I keep forgetting to mention, that despite interrogating the founder of the SEMMYS, they somehow managed to nominate one of my articles.
While the SEMMY awards are targeted to the search marketing industry, there is a Design and Usability category. It is there that an article I wrote for Website Magazine, called Everyday Usability – 14-Point Checklist for Success has been nominated for inclusion.
Tomorrow, judges decide category finalists. Those finalists will be announced on January 25, 2010 and posted to the public so that they can begin their voting. Winners are announced on February 1.
Competition is fierce. Every single nominated article in all the categories is very good.
If you would like to stay on top of the voting and winners, you call follow the SEMMY Twitter account.
Good luck to everyone and especially the judges. They have a truly tough job.
