This was suggested on the Radio 2 award thread so here goes.
The Mudcat Awards you can nominate in the following sections.

Rules (there has always got to be some)
Nominate who you want from the Folk Music genre
Nominates closes on 7 Dec 2012
The 4 most popular nominations will move on to the voting list
I will then produce a voting thread

For better or worse my decision for 2012 is final!!!!!!

I don't think you'll get any response in this here Café. Most folks just don't like "awards". Now, if there were other categories, in the BS section, of course, like say, "Most Reactionary Mudcatter" likely to go apeshit when someone messes with him or his firends and go after yer ass or similar, ya might have something. I have a nominee in mind for that one. >;-)

I think he's talking about us not nominating other Mudcat Members, but Folk and Traditional performers in general.

But only, apparently, "recording artists".

LEJ... I still don't think that matters. Most Mudcatters that I know just don't like "awards" stuff. It's nice to be recognized, of course, but... well, that discussion could go on - yet again - forever.

Sorry. I shouldn't have posted at all. My bad. Have fun.

How about just going for one thing at a time
eg
Most welcoming pub

I would nominate The Good Intent in Rochester this year. It gives itself to the folk group most Tuesdays, and some weekends and the Rochester sweeps. It puts up a marque for the sweeps where even more music goes on, and there is usually some food supplied to performers and audience on the folk nights.

There was on the BBC radio 2 awards, discussion over who had not been awarded, I used the format of the BBC to see who we would nominate etc. Hindsight being a wonderful thing quite clearly a bad idea.Therefore I consider this thread closed

I don't think labelling anyone as 'award-winning' is helpful.
I've often had to advise non-folkies that the 'Radio 2 Folk Awards' are exactly that (what you might expect from an Easy Listening radio station) and are not 'THE Folk Awards'.
There are of course competitive festivals where you can win an award for your performance.

Mudcat awards have been well received in previous years.
If you don't like the game then don't play.
I suggest you keep going with this, Selby.

Splott... I filtered "Mudcat Awards" and got nothing. Kinda odd since this thread exists???

Anyway, I'd love to see an example. Maybe I was hasty in my assumptions. Yeah, yeah... I know. >;-)

They may have been called Alternative Folk Awards or something similar.
