Black Weblog Awards Mentioned on NPR

Great news! I just got word that the Black Weblog Awards were mentioned on the Friday broadcast of NPR's "News and Notes" with host Farai Chideya!

For those who may not have heard of the program, "News and Notes" is an NPR broadcast hour-long radio program which features everyone and everything from newsmakers to performers, health to finance, all from an African-American perspective.

The Black Weblog Awards was mentioned in the segment "Every Blogger is a Star at the Webby's" with new media commentators Mario Armstrong and Gary Dauphin. You can click on the aforementioned link to listen to the segment online.

June 2007 Update

NOTE: More information about these topics is in the Black Weblog Awards Google Group. You have joined, haven't you?

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.

NEW CATEGORIES!



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.

Update on BWA 2007 Logo Design Contest

Real talk: To date, we haven't gotten a single contest entry. The contest still ends on May 15, but unless we get some entries coming in, we'll have to end it and come up with a design to show on the site by June 20.

If you have something you want to submit, check the entry on the Black Weblog Awards group titled BWA 2007 Logo Design Contest for more information.

BWA 2007 Logo Design Contest

Right now, we're looking for a new logo design for this year's Awards. This design will be the official logo of the Awards; we can't, unfortunately, use the design from last year's Awards, and we want to keep a different visual appearance for the Awards each year. There's not really have a specific "look" that we're going for (the last two years sort of revolved around a 70's type theme), so any suggestions are more than welcome.

If you would like to submit a design for consideration, here are the guidelines:

  • 300 dpi resolution

  • Vector art only (Adobe Illustrator .AI or .EPS or Macromedia Freehand .EPS)

  • File size < 3MB (contact me if you have a larger size)


Also, here's how the design will be used:

  • Website design will be built around the logo

  • Logo will be used in any advertising campaigns (print or online)

  • Future merchandising opportunities


Of course, the designer will be fully credited anywhere the logo is used.

If you know any graphic designers out there who would like to contribute their talents towards the Awards, please refer them here. The logo contest will officially begin on March 15, 2007 and will end on May 15, 2007. The designs will be posted in the group and on the BlackWeblogAwards.com website where people can comment on which designs they like the most; this will go on from May 20, 2007 - June 15, 2007. On June 20, 2007, the top logo design will be announced.

We're looking forward to seeing the submissions!

New Black Weblog Awards Google Group

Happy new year! Behind the scenes, we've been a bit lax with getting forward on this year's awards. With the 2007 BWAs a little less than six months away, we've been herding together a couple of different ideas, but really, the awards are about YOU...so tell us what you want. We're open to any and all suggestions for new categories, categories to nix for this year, prizes...you name it. And in order for us to really really do this, we've started up a Black Weblog Awards Google Group. Feel free to join and post your ideas so you can have a direct dialogue with the folks behind the BWAs and really get your input heard (instead of us having to find it through Technorati). Just sign up below. Thanks!
