AC has opened up nominations for the 2009 People’s Media Awards, an opportunity to recognize the most talented and prolific writers and active community members among us.
AC is doing things a little differently this year, giving Contributors a chance to nominate their favorite Contributors and pieces of content directly through the Profile page. New additions include the Community Spirit Award ($1500 prize) and the Rookie of the Year Award ($500 prize).
Here’s the scoop on the awards and categories:
“Any piece of content can be nominated for one of five Content of the Year awards. The author of each winning piece will receive $500. Please help us by finding and nominating the most insightful, inspiring, unique, useful, powerful and poignant pieces of content published on Associated Content in 2009. Winners can be in any format (text, audio, video, slideshows) and come from any category of the AC library.
