We had a marvelous night on Thursday at the second annual NOPA awards for football bloggers and podcasters. Of course all nominees and attendees are winners but here are the actual winners:
- Blizzard Award for Best Young Blogger – Jack Lang for Snap, Kaka Pop
- Telegraph Fantasy Football Award for Best International Blog – Ben Shave for Cahiers du Sport
- Socrates Award for Outstanding Contribution to blogging – Damon Threadgold and Simon Barnett for the Real FA Cup
- Coral Award for Best New Blog – Liam Ferry for On Goals Scrored
- Media Crossover Award – Michael Cox for Zonal Marking
- Best Contributor to a Blog or a Podcast – Andrew Thomas for Twisted Blood
- Best Tweeter – OptaJoe
- IAMPLAYR Award for Best Podcast – Guardian Football Weekly
- Paddy Power Award for Best Blog – In Bed With Maradona
- The People’s Choice Award – the Anfield Wrap
As I say it was a great evening. We’d like to thank everyone that attended, all of our sponsors and guest presenters.
We don’t have the figure yet but I hope we’ve raised a ton of cash for DS Active – the official charity of the NOPAs.
Until next year.
