A well deserved congratulations to the winners – and my huge thanks to everyone who took the time to nominate and vote, and to everyone producing all the fantastic blogs, podcasts, videos, wikis, images and everything else out there – it’s great to be a part of such a creative and innovative community!

Next year I’d like to have category leaders manage each category – if you’re interested please drop me a line. It’s just too big an administrative task for one person – especially at this time of year!

Head over to the Awards site to see all the finalists.

  1. Hi Josie
    congrats again, may this and every season be as festive and prosperous as you can handle 🙂
    I’m just reiterating my offer to initiate and lead a new category ‘class blogs’ as in our comments in
    I will be trying my best to connect classes that blog at Locally – South Australia and Globally – The World 🙂 If anyone wants to add a good resource, thank you and feel free at
    Early days but hopefully it will grow and prove to be a worthwhile pursuit. Cheers, Al
