Liberal Democrat Voice Awards: The Shortlists (1): The Tim Garden Award

The Liberal Democrat Voice Awards are only a week away. At 10 pm on Saturday 14 September, in Castle 2 of the Crowne Plaza, with cash bar on hand, and an imaginative dress code, the best in blogging, campaigning, social media and politics in general will be feted in a ceremony filled with razzmatazz, glitz and glamour.

In years past, all the shortlists have been released at once. That’s because the Divine Ms Duffett is kind to you. I on the other hand, am happy to mess with your heads a bit more. So, in the style of the announcement of the contestants on Strictly Come Dancing, we’ll be doing it a little more gradually.

In the next few days, our Members’ Forum will be e-mailed with the chance to vote for the majority of the awards. They will have first sight of those shortlists and will be able to pick their winner. If you are a party member and you want a piece of his action, sign up here.  If you’re not a party member, but want to join, you can do so here.

So, without further ado, let’s see the first shortlist. It’s for the Tim Garden award, set up in memory of Liberal Democrat peer Tim Garden and it’s for Best use of Social Media by an elected Liberal Democrat.

This year’s shortlist is:

Tom Brake’s infographics and Twitter @thomasbrake

Lynne Featherstone’s Twitter @lfeatherstone

Tim Farron’s Twitter @timfarron

Julian Huppert’s Twitter @julianhuppert

Jo Swinson’s Twitter @joswinson

Further shortlists will be revealed at random over the next few days.

  • Because facebook sucks 😛

    Well, I know how I will be voting on that one. Assuming it’s STV. If it’s FPTP I might have a bit more difficulty…

    We go on the nominations we receive, Richard.

  • Good to see such a good batch of Lib Dem MPs using Twitter (and quite a few others who didn’t make the shortlist too) – especially as now about 1 in 6 voters are active Twitter users in the UK.

    Hope blogs will appear in the list, some of us old Liberals have only just discovered LDV instead of the local Focus ;>)

  • disappointing that Elected Liberal Democrat appears to be needing to be renamed to “Elected to the House of Commons in Westminster” Liberal Democrat. No European, Scottish, Welsh or Council elected Lib Dems any good?

    Prue, Alex, we have to go with the nominations we receive. If we only get them for MPs, what can we do?
