Meet the Ninjamatics' 2011 Canadian Weblog Awards Jury

The Ninjamatics' Canadian Weblog Awards are a juried awards, which means that all of the nominated weblogs are judged by a jury using our ten criteria for design and content.

We put a call out for volunteer jurors in the fall, and 46 people came forward to be on the jury this year. Our jurors worked hard throughout the month of January over two rounds of judging to unearth the best of Canadian blogs from our list of 461 nominees. I have said this before, but it's true: without our jurors, these awards could not exist as a celebration of quality blogging in Canada.

As a thank you to them, we have rounded up a number of their bios so that you can meet the real engine behind the Awards:
