The 2014 Canadian Weblog Awards Nominations Are Open

Happy New Year!

As we usher in 2014, we also usher in the new season of the Canadian Weblog Awards. It is our fifth season already. Our FIFTH. It feels like our baby is growing up so fast. Sniff.

We have made a few category changes, as we do every year both to reflect our changing times and to better show off our Canadian talents. This year, we have narrowed down the number of categories from 34 to 25. The consolidation and removal of extraneous categories will make for less ambiguity and category crossover, and it will also mean tighter competition. Whee!

Take a look at our new list of blog categories here. And the best part of starting our new 2014 Canadian Weblog Awards season?

Nominations open today.

You can nominate your favourite Canadian weblogs starting right now using our simplified nomination form, and we will keep a running blogroll of nominees and a public Twitter list so that you can keep up with them throughout the year. Also, remember that this is a competition decided by jury with no public vote, so a blog need only be nominated once for an equal chance to place at the end of the year.

Thank you so much to everyone who has seen us through our first four years so that we can open up this exciting fifth season. We are thrilled to be here and cannot wait to showcase all the great Canadian blogging that is going on.

Now, go nominate the best in Canada!
