Since it's Pride Month, we thought we'd show some pride in our contributors. While I seem to get the lion's share of publicity for the site's success, it's the contributors who do the real work.
In that spirit, I'm proud to announce the very first Bilerico Golden Projectors Awards. There will be a few categories for awards, and your nominations and votes will determine the winners.
The categories are:
- Best Contributor
- Best Blog Post
- Best Guest Post
- Best Middle Column Post (Abigail's Diary, Ask Michele, Fiercely Fannie, Town Called Dobson, What the Buck?!)
- Best You Gotta See This Video
- Best Commenter
See after the jump for details.
Here's the rules:
The Editorial Team is not eligible to win a Best Contributor prize. That means Jerame Davis, Alex Blaze, Waymon Hudson, Michael Crawford, Serena Freewomyn, Marti Abernathey and myself are not eligible for this category. Alumni contributors are eligible to win.
Abigail's Teen Diary videos, Ask Michele columns, Fiercely Fannie columns, Town Called Dobson cartoons, and What the Buck videos are not eligible for Best Blog Post. They are the only posts eligible for Best Middle Column Post.
You can post your nominations in the comments section. You can nominate any post or contributor appropriate for the category. The top three contributors/posts that are nominated the most often will be joined by two selections from the Ed Team. The nominations will be open until midnight EST on Sunday, June 8.
Contributors can make nominations too.
Starting next week, we'll be voting on the five nominees for awards. The top vote getter will win. Voting will be spread out over the rest of the month - two categories per week.
