The Rules:

  • You can nominate three caches in the following categories.
    • Best Traditional Cache
    • Best Multi Cache
    • Best Puzzle/Mystery Cache
  • You can only nominate one cache in the remaining categories.
  • There will be a maximum of 30 caches to vote on in any one category, if more 30 caches are nominated, they must receive more than 1 nomination from different people to be eligible. If more than 30 caches are still nominated, they will need 3 nominations etc.
  • The caches must be placed in Victoria during 2013.
  • The caches must still be active at the end of 2013.
  • You can NOT nominate a cache you have placed, a photo you have taken or a log you have written.
  • Photos MUST be online on a cache log.
  • Logs nominated for Best Log are to ONLY have been edited when they were made.
You don't need to have nominated a cache or even have voted in the awards to attend the event.

According to my DB there are 3409 caches published (on GC alone) in 2013 that are still active and eligible to be nominated, so there are plenty of caches to choose from...... go to it!
