2010 South Africa Blog Awards

The SA Blog Awards for 2010 nomination phase is open. It’s that time of year again when the bloggers of South Africa ask their readers to vote for their blogs.

2010 sees a new CEO with Cape Town Businessman and radio personality JP Naude at the helm. Naude says “The blogosphere in South Africa has grown tremendously with our statistics showing more that 9500 registered bloggers currently ranked with Afrigator, our official blog statistics measuring company”.

The 2010 SA Blog Awards supported by News24 this year has 25 categories including the overall SA Blogger of the year category. The awards are structured in 3 phases, with the nomination phase which is currently underway closing on 27 August. During this phase the bloggers and the public nominate their favourite blogs into the various categories. The 1st of September sees the start of the public voting phase and will run until 17 September. During this phase the top ten nominees in each category are voted for by the public. These votes together with the votes of the category judges will determine the winners in each category. The final phase is for the judges to choose their overall winner from the winners of each category. These winners will be honoured in Cape Town on the 25th of September.
