2010 SEMMY Nominations Announced (and they include me!)

Filed in SEMMY Awards by Matt McGee on January 13, 2010 2 Comments

Big sigh of relief and deep breath over here at McGee HQ. The 2010 SEMMY Award nominees have just been posted in 17 categories. You can see all the categories and nominees at www.semmys.org. That means my life returns to normal … until next week when it all starts up again.

The judges will now spend a week reviewing the nominees and putting together a list of finalists for each category. I’ll post the finalists next Wednesday, and that’s when public voting begins. There will be separate voting forms for each category, and the public will decide the 17 winners. The winners will be announced on February 1st on the SEMMYS web site.

If you’re a nominee, feel free to grab a nominee badge and let your readers know. (When you put a lot of time and energy into something, as I do with these awards, it’s really awesome to see nominees get genuinely excited. Posts like this one from Sebastian Provencher put a big smile on my face. Thanks Sebastian – best of luck with the next step!)

I’m very excited that the nominating committee honored three of my posts from this blog with nominations:

Thanks to the folks on the committee who included those. And I should mention that my guest post last year on Small Business Trends, If I Were Launching a New Small Biz Web Site Today, was nominated, too. Along with two posts from HyperlocalBlogger.com.

Congrats to ALL the nominees, and good luck next week in reaching the finals.

    Let me congratulate you on a brilliant idea – I’m impressed on so many levels by the SEMMYS! It’s a very clever concept, super creative naming, a treasure trove of useful, educational articles, an extremely valuable industry resource, and a masterful example of brand marketing. Bravo, truly!

      Wow, Cindy – thanks so much for the kind words. I always appreciate hearing this, but I have to say that it’s a real group effort. David, the nominating committee, the judges — everyone makes it work. Couldn’t do it alone, that’s for sure.
