As I announced in my previous post, I will be organising the blogging awards. And you guess it right, I am calling it Avant Garde Bloggie awards. Here is how this award will be organised:
Phase 1: Nominations
The filing of nominations start today. The invitations for nominations close on 14 October at 10 pm IST.
Phase 2: Polling
You, my readers, will poll for your favorite post in each category. Polls will be open for a month from October 15 to November 15.
Phase 3: Judgement by a panel of judges
The panel of judges will comprise of bloggers. I will let you know once panel of judges will be decided.
Phase 4: Judgement day
All the blog awards winners will be announced on 11 December, 2008, here at Visceral Observations. Final decision of the awards will be based on collective points gained from public polling and panel of judges.
Please feel free to ask any questions. I want to keep this decision process transparent and smooth. You question may also point out a fact/situation I may have overlooked.
I can not certainly organise this awards night single-handedly. I need some volunteers for promotion, communication and execution. Those who are interested and would have some time on hands, please write in the comments section. I will be very grateful to have your helping hand.
Watch out! I will soon be inviting nominations for avant garde award categories.
P.S: I have changed the theme and header of my blog. The header has been designed by my colleague Sunil. He would be anxious to have your feedback.
