How voting will work:
This thread will be set to contest mode. This means that all comments will be sorted randomly and no scores will be displayed. All other top level comments will be removed.
Please reply to the top level comment under the category with appropriate links for your nomination. Please only nominate a submission once per category. If you see the one you wanted to add please upvote it (this is how you vote on each category). At the end we will check all the vote numbers to determine the winner in each category.
You may only nominate submissions made in 2017.
You can nominate anyone if you feel they deserve it.
You cannot nominate yourself.
Submissions nominated will not count if they broke any rules.
To nominate, your account must be over 6 weeks old and active (no alts please)
You can only nominate once per category.
The person you nominated must have an active account (post anywhere on reddit in the last 2 months, to ensure winners make use of the prize)
Voting will last until 5th January 2018, whenever our hangovers wear off.
Any and all discussion can be directed to this post:
We qualify for 20 creddits from reddit. 1 creddit = 1 month of reddit gold.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!
No memes. This includes references in titles of your post (e.g. "banana for scale," "potato quality").
Related posts must be in the comments of the original. Posts that acknowledge, "one-up," or relate specifically to another post are not allowed (e.g. "I see your X and raise you Y")
Do not post something that has been submitted to reddit before, even if you were the one who posted it.
a. All submissions must be original and non-animated photographs.
b. All submissions must be original content. If you didn't take the picture, don't post it.
c. Software glitches/errors, overlaid text, arrows, scribbles, and other substantive edits are not allowed, although you may censor personal information per Reddit-wide rules.
d. Side by side images are okay if they adhere to the rest of the rules.
No screenshots. We define a screenshot as a screen grab. This means no images of screens, pictures of screens taken with a different device, images that have been partially or fully generated by a computer, or pictures of printed out screenshots. Try /r/screenshots!.
a. Titles must not contain jokes, backstory, or other fluff. That information belongs in a follow-up comment.
b. Titles must exactly describe the content. It should act as a "spoiler" for the image. If your title leaves people surprised at the content within, it breaks the rule!
c. Titles must not contain emoticons, emojis, or special characters unless they are absolutely necessary in describing the image.
