'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The FSF Writers Awards 2011

The Football Supporters' Federation have announced the launch of their revamped and extended Football Writers Awards. They want fans' nominations for the six awards below:

The FSF Fans' Newspaper of the Year Award - The award for the best coverage of football in a newspaper, whether local, regional or national. Whether it's match reports, weekly supplements, feature writers or breadth of coverage that flicks your switch, which is your footballing newspaper of the year?

The FSF Football Website of the Year Award - Whether a co-operative of writers or a one man band, ground-hoppers to club bloggers, podcasts or photos, serious or side-splitting, who has the content that keeps you clicking back again and again?

The FSF Football Writer of the Year Award - An award to acknowledge the talents of the best journalists and professional writers in the business. Whose articles are worth shelling out for a newspaper or magazine alone? Who's the best of the best?

The FSF Football Blogger of the Year Award - An award to recognise the very best 'amateur' writers on the internet.

The FSF Fanzine of the Year Award - Is your club's fanzine deserving of wider recognition? Are the writers capable of churning out page-upon-page of witty, informative and entertaining copy, yet still crazy enough to be standing out in all weathers to sell their wares?

The FSF Photographer of the Year Award - A picture paints a thousand words, so they say, and so a good photo can be the equal of any article. We want to see your best efforts on anything with a football theme.

Fans can nominate up to three people/publications for each category, and nominations should be sent to awards@fsf.org.uk by midnight on the 20th May (midnight on 10th June for the photographer award). The FSF are keen to ensure that as many fans of as many clubs as possible are aware that they can nominate their favourites for national recognition - this is particularly true of regional papers and smaller club blogs/websites that might otherwise not receive the praise and publicity they deserve.

Everyone's heard of Football365 and The Times, but is there a serious blogger or funny website people don't know about but really should? Is your local paper or club correspondent a match for any of the big boys (and girls) in the national media? Every nominated site will be looked at by the FSF's panel, so it's not just a case that the shortlist will comprise those that are the most nominated. If you think someone's worthy of wider recognition, nominate them. If you run your own site and think it's worthy of a place on the shortlist you can always nominate that - the more the merrier.

Full details of the awards, including links to the FAQs and nominations process can be found here: http://www.fsf.org.uk/news/fsf-football-writers-awards-2011.php.
