2006 Bernies Nominations

2006 Australian Blog Awards – Nominations

Apathy – Mon, 2005 – 12 – 05 21:28

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. It is our pleasure and honor to announce that Collective Apathy will be hosting the 2006 Australian Blog Awards. Yes… you heard it right.

CA might be hosting it, but Vlado is still running the show.

Due to circumstances beyond his control, Vlado has asked us here at Collective Apathy if we’d host this years awards… and of course we said “HELL YEAH!!!”

Anyway… Vlado will be keeping a close watch on everything… actually, he’ll be doing all the work again… we’re just letting him use our bandwidth. Nice of us, hey! The way we see it… we’re not getting anywhere near our bandwidth limits since the link to us dropped off the front page of Metafilter, and we’ve been a bit light on content lately, and it was Vlado that posted that link to us on MeFi… so, what the heck… let’s do it… especially if he’s doing all the work.

Better stop rambling and post this stuff sent to us.


The categories this year are:

  • Best Overall Australian Blog
  • Best Post on an Australian Blog

Location Categories

For a blog to be eligable for one of the location based awards, the blog’s main contributor(s) must reside in that state, territory or be overseas. A blog cannot be nominated for more than one of these blogs. Blogs with contributions coming equaly from more than one location will have to nominate which category they wish to contest.

  • Best NSW Blog
  • Best Victorian Blog
  • Best Tasmanian Blog
  • Best Queensland Blog
  • Best West Australian Blog
  • Best South Australian Blog
  • Best Northern Territory Blog
  • Best Australian Capital Territory Blog
  • Best Overseas Australian Blog

Style Categories

  • Best Humourous Australian Blog
  • Best Designed Australian Blog
  • Best Australian Personal Blog
  • Best Australian Political Blog
  • Best Australian Photo Blog
  • Best Australian Tech Blog
  • Best New Australian Blog
  • Best Australian Collaborative Blog
  • Best Australian Podcast or Video Blog
  • Best Australian Mainstream Media Blog

Nominations can be made by leaving a comment on this post, and they will accepted until the first week of January 2006 (exact date to be announced). Once the nominations have been compiled they’ll be announced, the voting phase will begin and votes will be accepted up until ABOUT the 25th of January 2006. Once again, the announced of the winners will be SCHEDULED to coincide with Australia Day i.e. 26th of January. However, ALL dates quoted are subject to change depending on work load… so don’t be surprised if there’s slippage in the schedule.

The voting system will once again be the much loved optional preferential voting system… but before you take the easy way out and take advantage of the “optional” aspect of the system, please keep in mind that preferences were vital in several categories last time.

Finally, I ask that when you’re making your nominations

  1. you provide the sites name
  2. you provide the sites address
  3. you limit your nominations to ONE per category (that way each nominations should get at least one vote)

As I don’t want to have to try to decipher the nominations.

Okay. Time to get nominating… and spread the word about the 2006 Australian Blog Awards, and spread it early.

UPDATE: Another new category has been added… Best Australain Mainstream Media Blog – for those blogs run by the large newspaper, television etc companies… not that they need the extra exposure πŸ™‚

    Farce

    TSP1.0's picture

    a) Why would anyone nominate themselves for an award?

    b) Why do all the nominations for Kitta.net come in exactly the same format every time?

    c) Can people stop nominating things that have already been put up 25 times? We know you all love Samuel, but so has every 2nd other person so far.

    Would it be bad form to suggest that these things have as little credability as any of the other blogging “awards” going around? For that reason can be spared the wanky feuds and bitterness that always erupt over these things. It’s the online equivalent of the People’s Choice Awards so let’s not take them too seriously ok?

    TSP1.0 – Tue, 2005 – 12 – 20 08:30

    Re: Farce

    flextime's picture

    a) probably because they want to boost their readership, and see what the blogsphere thinks of their site

    b) Odd I agree. Either her readers are very keen cut and pasters or they have been put up to it.

    c) I kind of agree, but don’t really care much either. It would be more interesting to see a diversity of nominations, rather than just the usual suspects. It would be nice to discover some new blogs too.

    I don’t think people take this seriously, I’m sure I don’t.

    * Best Australian Mainstream Media Blog
    Don’t read any of them.

    My blog, AnonymousLefty, has been nominated in a few categories. If it’s going in there, please put it in the following categories: Victorian, humorous, personal, political, and (optimistically) (well, even more optimistically) overall.

    I also think we need more categories. “Best cultural blog”, “Most amusingly foul-mouthed blog”, “Best travel blog written by my best friend”, “Best Blog sticking it up a right-wing newspaper columnist” etc.

    ps we appear to be quite lefty-central here. I’ll nominate A Western Heart and Tim Blair’s Site of Villainy for political blog, just so there’s some actual competition.

    ps sorry to everyone else on my blogroll – I couldn’t fit everyone whose blog I like on (although I made a start).

    blogs we may not have mentioned but I'm not sure

    barista's picture

    Who’se not included yet? Triffic list of people I haven’t seen before.

    John Quiggin at http://johnquiggin.com/ for best Australian political blog, and best Queensland blog.

    Invisible Shoebox at http://invisibleshoebox.blogspot.com/ for best designed.

    Jozef Imrich at http://amediadragon.blogspot.com/ for Best Australian Personal Blog.

    Antony Looowenstein at http://www.antonyloewenstein.blogspot.com/ for best mainstream media since this is an offshoot of his journalism work.

    Road to Surfdom at http://www.roadtosurfdom.com/ for Best Political

    Southerly Buster at http://www.southerlybuster.blogspot.com/ – don’t ever underestimate this quiet achiever. What category, there’s the rub.. Best NSW?

    Tim Lambert at http://cgi.cse.unsw.edu.au/~lambert/cgi-bin/blog/. Best genius fighter in the country, but how does he fit? Best oz Political..

    Personal Political at http://susoz.typepad.com/personal_political/ for Best Personal

    The governor general at http://governor_general.blogspot.com/, for Best Humorous

    Down and Out in Saigon at http://tphcm.blogspot.com/ for Best Australian Overseas (though I do love the cat too..)

    She sells sanctuary at http://she-sells-sanctuary.blogspot.com/ which I am sneaking in as another for Best Personal. Now I am setting wise, wise women up against each other. Sniff!

    Karma to Burn at http://ivegotkarmatoburn.blogspot.com/ for Best Victorian.

    Teejmahal at http://www.teejmahal.com/ for Best Victorian. I must be living in two parallel universes at once.

    Spiceblog at http://spiceblog.blogspot.com/ for best WA blog. After all, Robert has gone.

    I think we need a couple of extra categories. Since these things are really and truly worth doing well but are Not. Serious., we can have lots of categories. Best Australian link collector is one. Best Australian Battle Blog is another. And, as has been hinted above, Best Australian Special Interest..
