Hello,

Thank you for visiting KarateForums.com.

After more than a month of nominations and votes, the 21st 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 18,542 registered members in the history of this community, only 168 have ever been nominated for an award.

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. If you are reading this now and realizing that you accidentally voted for yourself: Don't worry, those votes were deleted.

Without further ado, here are our winners:

1. Member of the Year: (tie) aurik and Zaine (for the 2nd consecutive year!)

2. New Member of the Year: DarthPenguin

3. Community Spirit Award: bushido_man96 (for the 7th time!)

4. Staff Member of the Year: bushido_man96 (for the 6th time and 3rd consecutive year!)

5. Funniest Member of the Year: ashworth

6. Karate Contributor of the Year: aurik

7. Health and Fitness Contributor of the Year: bushido_man96 (for the 5th time!)

8. Instructors and School Owners Contributor of the Year: Wastelander (for the 2nd consecutive year!)

Congratulations to bushido_man96 (3 wins!), aurik (2 wins!), Zaine, DarthPenguin, ashworth, and Wastelander! We had 3 first time winners this year, including aurik, DarthPenguin, and ashworth!

In addition, bushido_man96 had reached an incredible milestone of 20 KarateForums.com Awards wins, now at 21, which puts him 2nd all-time. Another fun detail, which gives perspective to how long-running these awards are, is that bushido_man96 won the Community Spirit Award for the 7th time, but it was his first time winning that category in a decade, as sensei8 has won it for the 9 consecutive years prior. Amazing marks for both.

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
