JIB Awards 2005

Note: This post will remain at the top until the next JIBs announcement. Scroll down for new posts.

 

For the second year running, I am proud to present to you the JIB Awards.

 

The word JIB, besides being an acronym for Jewish and Israeli blog, also represents the small triangular sail of a sailboat, as compared to the main sails. The jib’s role is to direct the wind into the main sail, just like a role of Jewish, Israeli, and pro-Israel bloggers is to direct world opinion in favor of Israel. And to really stretch the metaphor, the object of these awards is to direct new readers towards Jewish, Israeli, and pro-Israel blogs.

 

While weblog awards of this kind mean little in the grand scheme of things, they are a fun way to increase blog readership, and, in the case of the JIB Awards, promote Jewish, Israeli, and pro-Israel blogs.

 

Last year’s awards attracted hundreds of blog nominations, generating much buzz and excitement in the Jewish Blogosphere, and even attracting attention from the blog community at large. This year, the competition promises to be even more exciting, as the Jewish and Israeli blog world has at least doubled in size since last year, and is continuing to grow.

 

In addition, I am proud to inform you that I have been able to secure the involvement of the Jerusalem Post this year. The Post has agreed to host all of the voting, and promote the awards on their website, a move that should guarantee even more publicity and attention directed towards the Jewish and pro-Israel blogosphere.

 

As was the case last year, the JIBs will involve two main stages. At the first stage, nominations will be taken for 16 categories, after which time a preliminary round of voting will take place. The top vote-getters from the preliminary voting round will advance to the final round of voting, with the top 3 place-getters from each category receiving fame, glory and special banners.

 

The timeline is as follows:

Dec 12th -18th: Nominations in 16 categories open on Israellycool 

Jan 2nd – 12th: Preliminary voting round on Jerusalem Post

Jan 17th – 26th: Final voting round on Jerusalem Post

Jan 31st: Winners announced

 

In the meantime, please help spread the word about the awards.

For the second year running, I am proud to present to you the JIB Awards.
