Love English Macmillan Dictionary Awards 2012

Love English Awards: the results

It’s over – voting has closed, the count has finished, and the UN observers have signed off the results. We’ve seen some fantastic blogs and sites in the course of the last couple of months, and now is the moment of truth for our two winners and the four runners-up.


 Best Blog

There were 50 sites in the Best Blog category, garnering over 7,000 votes between them.

The winner of Best Blog was… (OK, imagine this is reality TV, there’d be a massively long pause here…):

Luke’s English Podcast

with 1,528 votes. Many congratulations!  It was close right up to the very end, but you managed to hold off the two runners-up,

Film English (with 1,222 votes) and

ESL Pod (with 751 votes)

Best Website

Not quite so many nominees in the Best Website category (22 in total), but well over 30,000 votes cast.

Like the best blog category, this was one was close all the way through, but eventually, come midnight, the winner was…


with a massive 7,641 votes. Another close result, with the second placed site only 271 votes behind. The two runners-up are:

English Club (with 7,370 votes) and

World Wide Words (with 4,687 votes).

Congratulations to all nominees. It’s given us the opportunity to browse some fantastic sites, and I’m sure we’ve all added a few more to our bookmarks/favorites.

There’ll be a prize winging its way to our two winners, along with a winner’s badge to display on the site, and the two runners-up in each category also get badges for their sites.

If you were nominated and want a “Nominated for the Macmillan Dictionary Love English Awards 2011” badge, then contact us at and we’ll rush you the badge by return of mail.
