Most recent event

The WRIXAS
(also known as The Writers Express Awards) is a bi-annual ceremony held at the end of every February and August. Before 2014, it was held tri-annually.

The purpose of the WRIXAS is to celebrate 'the best of the best' of forum material published in the last four, six or twelve months of an eligibility window.

In order to be eligible, projects must meet certain eligibility criteria, such as having produced a sufficient number of episodes. Since August 2015, forum members must also meet certain eligility criteria in order to qualify. Anyone who has given more than 50% annual feedback is eligible to submit and to vote in the WRIXAS; between 26 and 50% means they can submit but not vote; and 25% or less means they can neither vote nor submit. In 2017, much of the eligibility criteria was dropped. Any forum member may now vote (irregardless of project activity or feedback history), and the only reaming criteria is that projects must be active in order to be eligible, and abandoned projects remain ineligible.

The most recent ceremony was held at 17:55 (BST) on Saturday 2nd September 2017, and ran for 95 minutes as usual. Six members took part in voting this time round., and all six attended the event either intermittently or throughout. This event was the first one since August 2016, by far the longest gap between ceremonies to date, and it was the first ever to be held in a September.

Conception

The Writers Express Awards were first suggested as an idea in December 2011 by an original but now inactive forum member, AM32. AM32 took charge of the first ceremony, but since WRIXAS 2, forum owner Noxy has assembled, organised and posted both the ceremonies and subsequent tweets on Twitter, with peers AppleCobbler and Ross assisting in this process for stints in 2013. In 2012 and 2013, the event was held tri-annually, but since 2014 it was held bi-annually, intended to be each February and August. As of 2017, it is currently held annually.
