Awards

The polls for the Satin Pajamas will close tomorrow. Vote while you can.

We’re nominated for a Bloggie, but more importantly you can vote for us in the semi-finals of the Koufax awards, in the categories for Best Group Blog, Most deserving of Wider Recognition, and Best Series (for our Ukraine coverage). I will immodestly claim that we deserve to at the least be finalists in each of them.

But even more importantly you should check out all the great nominees, and especially the koufax categories for best post and best humorous posts. The Bloggies have some great ones too, and many of the best are Europeans, like La Coquette, Petite Anglaise and Francis Strand.

And of course all the Satin Pajama finalists are great. Ben Hammersley made the point that our humble little awards had a more impressive roster of blogs than the venerable Bloggies, and I hadn’t thought about it, but I think he’s right.

Awards Season Far From Over

The next round of the Koufax Awards! If you think we deserve it, you can vote for us in the Best Group Category.

The 2005 Bloggies!
You can nominate us for any category you think apply, particulary the one for best European weblog.

Our own blog awards! Do you know what I hereby announce? I hereby announce that the voting phase for the European Weblog Awards will commence on the 27th of January. Keep the nominations coming until then.

2004 Koufax Awards

If you want to, you can take a break from nominating blogs for the European Weblog Awards, and go and nominate A Fistful of Euros for the 2004 Koufax Awards. I think we’re a credible choice for Best Group Blog, Most Deserving of Wider Recognition, Best Writing (Mrs Tilton on her own would qualify us), and Best Series (our Ukraine coverage). We were a finalist for Best Group blog last year.

The Koufax are great, easily the best of the many blog awards, mainly because they’re the best for discovering excellent blogs you never heard of.
