2009 Okie Blog Awards

Nominations are now being taken for the 2009 Okie Blog Awards.

From the official blog:
The purpose of the Okie Blog Awards is to recognize the outstanding talent, creativity and hard work of Oklahoma bloggers, and to encourage excellence in blogging.

The program was founded five years ago and was originally based on peer-selection. Peer selection will continue as the core of the nominating process; however, final determination and selection of top winners in each category will be made by a panel of experts, all of whom are from Oklahoma.
Here is a link to the official rules, and here is a list of the categories open for nomination. You can only nominate if you are an active Okie blogger, and by email (2009okieblogawards@gmail.com). The top ten nominees in each category will be announced between February 3rd (when nominations end) and February 5th (when voting begins). Voting closes on February 12th, a board of panelists will be announced on the 13th, and the winners will be unveiled by the panel no later than February 19th.

The categories for nomination are as follows:
  • Best Arts/Crafts Blog
