Best of 2012 Awards – Acts/Halftime

Oct 23, 12 • Best of Awards, Featured, GeneralComments Off

It’s that time of year again, our final push to the annual Best of Awards….today we look at the touring act category.

All week I will be posting a blog about the different categories, looking for our readers to engage and share their favorites.

Quick recap of how this works:

1.  All year we accept nominations in each category.  You can nominate anything you’ve seen, read about, like, and of course you can nominate yourself.  Nominations close on November 15th.
2.  On November 16th Nominations are collected and sent to our panel for review.
3.  Panelists consider all nominations and other yearly highlights to pick their favorites.
4.  Results are tabulated and announced on December 3rd, 2012.

Our first category is:

Best Act:
The touring act or halftime show that excels in providing quality entertainment for your fans. Touring acts, halftime acts and non-mascot performers are considered. Consider drawing power, quality, cooperation of the act, media, and value.

While long standing acts like Red Panda Acrobat and Quick Change dominate this category, occasionally fresh new acts burst onto the scene and take the top honors, like the Kings Firecrackers did in 2009.

What was your favorite act in 2012?  This can be an act you saw, worked with or even one you just watched on YouTube and wanted to hire.  Let us know.

Submit your nomination on the CONTACT US page at .  The form has a drop-down menu labeled “I am interested in”.  Select “BEST OF AWARD SUBMISSIONS”, then select the category of your submission.

Be sure to submit your favorite before the November 15th cut-off date so our Panel will receive your nomination.  Also feel free to add comments or thoughts about why you like them or links to any additional information our panel should consider.

Thank you!
