THE LARPY Awards

The Live Adventures Company invites you to join some of the biggest stars in film and television (and thousands of fans who worship them), as they honor the best Live Action Role Playing (LARP) participants in the world, at the 2nd ANNUAL LARPY AWARDS in Hollywood California in April/May of 2011.

The LARPY AWARDS honor the world’s best in the Live Role Players Industry.

The show is a celebration of the Sci-Fi and fantasy films, TV series, videogames, card games and books that inspire all of us to make the world a better place through the power of creativity and imagination.

 

LARP events last from a few hours to whole weekends and take place at game conventions or campground-like facilities depending upon the type of event being produced. The facility or campground is decorated like movie sets to resemble a medieval city or other fantasy world. Writers act as the “Game Masters” who’ve created storylines with mysteries to be solved and tasks to be completed. They provide the direction for “Event Actors” who interact with the participants, guiding them through the storyline and giving them hints and clues to the mysteries. The participants interact with each other, put the clues together, and solve the mystery.

Hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of participants come dressed in their best costumes, with their best props, to act in a what is essentially a “real-life” videogame, TV show or movie. Most LARP organizations, Sci Fi, Anime and Costume Play (Cosplay) conventions have an internal award program that recognizes the “best-of” among the event attendees.

The LARPIES present awards to recognize the “best-of” in the Live Adventure Role Play and Costume communities. We are proud to announce the revision of the categories based upon advice received from interested parties.

Please review the new categories and create a submission that they can be proud of, and without being rushed.

 

We will stop accepting entries in January 20, 2011.

 

At the award show in April of 2011 we are expecting between 760 and 1170 attendees, which is 2 or 3 times the 380 attendees in year 2006..

Most attendees will come dressed in their finest Live Game costumes. There will be a red carpet greeting ceremony for the invited celebrity guests, the LARP Judges, and the LARPY Nominees and a full blown Awards Ceremony thereafter.

ZOLAR X:
Extraterrestrial rockers ZOLAR X first landed on Earth during the height of the glam era and would frequently share the same stage with such bands as IGGY POP and THE NEW YORK DOLLS until the onslaught of the disco era forced the band to return to their home world. But now that the legendary ZOLAR X farewell album “Timeless” has been re-mixed by longtime fan JELLO BIAFRA of the DEAD KENNEDYS and released on ALTERNATIVE TENTACLES RECORDS, the boys are back on Earth with their silver platform space boots all shined up and their antennae back at full attention and broadcasting at full power.  They are also the subject of a soon-to-be-released feature documentary entitled TIMELESS.
