Blooker Prize for Bloggers

Blooker Prize has been launched few days back for honouring the finest blooks around the world. This is the first ever literary award for “blooks,” books based on blogs or websites. Sponsored by online self-publishing house Lulu, the competition is accepting entries from anywhere in the world, although all blooks must be printed in English.

The judging panel will be chaired by prominent net activist Cory Doctorow, with the first shortlist announced next March, and the winner on 3rd April 2006. It will reward the best entries from three categories – fiction, non-fiction and comic-blooks – but with one overall winner. Each category winner will win $1,000 (£565), while the winner will receive $2,000 (£1,130) and a place in the annals of tech history.
