The Liberal Democrat Voice Awards are but three days 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.
Our illustrious judging panel has completed its work. Our thanks go to George Eaton, the editor of the Staggers Blog at the New Statesman, Christine Jardine, journalist, commentator and former Liberal Democrat Special Adviser and recent candidate for Aberdeen Donside, Mark Thompson, last year’s winner, Baroness Liz Barker, the Voice’s new Readers’ Editor, Mark Valladares and I.
I can now reveal the final externally judged category, that of Blog of the Year.
David Boyle’s The Real Blog
Jonathan Calder for Liberal England
Zoe O’Connell for Complicity
Mark Pack for Mark Pack
Sam Phripp for So Sam Said
Jennie Rigg for The Stony Croutons do not agree with her
