  • Voting for 2019 ENnies Is Live!


    Please vote for your favorite publishers, Judges, and product nominees in the 2019 ENnies Awards! Voting is live and runs until 11 PM EST on July 21st.





    "As a reminder -We follow One Person One Vote! It is very important that the democratic principle of “one person, one vote” be followed. If you have already voted for products and/or judges, then please do not vote for them again. Also, please do not ask people to vote multiple times to pad the votes for a certain product or judge.In addition – Publishers that publicly endorse or campaign for or against a specific prospective judge via website statements, social media, and/or emails during the nomination/voting period are ineligible to have products considered for nomination during that year. This includes but is not limited to official company accounts and company owners.

    Good luck to all the nominees!

    We are excited to announce the publicly chosen winners during Gen Con, August 2nd at Union Station, Indianapolis, Indiana. For those that can’t attend, we will be live streaming the event!"

      I get that the publisher sends products for evaluation, and since they are not attending, they probably didn't submit theirs, but it's kind of silly not seeing a single WotC product here.

      I think publishers have to pay to enter the contest, more than just giving away products. If there's not a lot of visibility, it might not worth it, it's a bit like Pay-2-win. Without WotC or Paizo, it's a bit strange looking contest. At the same time, it's not the same production level of quality. On my side, I know Zweihander because of this contest so I'll follow this year votes as well.

      If you don't enter a popularity contest, you can't lose. And given that WotC is the big fish, do they really need to win? After all, in the popularity contest that counts, paying players and sales, they already are the winners.

      WOTC didn't enter, so they are not on the list. How is that silly?

      I don't see anything about that on their website. Where did you hear that?

      I was going to ask how they got on the list. I was surprised to not see Strongholds and Followers. I could easily see them win a couple categories.

      Nope. But they do have to provide product for evaluation.

      There is no entry fee to submit products to the ENnie Awards apart from actually sending the products one wants to enter to the judges. Neither WotC nor Paizo chose to enter this year.

      Maybe Paizo is planning to hit 2020 big time with Pathfinder 2e to sweep all the big awards, so just sitting out of 2019.

      I don't want to speak for anyone, but maybe creators of popular products that don't really need the "boost" that would come from the Ennies decline to enter to give way to lesser known products that could use it more?

      Wizards and Paizo win an award every three months. It's called a quarterly report.

      One of the companies I've worked younger was trying for awards each year, had to pay a fee for each participation.

      Glad they don't have to here, thanks Morrus for the clarification.
