rd time!)

4. Funniest Member of the Year: tallgeese
Note: This award came by unanimous nomination, which is why there was no voting ballot.

5. Karate Contributor of the Year: (tie) Wayofaswede and Wastelander (for the 2nd time!)

6. Health, Training and Fitness Contributor of the Year: bushido_man96 (for the 3rd time!)

7. Instructor Central Contributor of the Year: DWx

Congratulations to sensei8 (2 wins!), Spartacus Maximus, tallgeese, Wayofaswede, Wastelander, bushido_man96, and DWX! Wayofaswede is a first time honoree. Congratulations as well to sensei8 on reaching 25 wins, the most all-time, and to bushido_man96 and tallgeese for picking up their 15th wins, tying for the second most ever.

For past winners and all of the awards historical data, please check out: http://www.karateforums.com/awards.php

Thank you for reading and for supporting the KarateForums.com Awards.

Sincerely,

Patrick
