SF Weekly Web Awards Await Your Nominations

Posted By on Fri, Aug 12, 2011 at 9:25 AM


We want to shower local people in praise, cocktails, and confetti -- and we promise to choose nonsticky cocktails when we hand out the SF Weekly Web Awards.

The goal is to recognize some of the folks who make our local online scene so delicious. Food is just a small part of the awards, but we have five categories:

Best Food Blogger

Best Food Vendor Twitterer

Best Local Source for Food Porn

Best Restaurant Website

Best Yelper

We've lined up an interesting panel of local celebrities to be the judges, but they need someone to pass judgment on.

Here's how you nominate.

Head to our Web Awards Page, where you'll see a bunch of empty boxes. Simply type the names of your nominees into the boxes.

Behind the scenes, a trained staff of microsurgeons will extract the names, spellcheck them, dust and polish the letters, and carefully add them to the file of other nominees. You may enter more than one name in each category, because those little guys are just that fast.

We need your nominations by Sunday, Aug. 21. On Monday, Aug. 22, we'll post an online poll where everyone can vote for your favorites. Please avoid ballot-box stuffing; the miniature people back there have been grumbling about joining Local 178.5 of the Elves, Pixies, and Barbacks' Union, and that would send our personnel costs soaring. Right now they work for pie, but that's another story.

So go nominate, and try not to think of the little men and women in your computer.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
