I am delighted to announce a new, prestigious award, to join The Oscars and The Baftas in the red carpet circuit.
Welcome to QRG’s BLOGPOST OF THE YEAR AWARD 2010
There will be two categories: ‘Beauty’ and ‘Truth’
In ‘Beauty’ I will be looking for a piece of writing that takes the breath away and sends your skin into goosepimples. It does not matter about the subject or form: it can be pornography, journalism, poetry or fiction or anything. It just has to be… beautiful.
‘Truth’ will include posts which seek to find some truth about a subject. I will be impressed by those which chip away at the rock of knowledge and find a diamond in the rough. Again the form and subject are not crucial, it can be non-fiction, a story, science writing, history, journalism, sex, gardening, anything. The key point is how it tells and/or finds a truth.
I won’t leave any examples here but I have my eye on a few posts already.
Please leave your nominations in the comments box. You can even nominate your own work.
And there will be a prize for the winner.
