Whilst some might (and reasonably say) that it is hard to objectively judge these categories – mostly because LARP players can each only go to a limited number of games per year I still see great value in LARP awards. It is a forum for making each LARPers aware of what is going on and perhaps eventually it will help some games survive and thrive. Also if you have been to an event where something or someone was exceptional – it is a good opportunity to publicly say so.
