Last year I thought it might be fun to recognize some of these great men and women that spend countless hours each week updating the world with the goings on in and around our favourite football club, and so kicked off what I called the “NCFC on the Web” awards.
It was more successful than I thought it would be (click here to see how the 2008 awards were won), so thought it only right to get the 2009 edition off and running.
As with last year there are seven categories that sites can be nominated for:
Best news service. Which site has the best news?
Best site for analysis. Including rumours etc.
Best match previews/reports. Most websites feature some sort of match report, but that doesn’t mean it’s any good.
Best column. “Nelson’s” does not count. I’m thinking things like “The Man” on the Pink’un site, that sort of thing.
Overall best NCFC website. Fairly self-explanatory. Which NCFC website do you think is your favourite overall?
Best site design. Who’s the prettiest? The easiest to use?
Best message board. There’s plenty of them, but which one is the best?
As some will be aware, my main contribution is as editor of the Vital Norwich site, but although some could call it a conflict of interests that site isn’t excluded – I didn’t cheat last year, so I have absolutely no intention of doing so this year!
Any NCFC site can be nominated – be it a professional setup like the official site, all the way down to the one-man-band cowboy blog. If you like it, nominate it.
That’s pretty much it. You can send your nominations to the usual email address (canaryblog at googlemail dot com), or leave a comment below.
I’ll add them to the list I’ve already got, whittle them down to no more than half a dozen or so per category and will announce the full list of nominees later on this week – and then voting can begin.
