I’m opening nominations early for the Kiwiblog 2008 Awards, as I don’t want them caught up in the election.
As with last year, there are five categories:
- MP of the Year
- Labour MP of the Year
- National MP of the Year
- Minor Party MP of the Year
- Press Gallery Journalist of the Year
- Public Servant of the Year
Make your nominations below, and then I’ll announce the finalists and run a poll in each category. These are all positive awards – for the best person in each category.
Also are there any missing categories? Feel free to suggest some additional categories.
Last year the winners were:
- MP of the Year – John Key
- Labour MP of the Year – Phil Goff
- National MP of the Year – Bill English
- Minor Party MP of the Year – Heather Roy
- Press Gallery Journalist of the Year – Fran O’Sullivan
- Public Servant of the Year – Kevin Brady
I am instituting a new rule – you can’t win two years running in the same category, So you can’t nominate people in the category they won last year.
