Please submit your nominations on the forum or email them directly to me. If you want your nomination accepted you must submit more than just a name. If you are nominating a car then some pictures and a detailed description is required. I must have enough information about a nomination to develop a write-up to submit the board of directors so that they can determine if they want to sponsor the nomination.
