  • The Sonic Site Awards 2002: PHASE 3 CEREMONY - The Winners!

    Welcome one, welcome all, to the biggest event in the Sonic online community calendar! That's right, it's the Sonic Site Awards 2002! We had a fantastic time last year, discovering all sorts of brand new Sonic fan sites and becoming closer as a community. This time, we're hosting a big online party to celebrate the winners of 2002, and you're all invited!


    Bring your best suit/dress, and tune in to our Phase 3 Ceremony today at 3:00pm GMT (10:00am EST in the US). Below you'll find links to the Sonic Stadium MB, which will include a special forum to chat about the SSA and the awards; the AOL Instant Messenger Chat Room, so you can chat to other live; and soon throughout the day you'll find special SSA AIM Buddy Icons to use!

    The SSA Ceremony Broadcast can be listened to also - click the links below. Due to some weirdness, it comes in an oddly-evened out two-parter - click Part 1, then when that is finished, click on Part 2. It's in MP3 format, so make sure you got Windows Media Player or WinAmp at the ready!

    You'll notice that the Awards for each category will appear one by one over the course of the night as well, so that if you haven't caught the broadcast, you'll be able to see the winners in text. You'll also be able to pick up your award this way, if you are the winner of the category in which the award is being displayed for!

    Listen to the Ceremony Broadcast!

    SSA 2002: The Winners!

    Well, what a year it has been. The Sonic Site Awards is now officially over, and Shadow of a Hedgehog remains the winner of the SSA for this year. As well as some records broken I feel - Neon Chaos' site has won the most consecutive Sonic Site Awards in one year. Well done to him!

    Neon Chaos has made an excellent impression with Shadow of a Hedgehog this year - although changing the layout several times didn't seem to faze the visitors, the emphasis on SoaH was always innovation, a thing that is all too little in this Online Community, and a point that sites such as SoaH and the Sonic Stadium are trying to enforce. Neon, congratulations!

    And well done to all of you - the nominees, the fans of the nominees' sites, and the winners. Next year is all about making things better and improving them. If you haven't won this year, then do not fear, you were good enough to become nominated by the people, and that in itself makes you a winner!
