Imagine if you were sent to a deserted island where there is no means whatsoever of getting an Internet connection for a week. No Facebook, no Twitter, no blogs, no email, not even Google to help you find out “what to do on a deserted island”. We’re not sure about you, but we know that we wouldn’t be able to survive, because even one day without the Internet would send us screaming in hysterics all over said deserted island.
DiGi knows how much the Internet has shaped our lives and is celebrating it by holding an award ceremony honouring the best of the Internet with the DiGi Wwwow Awards! And as the leading blog community around here (ahem :P), we at Nuffnang are proudly throwing our support behind the Wwwow Awards as one of the partners!
DiGi Wwwow Awards is an Internet for All Awards by the people, for the people that will be highlighting 16 categories altogether to suit the different likes of online individuals out there. This means that you have the power to nominate and vote for whoever you think should win a particular award; you can even nominate yourself too, if you think your blog is absolutely awesome and deserves some recognition! :D
Don’t wait any longer and start submitting your entries, because winners of each category will not only be the first ever to walk away with the sought after titles, they will also be getting awesome prizes worth up to RM5000 from DiGi and its partners ASTRO, Google Malaysia, Yahoo! Malaysia, Malaysia Airlines, Nuffnang, Catcha (Low Yat & MSN),, and Flickr (Yahoo!)!
Got your attention there, didn’t we? :D Here are a few of the categories you might be suited for, and a brief description for each of them:
1. Top Makan2 Expert – Are you the foodie who’s been proudly displaying your latest dishes on your blog, or sharing the best tips for makan spots? If reading your blog induces drooling and severe hunger (hello!), you’re a perfect fit for this category!
2. Fave Tech Head – When it comes to covering the latest in the technological landscape, no one does it better than these techies. Throw your name in for this category if your blog is all about latest tech developments or shiny gadgets!
3. Top Kay Poh – Your latest & hottest goss travels faster than broadband! If your blog keeps people updated on celebrity news like a live Oscar broadcast, this award will make you the talk of the town. Perhaps would be a good fit? :)
4. Top LOL (humor) – The best humor blog around. Give this category a try if your blog just makes people LOL like there’s no tomorrow! comes to mind, who else can you guys think of?
5. Blogger of the year – Self explanatory; no explanation needed :) Put yourself in the running if you think you’re the superstar of the Internet!
6. Best internet for all idea/campaign – What does “Internet For All” mean to you? Tell us as creatively as possible with a blog post or even a video of your own! This is a user generated contest and it’s open to everyone :) Hurry, create your blog post or video to show Malaysians how creative you are.
There are many more categories, so do remember to check out the full list here! You cannominate your blog for any one of the categories as you see fit :) Remember – submit yourself and not others, and do submit your blog URL instead of an individual blog post (except for the Best Internet for All category). Not bold enough to nominate yourself for any of the awards? There’s always the VOTE button to vote for your favorite online movers and shakers!
