Open Web Awards – Lets Have Some Action
Nominations are now closed! – To vote for your favourite see here
The Open Web Awards are now open for nominations until the 6th December, and this stage of the proceeding is quite open plan.
The current 30 blogging partners (increasing daily) have been provided with a list of categories to accept nominations for, and it is down to each blog to decide how to proceed with collecting nominations, whether to make individual posts for each category, or to handle things from a single post.
Voting will take place in a much more refined manner.
- Mainstream and Large Scale Networks
- Applications and Widgets
- Social News and Social Bookmarking
- Social Search
- Sports and Fitness
- Photo Sharing
- Video Sharing
- Start Pages
- Places and Events
- Social Shopping
- Niche and Miscellaneous Social Networks
I have already posted about this on my solo blog with an emphasis on blogging tools and widgets, but so far I have had a very lacklustre response.
Emphasis here is going to be placed on other categories, but that doesn’t restrict you nominating in multiple categories and you are allowed to make nominations on multiple blogs taking part, so you make the same nominations here, on my solo blog, and on the other 28 blogs taking part, though some may have less friendly guidelines.
- Has the exponential growth of Sphinn impressed you?
- Are you a Stumbleupon addict?
- Are you Stirring it up on Mixx?
- Are you a devout (or immoral) Digger?
We just can’t stick to social news however, don’t forget how important Facebook, Twitter, Pownce etc are becoming in your daily online lives
How do you fire up your day?
How To Nominate
We are going to make this easy to avoid multiple comments
I am going to allow up to 3 nominations for each category, just add an additional line with a nomination if you want to nominate say more that one widget or niche social network.
Just because someone else has already nominated a site doesn’t mean you shouldn’t also nominate it. If they end up with nominations for 100s of different widgets, I am sure there will have to be some filtering, so your additional votes will be important.
I have made it easy to copy and paste the code.
If you don’t want to nominate a service for a particular category, then just delete the line.
