In this first of two jury rounds, 51 jurors have adjudicated 465 weblogs using our 10 criteria to narrow down our search to the top five blogs shortlisted in each of 36 categories.
Our jurors have done an incredible job over the last two weeks reading through hundreds of nominations, weathering my many exclamation marks in emails, and taking a critical eye to some of Canada's best. We are thrilled to finally bring you the 2012 Ninjamatics Canadian Weblog Awards nominees shortlist!
We (the Palinode and Schmutzie) have worked our way through the 885 nominations that were submitted over 2012 for the Ninjamatics' 2012 Canadian Weblog Awards, and we finished just in time to greet the new year and begin the jury process. That's right, there were 885 nominations. Not too shabby, Canada.
