April 7, 2001--the first ever MU* Awards was held. Over 100 people and 11 MU*s were in attendance in a huge 3-hour gala event.
An Impartial Judge.
And it's happening again on October 6, 2001 at 9 PM!
Nominees are selected by a panel of judges from a list of MU*s that submit their game through the awards website. The winners are announced at an on-line event, a la the Oscars. Winners get a cute little graphic they can put on their website ;-) and bragging rights, to boot!

ADDITIONAL ANNOUNCEMENT: To help judge the various MU*s, we need judges! To assist in this endeavor, send email to:
(Note: We apologize, but at this current juncture, only MUSH, MUX and MUSE (and similar) are allowed to enter into this contest for the following reasons:
It's extremely difficult to set a standard for excellence between different code bases. To some degree, it's not that bad, but there are many stark differences between a MUSH, for example, and an LP, and I feel it would be unfair to try and pit one against the other, considering the disparity.
There are approximately 200 MUSH/MUX/MUSEs on the 'net, and even if only a quarter of them were to enter the contest, the judges would not have enough time to give them all a fair judging.
Even with only 8 categories and 11 MU*s last time, the awards ceremony lasted almost 3 hours!!! How could we cover all the possible entries that would be needed to cover all the differences between the different kind of MU*s?
We thank you for your understanding.)
