e621 has been officially nominated for an award

In category: General

We got nominated for an Ursa Major award!

▼ What is it?

More formally known as the Annual Anthropomorphic Literature and Arts Award, the Ursa Major Award is presented annually for excellence in the furry arts. It is intended as Anthropomorphic (a.k.a. Furry) Fandom's equivalent of the Hugo Award ® presented by the World Science Fiction Society, mystery fandom's Anthony Award, horror fandom's Bram Stoker Award, and so forth. Anyone may nominate and vote for candidates for the Awards. These Awards are decided by the fans, not by a committee.

The category we got nominated for is Best Website; this year competing with FurAffinity, SoFurry, WikiFur, and Culturally F'd. FurAffinity won this award three times (2014, 2013, and 2012) and this is our first time being nominated.

A few notable past winners from other categories:
- Furry Force by CollegeHumor (Best Anthropomorphic Dramatic Short Work or Series, 2014)
- Twokinds by Tom Fischbach (Best Anthropomorphic Graphic Story, 2010)
- Dog's Days of Summer by Blotch (Best Anthropomorphic Other Literary Work, 2008)
- Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire (Best Anthropomorphic Game, 2014)

VOTING HAS CLOSED. THE RESULTS WILL BE POSTED ON MAY 20-22. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE NOMINEES.


majorly cool


Huh, this seems kinda coo-
>FNAF 3 nominated for best game
aaaaaaaaand all respect and credibility is lost~

Also no Bojack Horseman for best show, but Littlest frigging Pet Shop makes it on the list? People seriously watch that crap in an unironic way!?


That's nice, and I know this site deserves it for its quality control and administration, but I somehow doubt we'll outnumber FA.

Nonsense my friend, this is war. For E6-Sparta!!! >:D


Nice to see e6 getting some recognition, but it looks like we have some harsh competition though.

It's pretty hard for Bojack Horseman to compete by popularity considering it's only on Netflix.


Nominating a porn website... Ok why not! Hehe :3

image board, not porn site. e6 has art of all kinds (aside from human only content of course), explicit (porn), safe (non-porn), and questionable (anywhere between porn and non-porn).

FNAF3 for best game...so...jump scares count for this award? since that and the backstory are pretty much that series main selling points.

as for FA having won 3 times in a row in the past. how does the furry fandom site with one of THE most drama prone/problematic histories (compared to pretty much any other furry site) ever manage to win any award? let alone this one 3 years in a row. that's ridiculous.

and of course, congrats to e621. hopefully this site shall win.

It is fan-voted though. Usually, the most popular gets the most votes but there has been upsets

On one hand, sure, you have a point, but on the other how does an even more obscure title like Tiger's Eye happen to suddenly make the list? Or hell, even Danger Mouse for that matter.


I love so much that the "Furry Force" short films by CollegeHumor have won.


It's an honor that the site is nominated anyway

We're all proud, like parents


Seems it was a good idea joining this site.
Celebration!

I'm surprised Weasyl didn't make it on the list, considering it's a more sleek (and less buggy) alternative to SoFurry in terms of artists uploading uncompressed images to their galleries. In either case, since I don't have experience with the other fields, I voted for e621 as 1st and Wikifur as 2nd (gotta love reference sites), since the other website options have not been kind to me.

Same!


Voted for E621 to be 1st :D Let's hope that it'll come true :3


e621 may not win the popularity contest, but at least we know it's better than FA.


Voted for e6

Is it a major award ?


So is this an award for the best furry website, or... Just what is this? I'm actually very curious to know!

While the remake may or may not be "obscure", the name certainly isn't, at least among furry cartoon fans.

Or it shouldn't be, dammit. :P
