2013 LAMMY Awards: A mini-guide
Remember, voting is open to current LAMBs only (#1-1550).
This year, I decided to take part in LAMMY awards. In case you didn't know, the LAMMY’s are web awards that honor the talent, dedication and expertise that exists within our blogging community, the Large Association of Movie Blogs.
LAMB members have been busy at LAMB forums. You are encouraged to not be shy, put forward your own name, or suggest other LAMB sites you think are worthy of an award. Deadline for submissions is March 17.
What you need to know:
1.) Feb 25 - March 17: Members can put forward submissions(18 categories) (Using LAMB forums)
2.) March 21 - April 3: Voting for which submissions should be nominees (Using SurveyMonkey)
3.) March - April: FYC(For Your Consideration) Poster campaigning and tournament. (optional)
4.) April 15 - April 16 : LAMMY nominees on LAMBcast. Nominee list published at LAMB site.
5.) April 16: Nomination banners sent to LAMMY Nominees.
6.) April 17 - April 30: Final voting to decide LAMMY winners. (Using SurveyMonkey)
7.) May 6 - May 15: Official LAMMY winners announced through video presentations, 2 per day.
8.) May 16: Winner list at LAMB site. Winner banners sent to LAMMY Winners.

I hope my mini-guide was useful.

Thanks a ton for sharing and spreading the word!!!!!ReplyDelete
@Shep. Burman: No problem! I put this together, so I can easily keep track of all the upcoming LAMMY dates. Hopefully this timetable is useful to other LAMB members as well.ReplyDelete
I really want to win a LAMMY this year. BTW, do you know how to make banners?ReplyDelete
@thevoid99: Good luck with that! I’ve submitted my name for Best Community Builder, because I do Monthly links from the blogosphere posts.Delete
Banners, I'd like to know how to make a FYC poster myself. There must be a website where it’s easy. Anyone able to help out here in comments?
I think the best advice I can give is: Download and install GIMP (its free), then play around with it. Also, Google or YouTube some tutorials.Delete
@Bonjour Tristesse: Thanks for the advice!Delete
Fantastic! Thanks again for helping us spread the word!ReplyDelete
@NeverTooEarlyMP: Happy to spread the word! I've also put a LAMMY awards image on my sidebar.Delete
I already voted most of them. But some categories I have a hard time filling like Best Horror Blog (I know I have to search, but don't have much time). Some I voted only one or two blogs.ReplyDelete
Feel free to submit in as many or few categories as you feel able. We're just happy that you're part of it!Delete
@Andina: Yeah, a group of LAMB members have been busy in submission stage. But last year I read only 86 participated in final voting(out of 1200+ active blogs). Hopefully we can get over a 100 voters in 2013 :)Delete
Probably need LAMB staff to approach the lesser known blogs that are silent and not participating. The more awareness/promotion of LAMMY awards in blogosphere, the better. Maybe you (or anyone else who reads this?) could put a LAMMY awards image on sidebar of your site. Every little bit helps.
David : Thanks! I was hoping to be more involve this yearDelete
Chris : Banner is a great idea. Thanks, Chris!
I'm getting Weinstein to run my campaign!ReplyDelete
@Pete: lucky dog :)Delete
Enormously helpful, Chris. Thank you!ReplyDelete
@Dusty McGowan: You're welcome! Hope you participate.Delete
Thanks Chris. I've submitted by votes, good luck to you & everyone!ReplyDelete
@Ruth: Nice to hear you're taking part. Good luck to you too!ReplyDelete
Great stuff, Chris. It's nice to have a quick rundown of event dates.ReplyDelete
@Josh: Thanks. Glad the rundown of LAMMY event dates is useful!Delete
