Good afternoon!

We will probably have results in a few days. I know you are all anxious to find out who won, but the deliberations were interrupted when a small human fell out of one judge's abdomen. (And here we thought she was just letting herself go!)

Our judges are now reviewing all of the entries, and I will post the results as soon as I get them.

I hope you are all having a lovely holiday season.

Best NWT Blogs: 2008


The 2008 awards are now underway, and we are taking nominations until Christmas Eve. That will give our judges time to review all of the blogs and return with winners next weekend. You can nominate anyone, even yourself.
  • To be eligible, a blog must be about the NWT or written by a person in the NWT.
  • Anyone can nominate a blog for the contest.
  • To be eligible, individual blog entries must have been published in 2008.
Please post your entries in the comment box so we don't end up with multiple nominations for the same blog or post. You can nominate the same blog for as many categories as you want, but if you see that it's already been nominated in a category, there's no need to re-submit it. It would help if you could include links: if you don't know how to do this, you can e-mail your nominations to me (dryas at theedge dot ca) and I will post them.

The blogs you nominate can be any format: photoblogging, liveblogging, videoblogging, columns, personal stories.

To ensure fairness, I have assigned judges to categories they will not be eligible for. Best Blog and Best Post will be judged by a panel of bloggers who live outside the NWT.

Best Blog (Panel: Tina, Jen, Craig, Clare, Jackie, Kara, Kennie)
Best overall.

Best Post
(Panel: Tina, Jen, Craig, Clare, Jackie, Kara, Kennie)
Best individual post of the year.

Best New Blog (Judge:
Best blog that began within the 2008 calendar year.

Best Photography (Judge: Megan)

Best original photography. It doesn't have to be a photoblog; it can be any blog with original photography.

Best Series (Judge:
Best series of posts about a specific topic. This does not have to be a formal series, but the posts should be presented as parts of a single unit on the blog.
