July 1, 2001 - ninety nominees announced! voting has begun...

Welcome to the third annual KANGA awards! Or, Kangarooland's Annual Nine Glimmer Awards. You may prefer to use the KANGA term. This KANGA Hanson Award competition, is proudly brought to you by Kangarooland's Hanson Website.

The 1st KANGA Awards (1999) and 2nd KANGA AWARDS (2000) were quite a success and top Hanson webmasters were honored with the title they deserved! This year we look forward to recognizing even more great Hanson websites and their dedicated webmasters!

(( july 1, 2001 update )) - LORDY! What a task that was :) I've somehow managed to get through all of the wonderful submissions that you guys sent in and was able to choose the final nominees for each of the nine categories (for more info on each category, please refer to the table below). Picking the nominees this year was so crazy, there were just TOO many great sites to choose from... so seeing as though I make the rules around here *snicker* I decided it wouldn't hurt to make all nine categories have 10 possible nominees (as opposed to previous years where i've only had five for most categories). I honestly don't think I could of picked five for each of them if I had to! Wait until you see these sites... you'll feel my pain!! haha... but seriously guys, I want to comment on how proud I am as a Hanson fan right now. The overwhelming support of Hanson webmasters and their visitors was so amazing.. I literally received well over 3,000 submissions! Isn't that fantastic? Can you feel the love in this room? Furthermore, these sites are AMAZING! I can't believe how talented and dedicated so many fans are... it was quite the experience for me as not only a webmaster.. but as a fan... to visit so many sites and see how much the fans still love this band and still are there supporting them every step of the way. So I want to thank all of you who submitted your sites, and those of you who submitted site that you admire... I truly enjoyed visiting them all and I would love to recognize all of you for your hard work through this award competition.. but well.. that would make it pointless now, wouldn't it? haha. I want you all to know that your hard work and effort is well worth it! I know Ike, Tay and Zac would be so proud of all of you!

Having said that, I present to you the FINAL ninety.. (yes.. ninety! i swear next year it's gonna be in the thousands.. haha..) nominees! I strongly urge all of you to surf through these sites and truly appreciate what Hanson fan dedication is. I promise you won't regret it!! Congratulations to all of the final nominees... please encourage your visitors to vote for your site! ( if you did not recieve a voting banner through e-mail, please let me know). Everyone, please continue to scroll down the page to vote for your choices in each of the nine categories... and have fun choosing one from each, trust me.. it's difficult!!

I also want to comment that some categories (weirdest title, best graphics, etc.) don't really commend the hard work that is put into these sites. I want to say that I also took the effort of not only picking the top 10 best sites for each of those non-content related categories... but I also took into account the incredible hard work and effort that has also gone into the sites themselves. So basically, those sites were also judged on site content among other things as well. I want to let all of those webmasters know that we appreciate your site much more than just for it's title, graphics, theme, etc.!!

Thanks again to everyone who has taken part in submitting and advertising for KANGA 2001 - your efforts are truly appreciated!! Okay, I think I'm finished rambling... time to vote!

I will stop taking votes on August 1st, 2001! Winners will also be announced then.
