2004 Recommended Anthropomorphics List - final update

No votes yet

2004 Recommended Anthropomorphics List - final update, January 2005

This is the final update of the fourth annual Recommended Anthropomorphics List. It has two purposes. Firstly, it is for fans who want to know what Furry movies, TV series, novels, etc. published during 2004 are worth looking for. The 2004 Recommended List is now closed.

If you find any 2005 Furry movies or comic books or comic strips, etc. that are worth recommending, please send your recommendations through the end of 2005 to:

Fred Patten
11863 West Jefferson Boulevard
Culver City, California 90230-6322
fredpatten[AT]earthlink[DOT]net

Secondly, this List is to be used as a guide for nominations to the 2004 Ursa Major Award, which will be presented at Anthrocon 2005 in Philadelphia on 7-10 July 2005 for the Best of the calendar year 2004 in the first ten categories. The List was actually started in 2001 as an aid to those fans who said, "The Award sounds like a good idea but I don't have the slightest idea what's eligible to be nominated." Read the List and find out what is eligible for the Best of 2004.

Nominations for the 4th Annual Ursa Major Award opened on 13 January (the first day of Further Confusion 2005). They will close on 15 April. The five titles in each category getting the most nominations will become the five finalists on the Final Ballot, which will be voted upon between 15 May and 10 June 2005. Anyone may send in from one to five nominations in each of the first ten categories. (The Recommended Anthropomorphic Miscellany category is not included in the Ursa Major Award, due to the inappropriateness of comparing such diverse items as art folios, models and plushies for a "best" vote.) It is not necessary to nominate in all categories. Just nominate for those that interest you.

To nominate, register online at www.ursamajorawards.org to submit your nominations, or by regular mail to:

Fred Patten
11863 West Jefferson Boulevard
Culver City, California 90230-6322
fredpatten[AT]earthlink[DOT]net

Final ballot forms will be sent only to those fans who request one, to guard against multiple voting. Fans who have already nominated or voted last year do not need to send in another request, though they should send changes of address if they have moved. Those who have registered online also qualify to vote online from 15 May. Others should send their request to the above addresses.

While the Ursa Major Award receives sponsorship and much appreciated cooperation from various conventions, we are not directly affiliated with any convention. This Award is intended to be representative of the popular views of those in the fandom; nominated by fans, and voted for by fans. The Anthropomorphic Literature and Arts Association is responsible only for the organization and promotion of the Award, and has no influence over the outcome. That is purely up to you! So don’t forget to nominate in your favorite categories, or else the works that you feel deserve to win may not!

We have adopted a suggestion to change the title of the Recommended Dramatic Series category to Recommended Dramatic Short Work or Series. This allows the inclusion of individual dramatic works besides theatrical features.

This Recommended List is posted at http://www.ursamajorawards.org/ This website includes links to as many as possible of the recommended items that have their own entries on the Internet; so if you want to know more about any of them, you can go right to its site. It also includes the previous Lists, for the benefit of those looking for recommendations of good Furry art & literature since the 21st century started.

Please remember that a title's appearance on the Recommended Anthropomorphics List is not an automatic nomination of that title for the Ursa Major Award. A single recommendation is enough to place a title on the Recommended List which may end up with twenty or more recommendations in a category, while only the top five nominees in each category will become the finalists on the voting ballot. If you wish to ensure that your favorite choices are nominated for the Award, please send in your nominations. The Award will be presented in ten categories at Anthrocon 2005 in July. See the Ursa Major website (http://www.ursamajorawards.org/) for full instructions, and to request a ballot if you wish to vote.
