Last Minute Tidbits on Voting for the Book Awards
Just a reminder that today is the final day you can vote for the 2014 Small Business Book Awards nominees. Here’s additional info for you.
Two Types of Winners
We will be announcing both Community Choice and Judged winners at our online awards ceremony June 4 at 2pm ET via Live Google Hangout On Air. Here are the details on both types of winners:
- COMMUNITY CHOICE WINNERS -- The nominee with the top number of votes overall and the top vote getter in each category at the conclusion of Community Voting will each be named a Small Business Book Awards Community Choice winner. Recognition includes publicity as a winner, as well as the right to display Community Choice Winner insignia on books, websites, brochures and elsewhere. Community Choice winners will be chosen by the popular vote (8 representing one in each of the categories), and one will be the overall Community Choice winner.
- JUDGED WINNERS -- Overall and Category Winners will be determined separately by the Judging Panel, based on excellence and merit. Judged Winners will get recognition, including publicity as a winner, as well as the right to display Winner insignia on books, websites, brochures and elsewhere.
The voting will end tonight at midnight Pacific time and you’ll be able to see the community choice winners at that time -- BUT that’s not all -- the final book award winners will be selected by our judging panel (link to the judges) based on the merits of the book including such things as freshness, content and usefulness in addition to other criteria that our expert judging panel is considering.
So keep voting until Midnight, then look for the winners’ announcement next week.
