The official 2008 AXIS Award site is now live. Following the doctrine of change set out by Toby Talbot (Convenor of Judges), the site allows you to vote for the award night’s host, caterer, venue and after-party location. You can even vote on the local judging line-up and upload your own host and venue suggestions! A collection of nominee videos have also been prepared so you’re not voting blindly.
This is a bold and unprecedented method of creating an awards night, and one that Talbot believes will work: “When you look at the options we’re offering, especially for something as important as the choice of host, I know we’re onto something pretty bloody special”.

    This would be a much better idea if it was real, rather than a piss take.

    Too hard though eh? And not funny. Clever though...

    Hi CAANZ,

    If it's my Axis, I'd like you to delete the objectionable videos from 'my' site. It will give me a bad name. Thanks

    You're an utter twat.

    It's been years since someone's had the balls to shake up AXIS. Toby's made changes based on hearing feedback from the industry. The site is a bit of a piss-take on that.

    But of course you're going to be bitter if you've got nothing to enter. Peanut.
