[dropcap]A[/dropcap] longstanding annual tradition in the Micras community continues this month as a call for nominations has been issued for the 14th installment of the community’s FNORD Awards.
A total of fourteen awards are currently planned to be presented to micronationalists to recognize their achievements in a variety of cultural, political, economic and community-related efforts. Included again this year is the community’s most prestigious award, the Odlum Award for Overall Achievement, which is given to a veteran micronationalist in recognition of their long-term contributions to the community.
This year’s awards are being organized by Ric Lyon, who will chair a judging panel consisting of himself and Micras veterans, Jack de Montfort and Orion Ilios. The awards are scheduled to be presented to recipients on Norton Day (January 8), which celebrates the 19th century micronational pioneer, Joshua Norton (aka. Emperor Norton).
Nominations may be made by any interested person by replying to the designated thread at the Hub.mn community forums.
