I posted this item, which originated with the folks at FAIR, a few days ago from Carmel, Indiana, and the formatting got all gunked up. (That’s a technical term that you non-geeks shouldn’t even pretend to understand.) So I’m trying it again. And I urge you, once again, to vote early and often. (It would be fun to win an election.)
Mormon FAIR-Cast Nominated for Podcast Award
The People’s Choice Podcast Awards are an annual set of awards given to the best podcasts as voted on by listeners. This year, over 9 million votes were cast and over 5,000 shows were nominated over the 15 day voting period. Ten shows were chosen as nominees in each of 22 different categories. The Podcast Awards Ceremony will be held at the New Media Expo in Las Vegas on January 7th, 2013!
FAIR’s podcast, known as the Mormon FAIR-Cast, which is located at http://www.fairblog.org, has been nominated for the second year in a row to receive a Podcast Award in the “Religion Inspiration” category. We consider this nomination a great honor.
How We Were Nominated
Nominations were open for 15 days in October. The 50 podcasts in each category that received the most votes were reviewed by a 44-member committee that took a variety of factors into account in order to narrow the finalists down to 10 in each category. The total number of votes a podcast received accounted for only 40% of the grading, with the quality of the website’s design (15%), quality of sound (15%), quality of deliverance and show format (10%), and relevance of content (20%) also being considered.
What We Would Like You To Do
Final voting for the awards began today, November 1st, and will end on November 15 at 11:59pm HST. Each person (verified by IP address) may vote ONCE EACH DAY during the 15 days that voting is open. In other words, a single person can cast 15 votes if he or she votes once each day. Please support the Mormon FAIR-Cast by casting your vote at this address:
Remember, you can vote once each day for the 15 days voting is open, and voting only takes a moment.
