Hi all,

WP will make a funny statue model of our beloved monkey, Suzanne. I  
have tips where it can be milled quite cheap. So we got a real prize!

The idea is to end the conference sunday with 3 or 4 Suzanne Awards,  
with also an award for the developers out there!

Now there are 2 ways we can reward coding work:
- in general, for the contributions someone did last year
- based at a single feature, or project

I tend slightly to the latter. It then will be an award for "Best  
Feature". Fits nicely in the row of "Best Art" and "Best Animation".  
And of course it only applies for the work done in the previous year.

The idea is to preselect nominations first, and have the conference  
attendees do the final vote. For the art program a couple of people  
(Bart, me, whoever shows up) will do a pre-selection and official  
How to do this for 'best feature'?

We could do it at the blender.org site, with a poll (after collecting  
30-40 or so ourselves). Any more ideas, comments?


(BTW, official BF dudes are excluded from the awards. ;-)
