Deadline for the 2014 Pegasus Nominating Ballot is 12:01AM PDT, July 27, 2014


Ballots should be filled out on line or submitted by mail to:


OVFF

3824 Patricia Drive

Columbus, OH, 43220


You may select five artists/songs per category. Need ideas? Check out the results of the Brainstorming Poll!



Ballots submitted using this form must be submitted by 12:01AM PDT, July 27, 2014 (that means the first minute after July 27 ends on the West coast of the US). Ballots submitted by surface mail must be received in Columbus, OH by July 25, 2014.


*NOTE* Due to unforeseen circumstances, we’ve been forced to move the ballot closing to Sunday, July 27. We apologise¬†for the mid-season shift in the schedule.


Each person may only submit one Nominating Ballot.


We strongly encourage you to copy & distribute this ballot as widely as possible within the filk community. You do not need to be a member of the convention to vote.


Eligibility: If a song has won a Pegasus in the past, it is not eligible for Nomination. Writer/Composers and Performers who won in 2009 – 2013 are not eligible in the same category in 2014. See the current Winners List for non-eligible songs. See The Rules for more details on eligibility requirements. Send mail to pegasus at ovff.org if you have any questions.


Please keep in mind that the Pegasus Awards are for excellence in Filking, not in music in general, or even funny music in general. Nominated songs should be part, one way or another, of the music of the filk community, and for “Best Performer” and “Best Composer”, people you nominate should be participating members of the filk community.


Thank you for your participation!!

As is my custom, I've collected all the con reports from OVFF that I can locate in my memories, for both my own benefit and for the community.

A couple of caveats, since this has come up in the past:


  1. I find these by perusing my own friends list. Contrary to popular myth, I don't actually know every single person in filk (There must be at least 4 people I'm unacquainted with. I'm sure of it. *grin*), and also I'm doing it by hand and it's easy to miss one. If you know of a report that is not contained on my index, please point me to it.
  2. If an entry I link to is friends-locked such that you cannot see it, you'll need to discuss that with the journal's author, not me. I have no control over the locks other people put on their spaces.
That aside, here's the list so far. I'll add to it as people point me to more or I see new ones posted.

OVFF 2011 Con Reports
autographedcat: (Default)
Well, the nominations have been counted, and the final ballot has been prepared. Ladies and gentlemen, your 2011 Pegasus Ballot awaits:

http://www.ovff.org/pegasus/2011finalballot.html

And my, what a ballot we have. Perhaps I'm a romantic, but this is one bad-ass ballot. I could not compose a better one, at least not one that would perform as well. Truly, this ballot represents the best filk has to offer, and is destined to be a classic.

All that is left, dear friends, is for you to go and vote. In order to make sure you can evaluate every single song, composer, and performer nominated, sound samples are available right there on the ballot page. So go, listen, and vote your favourites.

[livejournal.com profile] kitanzi and I are sitting at our gate at the Columbus airport, waiting for our slightly delayed flight to board. We had a fantastic weekend, and I will likely post a more complete report later.

Meanwhile, I've been scanning back to try and catch con reports that were made during the convention (laptops and smartphones have made this a much harder process than it was when I started doing it eight years ago!) and will continue to collect them going forward, as I see them. If you know of a report I don't have on hand, please drop me a note in comments.

Here's the complete list of reports that I have found.

If you're inclined towards Twitter, there are a number of entries from the last few days with the hashtag #ovff.

[NB. Due to the nature of friends-locking posts, some entries on this list may not be visible to all persons. Please contact any person whose entry you cannot see directly if you want to find out what they had to say. I apologise in advance for any inconvenience.]

Well, not *that* young, but...

I mentioned in my last post that I found I still had a large assortment of Gafilk photos to upload. When I actually set about doing this, I was astonished to discover that not only did I have Gafilk photos I had never uploaded, but in fact photos from last year's OVFF as well. So I've gone through them all, cleaned them up a bit, and uploaded them for your enjoyment:

Ohio Valley Filk Festival 2008
Georgia Filk Convention 2009

There are a lot fewer photos from Gafilk this year, because I spent most of the weekend running around putting out little fires, but I did manage to get to a couple of concerts with my camera. (I attended bits of other programming, I just didn't have the lens with me.)

[livejournal.com profile] kitanzi and I got home about 2:30pm, and have since been fed and watered.  All is well.  Con report to follow.

As is my habit, I have collected all of the LJ reports regarding OVFF here.  Please link me to any I've missed, to create the most complete record possible.  Thanks!

Last night I got a head start on the traditional post-con melancholy, but I had a fantastic weekend at OVFF.  Currently sitting at the airport waiting for our flight, for which we arrived insanely early (also traditional, but once we were both awake there was no real point in hanging out -- [livejournal.com profile] cadhla and [livejournal.com profile] sweetmusic_27 were both asleep still, and there was no one in the lobby, so we just came on out to the airport, dropped off the car, got through security and found some breakfast.  We should arrive in Atlanta sometime around noon, so we should be home by 2pm or so.

More later.  I love you all.

Home.

Just wanted to check in. We got back home from OVFF yesterday at about 5pm Atlanta time. We had a wonderful time. More detail and pictures to follow.

My pants are not entirely bankrupt, but are certainly experiencing a budget crunch, so let me know if there's something I should see that I may have missed while I was away.

As I do every year, I'm collecting con reports in my memories. I've been skipping posts (like this one) that just say "Got home, great time, more later". If you see any con reports I've missed, please point me at those as well.

Back to work...
