Ouddict members will have the chance to shortlist an Oud oil from vendors that has been on sale at any time in 2018. The format is as follows: 1. There will be two categories. Wild and Organic. An Oud of the Year will be voted separately for each category in parallel. 2. The search for the Oud of the Year start with a nomination by members, a 1st Round poll and Final Round poll. 3. A member may only vote if they have bought the Oud or sampled it. We will be making checks to enforce this. 4. A maximum of up to 5 Ouds for each category can be nominated for inclusion by members for inclusion in the first round poll. You do not have to nominate 5 Oud oils per category, but you cannot nominate more than 5 per category. This is to keep the exercise manageable and prevent “spamming”. 5. The 1st Round Poll will be created from the nominated list of Ouds and members can vote on the 1st Round for 5 days. 6. A Final Round will be created from the 1st Round results and a vote held for 3 days. 7. The Oud of the Year will be announced on Sunday 21st January, 2019. 8. Any member who does not follow these rules will be barred from any further involvement in the Oud of the Year 2018 vote. No exceptions. No excuses. Note for Vendors and Vendor Associates 1. You can take part in the Oud of the Year 2. You cannot nominate your own products. 3. You can vote for your own products if nominated.
