  • Who decides the award winners?

    You do. The Gundies is voter choice, simply put, at the end of voting, whichever content creator has the most votes in their category wins!


  • Can I nominate someone?

    Yes! You can suggest on who you think deserves to be nominated HERE.

    *Note* Nominating an influencer is not a guarantee that they will be in the final voting, all contenders must meet our guidelines to be included in the voting.

  • What makes a content creator eligible to be nominated in a category?

    We look for a few things when deciding if a content creator should be nominated in a category.

    1. Do they fit a category? This is rather self-explanatory, we are looking for content creators that fit within one of our 15 categories. Now, we're well aware that there are some incredible creators who don't necessarily fit in one of these categories. As the Gundies grow we hope to add more categories in the future to include these creators.

    2. Following/Audience Size: We want to spotlight creators of all sizes but we do have a minimum requirement to be listed in the voting.

    3. Views: Audience also leads us to consider view counts, while a creator might have more subscribers than another, The amount of view's on recent content is also considered in our decision.

    4. Commitment to their Craft: The Gundies is about celebrating creators who are committed to consistently putting out quality content. This can take many shapes but ultimately they need to be an active member of the firearms & outdoors community.

    5. Nominations: The final consideration we make is the number of times a creator was nominated during our nomination period between November 1st & November 31st. The number of nomination submissions a creator receives from different people is a big consideration as it helps us see how active and loyal a creator's audience & community is.
