Paizo Publishing was pleased to learn this last week that ennieawards.com announced Paizo's nomination for 10 ENnie Awards.
"The ENnies are without a doubt the most prestigious awards in gaming, and we're thrilled to be nominated again this year," said Erik Mona, Paizo's Publisher. "I encourage all Paizo readers to go out and vote for their favorite products online!"
Ennieawards.com states: "The Gen Con EN World RPG Awards (the "ENnies") are an annual fan-based celebration of excellence in tabletop roleplaying gaming. The ENnies give game designers, writers and artists the recognition they deserve. It is a peoples' choice award, and the final winners are voted upon by the gaming public at EN World.
"The ENnies were created in 2001 as an annual award ceremony, hosted by the leading D&D/d20 system fan site, EN World in partnership with Eric Noah's Unofficial D&D 3rd Edition News. Since they were originally conceived the ENnies have expanded from an Internet-based awards selection to an annual award ceremony at Gen Con Indy. The ENnies have also branched out from their roots as an award ceremony focused upon d20 system publishers and products to celebrate the achievements of all tabletop RPGs and the publishers and products that support them."
