Another vote for Michael O'Brien for the Thurston. I reached out to him for some feedback on a product that he is involved with, but isn't his and he wrote back a lengthy personal reply with no shortage of information and recommendations.

I didn't buy a lot of new material in 2020, so I only have one vote for each category but:

1. Cyber Secrets by Colin Mcleod. Forget doing the same i.D and star sign effect that everyone else is doing, this teaches some great principles to create miracles in your virtual show.

Thurston: Simple Draws creator Andre. Excellent app, extremely nice guy and customer service can't be beat.

I personally don’t think creators should be asking their friends to vote but at the end of the day it is an award to show that the community appreciates you. For me, knowing that people voted without me telling them to means more than winning any award. I honestly didn’t even know this was a thing till someone tagged me lol. Again, it’s all bout knowing that your work is appreciated. So thank you friends! Don’t fret too much. It could be a coincidence.

As a reminder, we did keep Jamie's original rules in tact, and it does state the following:

Quote:
If you have been nominated and want to encourage your pals to take part... it is impossible to police or enforce a "no asking your clients, friends, etc to vote" rule and, personally, I think it's silly to ask people not to share their excitement. How can you have a contest if you're not allowed to talk about it?! On that note, I ask that you please...

Don't offer financial incentives.
Encourage people to vote for 3, not just one.
Limit the number of your announcements to 3 times.
Creators are allowed to vote for their own releases.


I trust people (perhaps that's a fault, lol) but I also trust the voting public to choose what they truly feel is the best and not just what someone tells them to do.



I can certainly see how this can be a point of controversy, but it is technically within the rules and is consistent with the rules in years past. I will kindly point out that it does say to encourage people to vote for 3 effects, not just one. With that said, we can openly discuss any proposed changes to the rules for next year's voting, but it is unfair to do so in the middle of the current vote.

We are in the digital ages and it’s ok to promote yourself and your products
and let people know about some competition or some things that are happening on the internet.
I got and get many messages from many dealers that try
to promote themselves and many messages from friends that I know.

I se the Bakore BM project in every show and its one
of the best effects for Zoom.
I also use Snaps which is very good.
I know all the names that voted for Bakore and none
of them has any business connections with Bakore.
On the other hand, I don’t know who are the people that complained
because most of them has no real nAme...
