OAIS Blogging Awards Voting Begins

January 17, 2014

We’re a week behind, but the nominees are in and voting is now open. We sent out ballots today to those who registered for voting. If you did not receive one or if you haven’t registered yet, please email us for a ballot. Voting runs through February 7.

As with last year, we will use a Borda-count process to create a list of finalists and then proceed to a second round in which a panel of judges (last year’s winners and Duck permanent contributors) will determine the winners in each category.

We ask voters to choose three (3) finalists for the Best Blog category, six (6) for the Best Individual Blog category, (2) for the Most Promising New Blog, and five (5) for Best Post.

Here are the final nominees by category:

Best Blog (Individual)

Best Blog (Group)

Best Blog Post

Most Promising New Blog
