It’s that time of year again; the halls are being decked, gaudy jumpers are being primed from their annual appearance, and the assorted Failed Critics writers, podcasters, and long-suffering listeners/readers are putting together their end-of-year lists. Ding dong merrily on high!

Please use the form below to submit your choices, and the only rule is…THERE ARE NO RULES!

Wait, we’ve been told that there are apparently a few rules.

  • For a film to be eligible it must have received a public cinematic release (or VOD premiere) in the UK during 2014. Votes for films that have only so far received festival releases may be counted, but are unlikely to claim enough votes to make the final list anyway.
  • Please submit votes for all categories in order.
  • You do not have to submit the full compliment for each category (you may for example only nominate one documentary), and you may ignore any category you wish.
  • Your email will be used purely for administration purposes, and will not be shared or sold with any other party. The email will be deleted once the awards have been announced.
  • Voting closes at 5pm on Monday 22nd December 2014
