Singapore Blog Awards 2008 – registration/nomination now open

On 2 May 2008, omy.sg launched the first bilingual Blog Awards (aptly named the Singapore Blog Awards) to honour outstanding blogs . This award seeks to honour tireless “new age wordsmiths” who devote much time and energy in maintaining informative, regularly updated and innovative blogs, often out of interest rather than for personal gains.

There are a total of seven categories in the inaugural Singapore Blog Awards – Most Insightful Blog, Most Entertaining Blog, Best Individual Blog, Best Blog Shop, Best Blog Design, Best Youth Blog and Best Photo Blog.

Nominations and registrations for the Singapore Blog Awards are now open till 1 June 2008. Interested members of the public can log on to the official site, http://sgblogawards.omy.sg to nominate their favourite blogs. Bloggers can even nominate themselves for the award.

Winners of each of the seven categories will walk away with a custom-designed trophy by famous multi-disciplinary artist, Mr. Tan Swie Hian and a laptop.

Thus far, the response has been encouraging. :)

Here’s a list of some of the better known bloggers who have registered so far:

These individuals have taken the plunge. If you are a blogger, shouldn’t you register now too? Even if you are not a blogger – if you know of deserving bloggers who should be in the run for the awards, do nominate them now (I had fun nominating blogs I read).

The interesting thing about the Internet is that it allows the little guy to take on Goliath – and still stand a fighting chance. In the end, perhaps a current unknown gem will be the blog which shines through instead of the bigger names… and that blogger just may be YOU. :)

  1. Alvin, were you the one who wrote the same post in Omy? I think you are too kind. I am certainly not ‘better known’ to be honest, but I am still honored to be in the list.
