Salon des Vins de Loire: Wine Blog Trophy 2010

Jim's Loire won the best blog trophy in the journalist category

The list of blogs shortlisted for the various categories in the 2010 Wine Trophy organised by the Salon des Vins de Loire is published here as well as details of the various categories and the list of judges here. This year I'm on the other side of the fence as I'm a member of the jury. My congratulations to all shortlisted blogs.

For the 2010 edition the blog competition has been revamped. There are now four categories: la plus belle plume (the best writing), le meilleur design (the best design), la meilleure interactivité (the most interactive) and la mention spéciale Loire (that features the Loire). The blog that gets the most points from the jury will win Le Meilleur Blog award.

There is also an opportunity for everyone to vote for their favourite blog from those shortlisted. The blog with the most votes will win the Prix des Internautes. Voting opened on Tuesday 5th January and continues until 25th January. Vote here. I hope that there will be lots of votes.

And when I say you deserved it, Jim, I'm not trying to buy your vote ;-))
