Just a brief note to let you know that Delimiter has been recognised as a finalist in a slew of awards to be announced on the technology journalism industry’s annual night of nights – the IT Journalism Awards 2010, otherwise known as ‘The Lizzies’.
Delimiter itself is a finalist in the categories of Best Website, Best News Coverage and Best Business Technology Coverage, while Delimiter publisher Renai LeMay is a finalist in the categories of Best News Journalist, Best Business Technology Journalist, Best Technology Industry Journalist and Best Columnist.
Unfortunately there was no category for Best Apple Troll Story, otherwise we would likely have been a contender in that area as well.
To be announced in several weeks’ time, the awards will see Delimiter go up against a wide range of other prestigious technology titles – including Gizmodo, iTNews, Lifehacker, The Sydney Morning Herald, ZDNet.com.au, The Australian Financial Review, The AustralianIT, Australian Reseller News, CIO, Business Review Weekly, Communications Day and more.
We’ve worked directly with journalists from many of these titles in the past and continue to do so – and of course we see them daily at events and are always reading their stories. There was some great work done in 2010, and we’re proud to be part of this industry. Finally, best of luck to all those competing – and to the victor go the spoils!
PS: The photo above is one of the famous trophies from which The Lizzies takes its name — although we suspect it may also be a reference to Hunter S. Thompson’s seminal work, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
