Lightning Strikes Twice; Ninjamatics Weblog Double Win for THE Blog

lighting
Well, by jove… I wasn’t sure we could top last year, but not only were we nominated in two separate categories this year– but we are walking home with two medals. A silver and bronze place finish in the Best Weblog About Writing & Literature | Écriture et littérature and Best Weblog About Arts & Culture | Arts et culture categories respectively. A hearty congrats to weekly poster and #WriterWednesday Laureaute, Evan Jobb for all the blood sweat and tears that he has poured in to his weekly musings on life as an emerging screenwriting talent in Canada. Evan took over the annual #WW Laureate post from Carolynne Ciceri, who also every now and then will grace THE Blog with a surprize missive from the Cocoverse. Without these two tremendous writing talents, this blog would not be half of what it is. We tip our hats to you both!! (as do the Canadian Weblog Award judges).

You can check out the other winners in these categories and others on the The Ninjamatics’ 2011 Canadian Weblog Awards Winners page!

And now that you’ve learned that we are award-winning, again. There is still time for you to submit your screenplay for our own awards in the 4th edition of the annual Canadian Short Screenplay Competition.

Check out the entry details here. Contest for 2011/12 ends January 31st, 2012 at 11:59 pm PST.
