Criticism of Ursa Major Awards
"The 2003 Ursa Major Award nominees are out. And 2003 really shows off why these awards are never taken seriously. Nevermind that they're just a website promotion for the future awards (you really see any of the winners putting "Ursa Major Award Winning _blank_" on their publications?), but I'd be surprised if anyone really showed up to the award ceremonies.
Let's point out the big problems, shall we? I've already made a declaration for new categories to make these even remotely worthwhile for the Furry Fandom. The current UM awards present awards (last I checked, just a framed "WINNER" item, no statues, no plaques, nothing that anyone really would want to hang on a wall or put on a shelf) for Best Anthropomorphic Motion Picture, TV Series, Novel, Short Story, Other Literary Work, Comic Book, Comic Strip, Fanzine, Published Illustration and Game."
