Community and Game Awards 2012 - FAQ's


Hello Community!


These FAQ's have been prepared to help you out with any questions you might have about the Community and Game Awards 2012. If, after reading this post, you still have questions then post them in this thread and we'll answer you as soon as we can.


To read the answers, just click on the relevant spoiler tag.




Q: What are the Community and Game Awards?


The Community and Game Awards are your chance to highlight the best games, services, content and community activity of the year. More or less, these are the Oscars of PlayStation without the red carpet, but with more style.

Q: How do the awards work?


There are two stages to both, the Community and Game Awards.

- In the first stage, anyone with a PSN account can make a nomination for an award. There are no restrictions here and you can nominate anything you like as long as it is relevant to the award you are making the nomination for.

- In the second stage, the Community and Game Awards work a little differently. For the Community Awards, the nominations made for each award are counted and the top ten nominations go through to the voting stage as finalists.

For the second stage of the Game Awards, the nominations for each award are counted up from all the language groups in the Official PlayStation Community and the top ten nominees for each award go through to the final voting stage.

Finally, community members vote with Kudos for their favourite finalist under each award and once voting is complete we´ll count all the language groups kudos in order to announce the winners.

For the best thread of the Year, the winning thread will be floated. For the Best Clan and Best Community Event awards, the relevant threads will be stickied.


 Q: What happens if there is a tie-break for any award?




Regardless of whether it is a community or game award, in the nominations we will add as many candidates as needed to the final.

Voting stage - tie-breaks will be solved by an additional 24 hour voting/nominating period for only the awards which are involved in the tie break.
