Best Adult Oriented or Baudy Act, which you could change the name around but you get my idea.

How about a worst act award for those acts which aren't very good.

I would suggest an amendment to item 14. Best New Renaissance Festival: (the first year of the faire was 2009)

If you have ever been involved with the start up of a new festival, you know that it takes more than the first year for the faire to find its identity.  Believe me, a festival in its <i>second</i> year is a long, long, way from being an old, established, entity.  I would suggest that a NEW faire is any faire less than 5 years old.  Perhaps you feel differently, and may wish to go as short as three years, but I think you'll agree that one year is just too little time.

What do you say to a faire? "You've been around since 2007, you're ready to compete with MDRF!"

Give new faires a chance to work out a few kinks, develop a word-of-mouth reputation, and get settled in.

I think having a worst act award would be terrible.  This is an awards presentation to the best performances. . .  why slam on someone when they're possibly doing the best they can when performing?  I think a "Renaissance Turkey Awards" should be a totally different listing. . . IMHO.
