This one has just been released by Sébastien Nagel. A new thing in AIDA is to honor individuals and groups by giving them annual prices, just like any Oscar. I forward the official message here to let DB's pack of aquatic apes get a saying as well. Mind that the votes given counts merely 50% totally, where the value of the additional 50% is given by a selected panel in AIDA (or in this case, the AIDA's suborgan ICARE). The rules ICARE follows are also included below.

And yeah, I'd like comments about this move and the procedure.

2003 ICARE Trophies

As an international association affiliated with AIDA – though independent in internal operations – starting this year, ICARE has decided to issue awards to a certain number of recognized representatives in various freediving categories, with representation currently in existence in some sports and artistic endeavours, the idea is to promote and obtain recognition for our sport.

ICARE has chosen seven categories this year, as specified below. However, the door remains open for potential new categories for future years.

Having the same name as our association – ICARE has naturally been chosen as the title for these trophies, which are as follows:

- ICARE Best Female Freediver 2003

- ICARE Best Male Freediver 2003

- ICARE Best Female Rookie 2003

- ICARE Best Male Rookie 2003

- ICARE Best National Institution 2003

- ICARE Best Captain/Coach 2003

- ICARE Best International Judge 2003

In addition, in order to give popular significance to these awards, and to reflect as much of the general opinion of the freediving community as possible, nominations and elections will proceed as follows:

Nominations

From January 1st to November 15th each year, anyone interested may submit a recommendation for nomination, with a brief argument, to ICARE’s office by mail or by email, to the following address:

I C A R E
Rue du Petit-Beaulieu 4
1004 Lausanne / VD
S W I T Z E R L A N D

Email: [email protected]

ICARE‘s office will then select the four best nominations for each category, according to numbers and interest in the proposals received.

By category, these four nominations will then be submitted for election.

Elections

From November 16th to December 15th each year, any interested individual may participate in the elections in writing, pursuant to the principles mentioned above. One individual = one vote per category!

The total votes received will count for 50% of the final pick of winners. The remaining 50% of the results will consist of internal votes of ICARE staff members.

However, seeing that the majority of ICARE members are also International AIDA judges, there will be an exception for the category of "Best International Judge", where the total votes received by mail will be consist of 100% of the results.

Counting of the votes & Results

The counting of the votes will be done by ICARE, in the presence and under control of two neutral people who do not belong to the association.

Circulation of the final results and allocation of awards will be done between December 15th and 25th each year.

Given the human criteria and abstracts that determine the results, as well as the absence of any material or financial issues, any recourse or claims with regard to these results will be excluded.

We hope that you will be tempted by this original project, and we look forward to your participation in order that it may be a success.
