While I do think that there are alot of great artists in the AP that deserves an award, I think choosing Hania makes perfect sense in many ways:
- She made the soundtrack to one of the biggest movies of 09, a movie that also won the award of best movie.
- She've released an album, yet she keeps submitting to NG.
- She's an amazing singer and audio artist!
Basically, I think that her getting the award sends out an IN YOUR FACE message that alot of people seem to miss: - This is first and foremost a site for movies/games, and collaborating artists of different areas of expertise may very well give users a bigger chanse of winning something. This should be a carrot for EVERYONE to start COLLABORATING more, and for the audio artists it might be interpret as a HINT that if you're contributing to alot of flashes actually making custom soundtracks/SFX, you might stand a better chanse in the tank awards.
As for the drama, it seem to more or less have settled, but it kindof brings up a valid point - alot of people in the audio-community somehow have managed to completley miss out on the points I described above, especially the COLLAB part.
This is something the ones who wishes to contribute to the forum in other ways could try to think of when organizing collabs, contests etc.
