Webby Awards only 2 days left to vote

Amazingly Transport for London's website is up for a Webby! "Transport for London's (TfL's) website has been nominated this year for two awards in the internet equivalent of the Oscars...... The body nominated TfL's website for excellence in its interactive design, creativity, usability and functionality.

"TfL's site is the only one representing London and the UK in its category. The other nominees are Peace Corps, EnergyStar@home, San Francisco International Airport and the city site 'Secrets of New York'."

In 2005 I was lucky enough with this blog to be a Webby Award Honoree. I've never appeared in their listings since, but hey, life's not all about Awards (Three times Bloggie Finalist & never won - I'm not bitter, not at all, not even slightly, wouldn't like to mention it).

Anyway as well as the ones which are nominated and judged by the industry experts, there is a People's Voice Voting site, where you can "Vote for your favorites from five nominees in Web and Mobile Sites, Interactive Advertising and Online Film & Video".

You need to register to vote but once there you can then vote for sites in as many categories as you like. Well done to TfL for getting there. Another site that you might be interested in voting for is MOO.com, I've had MOO mini cards for ages. Most of the bloggers I know have MOO cards. At last night's London Blogger's Meet up if you had a business card for blogging the majority were MOO cards. Moo.com are in the 'Marketplace' group in the 'Retail' category and under the 'Services' group in the 'Services' category.

I will declare an interest here in that Mecca who works for MOO has been banging on about this for days now and I just want to shut her up by blogging it, as my ears are beginning to hurt.

Webby 5s - and People's Voice Voting Party

I met her for a drink after she went to the Webby Awards Party and she was shamelessly schmoozing up to the Webby Awards team, in the pub.

Anyway voting closes on the 1st May, so get your votes in now. Many thanks.
