Award nomination

Now that the Oscars sideshow is out of the way, we can turn our undivided attention to the main event of this late-winter awards season: the FutureBook digital innovation awards. Organized in association with The Bookseller, these awards are in their inaugural year.

Macmillandictionary.com has battled its way onto the shortlist for Best Website in the face of some fierce competition, and we’re hoping to add to our tally of awards – remember the triumph of MacmillanDictionaryBlog.com in the Eddies in 2009?



There are seven categories in all, which attracted 93 nominations of which 22 were for Best Website. The judging took place on Tuesday 8th March and the winners will be announced on Thursday 17th at a top London venue behind Charing Cross Station.

Other categories include Best use of social media, Best workflow innovation, Best content innovation… yes, yes, all very worthy, but let’s face it: Best website has got to be the top award on offer.

And as it’s sporting month here on the blog, it feels only fitting to end with a few clichés. At the end of the day we’ll be either gutted or sick as a parrot if we don’t win. But of course we’re all hoping to be over the moon come 10 o’clock next Thursday night.
