[size=150][color=#265780]What is this?[/color][/size]

With the most active regional message board (RMB) in NationStates and an endless stream of new dispatches, The North Pacific is filled with exquisite publications, be it witty RMB exchanges or long dispatch-based contemplations. [b]The North Pacific Literary Awards[/b] serve to highlight these outstanding contributions through seven unique monthly awards. 

We hope that these awards will foster continued excellence in RMB and dispatch contributions through the introduction of friendly regional competition and global recognition. 

If you are interested in the full RMB posting and dispatch statistics, make sure to check out the dedicated section on [url=#STATISTICS]statistics[/url] below.

For any questions, please contact the [url=/page=dispatch/id=485394]Gameside Advocates[/url].
