Blogpost Of The Year Award…

Posted: December 30, 2010 in Uncategorized

I am delighted to announce a new, prestigious  award, to join The Oscars and The Baftas in the red carpet circuit.


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.

Much love


Deadline Midnight Jan 1st 2011

  1. Just to get the ball rolling, here’s a couple of nominations.

    Beauty – Laurie Penny’s gonzo-style piece on the Millbank Riots. It sends shivers done my spine whenever I read it.

    I’m going to be a bit pretentious now and nominate myself (but the rules allow for that, so what the hell) in the truth category. “The Hunt for Raoul Moat did not take place” –

    Hope you like them!
