Rules and Instructions
The Milbloggies Award recognizes military bloggers for their contribution to blogging, news and information, and to the military over the past year.
Nomination and Voting Overview
1. A military blog can be nominated ONLY once by the same registered user. However, a user can nominate as many military blogs as they wish.
All nominations must be submitted online through Milblogging.com by 11:59 pm EST on Wednesday, September 10th, 2008.
2. The top five nominees in each branch category will be announced on Thursday, September 11th, 2008 and those nominees will move into the Voting Phase beginning September 11th, 2008.
3. Nominees may be military blogs that belong to the following branch categories in the Milblogging.com database:
U.S. Air Force

4. To nominate and/or vote for a military blog, you must be signed in to the website. Registration is quick and free and you will not receive any SPAM. This helps maintain the integrity of voting by reducing possible click fraud.

5. To vote for a military blog (once the nomination phase is over), a chart will be published that includes the top nominees in each category, along with the ability to vote.
The Voting will close on Sunday, September 14th at 11:59 PM EST.
