This thread is the place to make nominations throughout the year for the 2012 Posty Awards. I will start to organize them when December rolls around. The categories are:

Poster of the Year (2011 winner: JLOGIC)
Newcomer of the Year (2011 winner: Antrax)
Thread of the Year (2011 winner: Inquiry for "B/I Defensive Play" series)
Individual Post of the Year (no 2011 winner)
"Bridge in the Real World" Award (2011 winner: JLOGIC)
Most Helpful B/I Poster (2011 winner: FrancesHinden)

Also, if you want to make nominations for other, "humorous" categories, like "Best Signature", feel free to do so. If you think more awards should be added, or subtracted, feel free to voice that as well.

EDIT: Due to changes in the Forum structure, the "Most Helpful B/I Poster" category is no more. Starting in 2012, the award will be "Most Helpful N/B Poster".
