Pantheon of Leather XXII
Awards Nominations 2012
The entire Leather community is invited to participate in the first round of the awards process by submitting nominations electronically. Properly submitted nominations will be passed on to a Nominations Committee which will select Nominee Finalists which will then be sent to a Selection Panel composed of individuals who received awards in 2011. This panel will vote and decide the winners.
Who Is Eligible
Any member of the Leather community is eligible to win awards with the exception of those listed in the Who Is Not Eligible statement in the next paragraph. The selection panel will determine winners based on community service in the last year. Club officers, organizers, business owners, titleholders, behind-the-scenes workers, philanthropists, writers, columnists, authors, artists, producers, Leather/latex artisans and the like are sought as nominees. We are looking for nominees who have made contributions that have directly affected the Leather community in a positive way.
