Ultiworld’s 2022 Club Awards are presented by Breakmark; all opinions are those of the author. They have given away almost 1000 reversibles this year and want to get to 2500 and beyond. Find out how you can help and get yours at Breakmark.com!

Our official 2022 Club Awards have all been announced — though stay tuned for more unofficial awards talk with our annual superlatives and snubs articles! — but we wanted to pull the curtain back a little bit to give our subscribers a look at how all votes shook out for each award.

Each year, we invite all division reporters, staff writers, and editors to submit a ballot for each gender division.

This year, for each of the individual awards we asked our contributors to submit a podium of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, with an option to include 4th and 5th place finishers as a tiebreaker. When our totals are tallied, players get three points for a 1st place vote, two for a 2nd place vote, and one point for a 3rd place vote. Unlike in past years where our entire POTY podium was ineligible to win other individual awards, this year only the POTY winner was ineligible. In the event of any ties, we recalculated taking into account any 4th and 5th place votes; the second tiebreaker was the number of ballots a player appeared on.

For our All-Club teams, each contributor submits a ranked list of their top 21 players — submitting three full lines help better differentiate at the margins — with a 1st place vote earning 21 points and descending from there. In the event of any ties, the first tiebreaker is the number of ballots a player appeared on and the second tiebreaker is who received the highest vote (ie, most 1st place votes).

Below are the full vote tallies of our 2022 Club Awards.
