After what has been a long year, on and off the pitch, we at RL Oceania will be closing out 2020 with our annual Community Awards. The awards are presented in celebration of the amazing players, teams and community members that go above and beyond for Oceanic Rocket League. We invited you to not only join us in our celebrations, but also to have your say on who our many winners will be!

Three phases will help determine who our nominees and winners are.
Phase One - Nominations - Nov 17th to Nov 29th
In our first phase we invite you, the public, to nominate entrants for 3 of our 13 categories; 2020 Streamer of the Year, 2020 Community Member of the Year and 2020 Goal of the Year.
You may submit your nominations here prior to the next phase. Submitted nominations will be reviewed and once approved, will be put forward for the second phase; Public Voting.
Phase Two - Public Voting - Nov 29th to Dec 12th
The second phase will see all categories opened to public voting, as it has been since the inception of the Community Awards. Only residents of Oceania are permitted to submit votes during this phase. Public Voting will determine winners for almost every category, excluding the 2020 Rising Star and the 2020 Player of the Year, which will be decided in our final phase.
Phase Three - Peer Voting - Dec 12th to Awards Night
To determine the winners of the 2020 Rising Star and 2020 Player of the Year, these categories will be subject to peer voting.
First, we will find the top 20 players in the Player of the Year category through public voting. These 20 players will then be invited to place votes on other players to determine the 2020 Player of the Year. They will not be permitted to vote for themselves.
These 20 players will also be invited to place votes on the top 10 players from the 2020 Rising Star category, who will also be invited to place votes on their peers to determine the winner.
On the 19th of December, we will be live with the 2020 RL Oceania Community Awards, where we will be announcing all the winners! We look forward to celebrating this crazy year of Rocket Powered action and hope to see you there!
Remember that nominations start now and are open until 29th of November, so be sure to make your submissions!
