Announcing 4TAWA and a call for nominations
Go get yourself a big thick permanent marker and put this date in your diary right now: Thursday December 17 will be the Fourth (The) Annual Wellingtonista Awards. Yes, that’s right, it’s TAWA TIME! As is tradition, the awards will be at the lovely Mighty Mighty, and there will be all kinds of other goodness on the night that we have yet to announce. For now though, it is safe to say that we recommend taking the Friday afterwards off.
And what would the awards be without nominations? We want you to suggest who you would like to be nominated in each of the categories. This is where I break out the bold tags. This is your only chance to say who should be nominated. By the time we open up voting, it will be too late. Leave us your comments and suggestions now. Suggestions for nominations will be open until November 1, then we will take your ideas under advisement, and come out with our final lists. Voting will open in early November.
