It might be worth finding out if a PDF constitutes a "copy". I know for a fact that it does for some of the awards.

I thought you had to be a member of GAMA to enter?

You don't have to be a member of GAMA, I have no PDF version of Polaris for sale, and do note that my posting of the Origins awards information in no way constitutes an endorsement of the awards.
