THE BLACK WEBLOG AWARDS LOGO CONTEST ENDS
Due to the low number of entries for the contest, the rules have changed.
As of June 1, 11:59pm, the Black Weblog Awards Logo Contest will be over, and a thread will be put up so the group can vote on this year's logo based on the ones located in the "Files" section of the group. So far, we have two entries by Zilla and two entries by Andre -- if you want your logo included in the running, hurry up and submit! Go to the "BWA 2007 Logo Design Contest" for information on submission.
On June 2, a new thread will be opened for people to vote, and the thread will stay open until June 5. The winning logo will be picked, and will be used for this year's Awards.
This month, the new categories will be picked for this year's Awards. A few days ago, I threw out the idea about just including ALL the new category suggestions, contingent upon whether or not dual winners (judges vote and public vote) will be awarded, or if both judges and the public vote will be weighted and averaged to determine the winner. Go to the "New Category Suggestions" thread if you have a suggestion for new categories. Once I come to a decision (or I hear some input from the group on the suggestions), the thread will be closed (June 15 at the latest); this will also give me time to work on the voting system.
THE JUDGES, THE JUDGES
This is basically a reiteration of what's included in the "2007 BWA
Judging Criteria" thread. The two main questions I want group input on are 1) what do you think the weighting percentages should be for the judging and 2) should we do dual winners (judges and public) or one winner where the judges and public vote are weighted and averaged?
I'm also going to be looking for a cross-section of judges -- bloggers, non-bloggers, etc. -- for this month's Awards. I haven't
hashed out those criteria yet, but they should be knowledgeable about blogs, websites, the Internet and web design in order to be good judges. Again, I'm still working on it.
