New Media Award nominations invited
Nominations are now open for the New Statesman New Media Awards 2006. This site has won the national award twice and been commended on three occasions.
If any local residents want to nominate the Brookmans Park Newsletter for this year’s award, you can do so by filling out the form on the New Statesman site.
If you do, the site will appear on the page on the New Statesman site listing all nominations.
The most important category is probably the Independent Information Award category where, according to the New Statesman, "the award will go to the individual or organisation that best uses new media technology to provide an alternative, informative voice enhancing democratic debate."
The form (click here to access it) has a space where people can write why they feel the site should be considered for the award.
If anyone does decide to nominate the site, please nominate 'The Brookmans Park Newsletter' and not any individuals connected with the site - it's a team effort and a massive part of that effort are all the contributions made to this forum and the content contributed by local community groups.
