I did a run-down of suggested nominees last year, but feel free to add your own in the comments.
In fact, I’ll post what I said last year here, but with a different one for video – my own! NOMINATE AT http://www.skeptic.org.uk.
There’s a lot of big names that’ll inevitably be in the running (such as Skeptic.com; and Pharyngula won in 2012 I think) – but think outside the box and give these shows some love:
- Doubtful News by Sharon Hill.
- Young Australian Skeptics
- Morning Heresy
- Leaving Fundamentalism by Jonny Scaramanga
- NonProphet Status
- Sexonomics by Dr Brooke Magnanti
- Bruce M. Hood
You’re certainly not going to be lost for choice, with blogs being one of the most popular ways for people to write about skepticism!
—Best Event/Campaign in 2013—
Seriously, vote for your local events and activism efforts, and give them love via a vote. I’ll be voting for the NZ Skeptics Convention or the I Fucking Love Science Australia (IFLSOz) event (I can’t make up my mind) if it’s an event. In terms of campaigns, I’m thinking of the I Immunise campaign by the Immunisation Alliance WA, and what they’ve done for my community.
Token Skeptic won last year, so something went right for me! I have the new show Urban Legendary this year, but it’s too new to vote for, I think? I’ll only have three episodes out by the time voting closes.
I’d rather you send some support to something different, so do consider your favourite shows and supporting up-and-coming gems that can use a boost in profile:
- The Skeprechaun Podcast
- Skeptics With a ‘K’
- The Pod Delusion
- The Pseudo Scientists
Overall? Think about the shows and sites that deserve support and love that may not usually get attention – one of the great things about awards is that even being in the running-up can help build an audience. Thanks!
