It's that time of year again: the "OGEMID - Of The Year" awards, now in its fifth year. Past winners of the Arbitration Decision of the Year have been CMS v. Argentina (Ad Hoc Committee Decision) in 2007, Plama v. Bulgaria (Final Award) in 2008, the Abyei arbitration in 2009 and the Eureko v. Slovak Republic jurisdictional decision in 2010.

The categories this year are, once again:
- The Arbitration Decision of the Year 2011
- The "most controversial or surprising" Arbitration Decision of the Year 2011
- The IDR-related Article of the Year 2011
- The IDR-related Book of the Year 2011
The process shall be as follows:
Please send your nominations in any category to one of the organizers, Baiju Vasani (Crowell & Moring), Mike McIlwrath (General Electric), Sophie Nappert (3 Verulam Buildings), Hernan Pérez Loose (Coronel & Pérez), John Gaffney (King & Spalding) or Sébastien Manciaux (University of Bourgogne, CREDIMI).
Nominations will close on December 14th, 2011. Following the nomination period, a short list of nominations in all categories will be circulated on OGEMID. All OGEMID participants can then vote for one nomination in each category from the short list. The results of the vote will be announced on OGEMID in January 2012.
Remember, all nominations are confidential, and should come with a short statement indicating why it is worthy of the title. You can nominate and vote for your own work or award or ones associated with your firm/company/institution. However, in the case of a close vote, the organizers will take this type of voting into account.
Of course, this exercise does not represent to be scientific or overly serious; just a way for us as a global online community to give recognition to some of the work we have accomplished in 2011.
Thanks to everyone - and get nominating!
