Annals of Unusual Awards

I'm sure the people who created this award mean well, but why insist on the nominees being already dead at the time of nomination? [link via DrugMonkey].

Who does SfN contact when a decision has been made?

SfN will contact nominators to notify them that a decision has been made. SfN will only contact nominees if they have been selected to receive an award.
