Its Nomination and Election Fever – not just for the General Elections but also for Singapore’s top blogs of the year. Let’s get those flabby content generating muscles all warmed up for the Singapore Blog Awards 2011.
Organised by omy.sg, the Singapore Blog Awards “honours creative, hardworking and persistent “new age wordsmiths” who devote their time and energy to create and maintain informative and innovative blogs.”
This year, a total of 10 updated categories are up for grabs. They include “Best Family Blog”, “Best Fashion Blog”, “Best Travel Blog” and “Best Social Media Integrated Blog” (which considers other social networking elements like Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare).
That’s not all…
Two additional celebrity categories determined entirely by your votes are also created. They are the “HTC Most Popular Local Celebrity Blog/Microblog” and the “HTC Most Popular Overseas Celebrity Blog/Microblog”. No prizes for guessing what you can possibly win there (hint: look at the category names).
Wait, there’s more…
There are four more sponsored categories which you can participate in, namely “HTC Best Mobile Blog”, “Deal.com.sg Best Shopping Blog”, “Asus Best Tech Blog” and “Adonis Best Beauty Blog”.
With so many categories to participate in, the chances of winning something must be good. In fact, $30,000 worth of fabulous prizes are up for grabs, and they apply to both nominees and voters! They include a trip to Melbourne, Australia, inclusive of air tickets and accommodation!
Nomination and registration is now open till 22 May, followed by a voting and judging phase till end June. The winners will be crowned at an award ceremony held at the chic Shanghai Dolly in July.
