This community has been dead for quite some time. I greatly appreciate the effort everyone put into the community during the last few rounds; however, I would like the feedback of the community in order to see if anyone is still interested. I don't know how much time I will be able to devote here, so if anyone is interested in helping out or even taking over, please leave a comment. I founded this community because there wasn't a great amount of Pirates of the Caribbean communities out there, especially award themes. However, since all the movies have come out, I would like the opinions of the members to see if anyone is still interested. Otherwise, despite the work some put into it, I will most likely shut down the community. Yet if it does stay, I would like to make a few changes, particularly around making banners for all the winners, if anyone is interested please let me know.

Thank you.

First off, I would like to apologize about the recognition of the winners taking almost a month to be posted. Life got in the way with testing and finals. However, since it is summer I am going to spend more time revamping this community and getting it functional again. I need the help of all the members in order to do this. Please, if you have any suggestions or would like to be a co-mod of the community, ask. We are always looking for more to get this community rolling, and it lies within our members.

Spiritually, Ecumenically, Grammatically -- Special Category is...Stormy Weather: any icon that features a scene from all three movies depicting a storm or stormy weather.

The Winners Are AnnouncedCollapse )
Nominations are Open!

Round Three voting is finally here! I realize that this community has been down for quite some time, so I would love to have just as many and more nominations for round 4. Instructions for how to vote are located beneath the lj-cut. Also, since the nomination categories were recently changed, the two sets of nominations that were to the old categories have been rearranged within the category titles. Sorry for any conclusion. The format of the voting is slightly messed up, so please just ignore that when voting.

But Why's The Rum Gone?Collapse )

Header Contest:

In order to get the community rolling again, irishborn12 and aftereightmints, have decided to ask our members for some help. There is going to be a header contest for all that are interested. All headers must be submitted by Friday, April 13, 2007. The community will vote for the best header, which will then be placed as the default for the community. All comments will be screened.

Rules for Contest:
» All headers must be between 530x200 and 562x235
» All headers must have the words, "Rum_Awards" somewhere on the header
» Please make a matching icon, words are not required for the icon but encouraged, for the community. (100x100, or smaller)
» Each icon and header must be new, original work
» Include pictures from Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man's Chest, or At World's End. Also, the pictures can be from premiers.

Otherwise, the sky is the limit on your creativity. If there are any questions please feel free to ask. Enjoy!

Category Info:

In order to make the process of nominating easier. We have decided to reduce the amount of categories one has to nominate for, in order to make the process quicker.

It has been months since rum_awards has been fully functional, and being the creator and primary mod I would like to get this community back on its feet.

Nominations for Round 2 are going to continue until we get at least three more entries, or enough nominations. I realize that many people have probably lost interest in the community but I feel that it could be great, if we all just put a little more effort. Even if you have only one icon to post, please do so. Everything helps out the community.

Also, banners would be great for the winners of each round. If anyone is interested in helping to make banners, please comment below.

Seeing as aftereightmints and myself have kind of let the community slide downhill, I think it would be a good idea to open co-mod applications once more, for anyone that is interested. I am looking for two more people who would like to get this community going once more. If you are interested, please leave a comment in the co-mod applications. If you applied in the beginning, you are more than welcome to apply again.

I would also like to introduce our sister sight, which is not pirate based, but looking for members.
