The annual awards
Awful shots have been winning awards since 2007. To see the awards for a given year, and download the replays to see the shots themselves, click on the year below.
Below is a list of worthy shots that nonetheless didn't quite make it into the awards lists, either because they were submitted too late or were played offline. But they're still worth seeing, so download them anyway!

FlyingFlapjack, for somehow heading his own petrol bomb;
leroy, for the most incompetent use of a shotgun of all time;
Medal, for nearly drowning and then drowning anyway;
ramb0, for tempting fate with a homing missile;
Silaneo, for trying to get rid of a cow;

Replays that need an older version of Rubberworm to playback, or that I otherwice can't play for some reason:
For completeness, shots that didn't make the cut for any of the awards pages are still available from the directories below. Nominations are excluded if they don't meet the qualifying criteria or if they're just not exceptional.
