The finalists for the Football Blogging Awards were announced at midday today and I’m delighted to be able to say that A Halftime Report has been named among the finalists for the ‘Best Young Football Writer’ category. To those of you who voted, you have my eternal gratitude. The finalists were decided based on a combination of the number of votes each nominee received and the judges opinions of said blog/website. There are two awards for each category, which will now be decided between the finalists. These are the ‘Fans Choice’ and the ‘Judges Choice’; the fans choice is decided purely on votes from the public, whether they be made via twitter or the FBA’s website, whilst the ‘Judges Choice’ is decided by a team of expert judges.
The voting from the previous round was just to decide upon the finalists, making those votes now void and meaning those who voted previously, may now vote again. As was the case last time out, you can vote via twitter or via the FBA’s website; instructions on how to do so can be found below:

Once again, all votes are much appreciated. Voting closes at midnight on October 30th and the awards ceremony takes place at the National Football Museum in Manchester on November 19th. The event will be hosted by Sky Sport’s Gillette Soccer Saturday reporter Bianca Westwood, and the panel of expert judges include Football Focus presenter Dan Walker, the Daily Mail’s Neil Ashton and Ian Prior, head of sport at the Guardian and the Observer.
