South African Blog Awards 2008
Last night the Tamar Cape Town team attended the annual South African Blog Awards, rubbing shoulders with the who’s who of South African blogerati. The awards, started by Jonathan Cherry in 2005, showcase blogs both written in South Africa but also blogs written by South Africans abroad. Judging this year was done by a panel of 14 judges, and by the general public who made up 70% of the votes.
Prizes consisted of wine from Warwick Estate, laptop computers from Dell, an iPod and an XBox 360. This year each winner also received an indigenous tree from Stodels Garden Center, adding a nice green touch to the event.
Of the 22 categories, here are the ones that are most notable:
South African Weblog of the Year
Congratulations to all the winners!
