2019 Black Mark Awards Voting

About a month late, but #SureWhyNot

The Black Marks are Noir. and Declarations of War’s year-end awards program. While purely for shits n giggles, it’s our way of celebrating and recognizing the most awesome people and things in EVE that made our year memorable.

After Noir.’s disbanding +2 years ago, this annual event went into hibernation. But like Noir. itself we’re back and looking to be bigger and better than ever! To that effect, instead of nominations by the cast and voting done by guests, Noir. members, and Noir. alumni this year we’re switching things up. All the nominations were done by those folks and for the first time ever the winners will be chosen by our fans and the EVE community.

VOTE HERE

Winners will be announced on one of our next shows!
