Welcome, Shawols! What a year it's been. I think many of us can agree that 2012 was packed with SHINee events that we'll always remember. Minho's first leading drama role, Taemin blossoming as a full-fledged solo singer, Onew and Jonghyun joining Twitter, Key's solo venture as the main character in a musical, SHINee's first ballad single, and of course their long-awaited Sherlock comeback.. 2012 was epic through and through! What better way to reflect upon the past year than resurrecting SFI's time-honored tradition, The End of the Year (ETY) Awards.

Tell Me More!
For those who are new to the awards (as are many of us staff), we'll guide you through the whole thing with this thread! First off, the ETY Awards are made up of a slew of categories spotlighting the best of SHINee and Shawols throughout the year. Each category, such as "Favorite TV Show Appearance", will offer a selection of nominees for everyone to vote on. At the end of the voting period, the nominees with the most votes will win the award in that category for the year.

There are two types of categories: (1) SHINee categories, where the nominees highlight SHINee's promotions, events, and happenings that were unique to 2012, and (2) Shawol categories, where the award nominees come from Shawols just like you -- our very own forum members' artwork, fanaccounts, fanfictions, and more.

Rock The Vote
Voting is simple! To cast your votes, simply go through each of the voting threads below and select your choice of nominee from each category.

We will provide supplementary links for many of the categories. For example, clicking on the four nominee links under the "Favorite Etude Concept" category will link you to the four CFs SHINee filmed for Etude this year. After refreshing your memory on them all, you can more clearly vote on your favorite. Please read the thread descriptions and consider all the nominees before casting your vote.

Voting Thread #1 (SHINee)
Voting Thread #2 (SHINee)
Voting Thread #3 (Shawols)
Voting Thread #4 (Shawols)

The voting period spans from December 15th to December 29th at 11:59 PM KST. Winners will be compiled and announced by December 31st, rounding the year off with a bang. Don't wait until the last minute, be sure to get your votes in asap!

Victory Perks
We can't leave our deserving winners hanging! For the Shawol categories, our winners will receive the following benefits.
(1) One free raffle entry for an autographed Sherlock album. (Raffle to open in 2013.)
(2) Selection from a set of exclusive signature graphics crafted by SFI's graphic designers.
(3) Member title customization, a privilege usually only available to staff and donors.
(4) Winning thread crowned an ETY Award Winner until next year's awards; the thread will be pinned and featured at the top of its respective forum for all to see (when applicable).

So what are you waiting for, Shawols? There's a year's worth of memories waiting for you to vote on! Have fun going through the categories and remembering the good times we've had in journeying through this year with SHINee. While going through the memories of our past, remember to look forward to the upcoming year as well -- there's so much more to come!

Questions & Answers
Q: Why does SFI hold these awards?
A: Time passes so fast that it's often difficult to remember exactly how much amazing stuff happened in the past. The ETY Awards are both a way for Shawols to interactively pinpoint their favorites of the year, as well as a nostalgic way to reminisce on everything SHINee has given us throughout the year. (Which is why we advocate going through the links!)

Q: Why are the categories split into different poll threads and not just together in one big thread?
A: There is a limit on the number of polls you are allowed to make for each thread.

Q: Why wasn't I picked?
A: There are many talented members of SHINee Forums International and we unfortunately can't put everyone up for a category.

Q: How can I become a nominee?
A: Nominee spots for the 2012 awards are closed. We plan to have the ETY Awards every year, so if you continue to post actively, follow the rules, and support SFI and SHINee you will be considered for next year's awards.

Give us a hand by helping us promote the awards on other sites!

I love this. I love being able to revisit every Shinee activity or "moment" that happened this year. I also love voting for my favorite moments even though it completely rips my heart out.

Shawols are indeed one of most (if not the most) friendliest (friendly) fandoms out there. This is.. I didn't look up yet and even if I wasn't picked, I am going to vote, because you all deserve it so much. I love you guys <3
