Calling all NWT Bloggers

That’s right I am calling all bloggers, all NWT Bloggers. It is time again for the NWT Blog Awards. Blog awards are put on at the end of every year and just like Canadian Blog Awards (Vote for YkOnline) are judged by readers. The NWT Blog Awards is spearheaded by one of are very one bloggers, who is probably a blog celebrity.

Voting has not started yet, I will let you know when it does. Right now it is in nomination round. Bloggers must nominate themselves. This way if you don’t get nominated it is your own fault. So all NWT bloggers bet get on and nominate. Nominations are own open until Tuesday, December 15, 2009. To nominate yourself go to the nominate page and leave a comment with all the categories you wish to be in. Please make sure to link to the appropriate posts and such.

Categories Include:
  • Best Blog: This is an award for the best blog overall. It includes Flickr streams, podcasting and vodcasting.
  • Best New Blog: Best blog that started in 2009. The blogger does not have to be new to the NWT, and it does not have to be the writer’s first blog.
  • Best Post: The single best post of 2009.
  • Best Series: This can be a number of posts over a long period of time or a time-limited series.
  • Best Blog From A New NWT Resident: Best blog from someone who moved here in 2009. The blog must be mainly about moving to the NWT or about what it is like to be a new resident of the NWT. The blog itself can be more than a year old if the author moved here during 2009 and started to publish material that is mainly about life as a new resident.
  • Best Youth Blog: Best blog written by an NWT resident who is younger than 20.

  • Best Personal Photography: See above, but for amateur photographers.
  • Best Theme Blog: Best blog in which all or almost all posts are about a single topic or use a set format. This includes corporate blogs and blogs about specific places. The theme does not have to have anything to do with the NWT.
