Avant Garde Bloggies Awards 2009?

Last year Avant Garde Bloggies Awards (2008) was very popular. It had a huge participation; so much that it had to be conducted with the help of a small, dedicated team (whom I can never stop thanking enough):  🙂  The Scrutinizing Committee, the Publicist, the Badge Designer, the Poll Manager and of course the Judges.

This is the list of award categories for which nominations were invited. Before taking the plunge into such a mammoth and busy affair, I would like to know your opinion:

Taking lessons from the last year event, there will be some necessary changes this year. For example, multiple nomination by same person in a category will not be allowed. Voting will be available for lesser duration. Award categories maybe overhauled. And more changes, if required.

Similarly, in case you want to suggest any changes in Avant Garde Bloggies Awards, if conducted this year, let us know in the comments section. Thank you!

P.S: Oh, and here is a promotion video from last year created by Nikhil.

Avant Garde Bloggies Awards – Results Tomorrow

Hi guys,

As scheduled, results for Avant Garde Bloggies Awards will be announced tomorrow on Visceral Observations.

1. For each category, one Winner and Runner-up will be announced.

2. In case there is tie in the poll results, post with highest judges’ scores will be announced winner/runner-up.

3. In case there is tie in both judges’ score and number of votes (as has there been the case), both the posts/blogs/bloggers have been designated as winners/runner-ups.

4. In case of categories where there were only 6 or less nominations, judges’ scores have been added post polls.

Please note that none of award results have been determined by a single individual, not even me.  In each category, there were two impartial judges, with different sensibilities,  to select 6 best posts. After that, polls have been the deciding factor unless there was a tie.

Please consider this as a formal disclaimer for the fact that these results do not represent my personal opinion. My personal opinion, may in fact, differ with the declared mandate as it is always with democratic elections. 🙂

Avant Garde Bloggies Awards – Announcements

avant-garde-badgeBest 6 finalists for Avant Garde Bloggies Awards have been decided in each category. Thanks to wondrous efforts by the judges! 🙂 As each category was judged by two different judges (sometimes one of them being me), panel of 8 judges proved less for 34 categories. I had to look for more judges as my existing panel of judges had enough Avant Garde work on their palette.

I wrote to professionals (writer bloggers and poetry professors), they showed interest but perhaps backed out when they realised it was voluntary work. I lost ample time in the process. I wrote to other blogger friends to judge, some of them responded too late and some of them gave up at eleventh hour due to personal and professional crisis. I understand their circumstances as it could have happened to me. In fact, it has happened to me.
