Yahoo! has launched its search (ahem) for the best, most creative, innovative, and amusing websites within the UK, with The Finds of the Year 2007 awards.
Now in its sixth year, there are around 40 sites broken down into eight categories that will be voted upon by a panel of experts. The public can also vote for The People’s Choice award, with the winners being announced on 16th January next year.
The eight categories are charity, educational, ethical, innovative, social, shopping, travel, and weird and wonderful. The People’s Choice will decide the overall winner.
The shortlist includes our very own The Bag Lady blog, plus the likes of Friends Abroad, Ethical Weddings, Nice Cup of Tea and a Sit Down, Go Goblin, 20 Days, 180 Degrees, and Tache Wars.
This year’s judging panel, who pick a winner from each category. includes Claire Woffenden (WebUser), Haje Jan Kamps (T3), Mark Harris (freelance journalist for The Metro, Independent and T3), Michael Phillips (last year’s People’s Choice winner, Cowforce.com), Nigel Powell (freelance journalist for The Sunday Times), Salim Mitha (Yahoo! Search), Serena Privett (vogue.com), Stuart Miles (Pocket-Lint.co.uk), Tom Whitwell (Times online) and Andy Williams, Yahoo!.
