Best New Blog:
This is our rookie of the year award. You’re in the running if your blog got started after August 1, 2010. It’s that simple.
Best Writing on a Blog:
This category recognises some of the excellent writing people round here are publishing on their blogs. But your blog doesn’t have to be a ‘writer’s blog’ in order to qualify. It could be about anything; it’s the quality of the prose we’re interested in, not the subject matter.
Best Arts and Culture Blog:
A blog that covers some aspect of cultural life or leisure in Manchester. So yes, that means art and music, but also food or sport.
Best Personal Blog:
If your blog is like your online journal, this is where you fit in.
Best City and Neighborhood Blog:
You’re a contender if you focus your bloggage on a particular locale, which could be a neighbourhood (i.e. Gorton), a wider area (South Manchester) or even the whole city of Manchester.
Blog of the Year:
This category is a best-of-the-best, and is only open to winners of the above categories – you cannot nominate a blog in this category.
