It’s official: the 2012 Clawbies are open for business! From now until Thursday, December 27th, we’re looking for nominations of your favourite Canadian law blogs for the 7th annual Canadian Law Blog Awards (a.k.a. the Clawbies).
We’re following the same nomination process as last year: tweet (using the hashtag #clawbies2012), send me an email, or better yet, write a blog post sharing who you think are the most outstanding Canadian law blogs of 2012. Head on over to Clawbies.ca for more details on these three methods, and to lawblogs.ca to see our list of several hundred candidates!
Joining me on the judges’ panel again this year are Jordan Furlong and Simon Fodden, whose own blogs, of course, won’t be eligible for Clawbies, but are excellent examples of what we’re looking for (Jordan’s Law21 took home honours in 2008, and Simon’s brainchild, Slaw, was permanently retired from the race in 2010 after winning four years in a row).
While everyone anticipates the big reveal of the Clawbies winners on New Year’s Eve, the bottom line is that this process is designed to celebrate and publicize all the bloggers and readers who participate; everyone benefits from our open and social media nominations system. Last year we had 40+ blogged and tweeted nominations – let’s aim for even more this year!
