I plan on being in this one day. You all know I make some damn good concepts. ;) Also, chrisCLEMENT will be in this one day too. He is well deserving of it.

If there was a Creamer for the best The Creamers branding then you'd have my nomination. Great job setting this up Doug and Matt!

This is an awesome idea. I think it should be pinned and new additions should be added to the OP each year. Regardless, congratulations to everyone who won!

Really sending me down nostalgia lane with those hall of fame threads! I remember those fondly, really kept me going wanting to make concepts and were always a great inspiration (although I know I haven't been very active the past few years). Great idea to show everyone what a great project truly is. Congratulations!

Great idea guys. There have been a lot of developments in the last week aimed at improving the quality of concepts here at CCSLC and for that I am very grateful.

Congrats to all the charter members. I look forward to the awards ceremony.

I'm going to have to up my game and actually complete a series to get in on this.

This may be the coolest thing I've ever seen. Love all the work going into this. I have a feeling you're going to make the concepts section a place where people strive to make great work again.

Holy Doodle...

I'm away on holidays, so I've been off the grid for a few days.

I found some wi-fi this morning, logged in and WHAM...

I'm very honoured and very grateful.

This is an ambitious, well thought-out, and so far very well crafted concept.

I'm gonna put the avatar in place when I get home and will be wearing it proudly.

Thanks again guys.

The best thing about this is that it's going to make people work harder for better concepts and may very well improve the whole concept board altogether. It's going to be great for the community in the long run.

If we want to go old school, AAO, RogerClemente and Discrimihater had some absolute stellar concepts all around in the mid-2000s.

Future consideration to Patchez, the images he creates with our work are stellar.

I would certainly second this as I really appreciate him helping me out & converting my league.

As a bit of a kickoff, we're going to be announcing finalists for the 2013 Creamer Awards in the coming weeks, with the "Awards Show" being held on April 1st. Stay tuned!

Maybe Monica Bisordi can be involved in the awards show that day.

Or you could move it to the next day. Just sayin'.

// GUIDELINES //

Recipients of the prestigious Creamer Award will be measured against the following guidelines:

  • Quality over Quantity (10 exceptional concepts are better than 95 standard concepts)
  • Original Ideas
  • Deep and Well Rounded (does the concept go above and beyond?)
  • Concept Originated on or near the CCSLC

None of these criteria are impossible by any means, but they will require dedication, innovation, and a certain "x-factor" that is not found commonly in concepts.

// AWARDS //

On an ongoing basis, we will be awarding 6 awards per year:

  • Best Overall Concept
  • Best (Individual Sport) Concept
  • Best Concept Series
  • Rookie Of The Year
  • Most Improved
  • Best C&C

...

I'm gunning for Rookie or Most Improved.

Although, I technically first posted a third kit in August 2013, so maybe not Rookie.

The way The Creamer Academy Awards will be run is that the 2014 Creamer Awards will recognize all the work and activity completed in 2013. Any work completed in this calendar year will be eligible for the 2015 Creamer Awards.

/// Reasoning ///

These awards are not a competition. We don't want people rushing their concepts, trying to sneak in under-the-wire to make the awards. In fact, we're hoping for the exact opposite, that this causes the artists of this forum to slow down and really dive into their concepts. We're trying to recognize the artists and members who go above and beyond, even when there wasn't seemingly an award for it.

Don't worry -- The old guard will be well represented. :)

This is also amazing for you guys running this. I mean that's a lot of work to go through most of the well done concepts in 2013. Finding one concept for the Concept of the Year will not only be a lot of searching, but a lot of debate. Kudos to you guys for taking your time out of the day to hold something like this.
