The South Pacific Awards of 2022: Llamas are Superior to Geese

The South Pacific Awards of 2022: Llamas are Superior to Geese

We might almost be a month into the new year, however that should never mean we are to forget about the year behind us. 2022 was an eventful year. Not only in the real-world but also here in the South Pacific.

Therefore, on behalf of the Ministry of Culture, I present to you to the official award ceremony of the South Pacific, commemorating the myriad of events that took place in this region over the past year.

The rules are simple, for each category you may only nominate one player/event/“thing”. When the voting period comes around, again, you may only choose one nominee. Also, you are not required to nominate or vote for every category. You can pick and choose the ones you want to do.

Important Dates and Info

  • The nominations period will last from January 19-January 23rd at 6pm EST.
  • The voting period will start on the 23rd, immediately after the closure of the nominations period and will last until January 27th.
