Are you disappointed that you didn’t make it in to the Guardian 100 most powerful people in media?
Well don’t be downhearted because Talk About Local are listing the UnHundred, a slightly tongue in cheek but entirely legitimate & serious list of the top 100 people and sites from the hyperlocal and alternative on-line media communities. Like the Talk About Local UnAwards but better.
We want the people who run the sites that make you laugh, sites that make you think & sites that help you with your hyperlocal projects or people who have done something for the benefit of their community or the wider hyperlocal community, or just something that you like. We are looking for things like:
- On-line community radio stations
- Local Twitter feeds
- Message boards
- Facebook groups
- Using Video
- Using Pictures
- Local news sites
- Most helpful person
- Useful resource sites
If you nominate a site try and tell us who it is who is behind it, the awards are for people after all, if you don’t know don’t worry we’ll try and find them for you.
There are no categories that you need to fit in to, it is totally open to any sites that fit in to the basic criteria of, not being mainstream media and should be predominantly online.
We’ll have a panel of judges from the hyperlocal & on-line media communities who will discuss each nomination and compile the final 100.
Nominations are open now by leaving a comment below. All we need for you to nominate someone is a name & a URL but the more info you can give us the better and 1 or 2 sentences about why you are nominating them.
The top 10 of the UnHundred will win a VIP wristband for the next Talk About Local Unconference.
Away from Talk About Local I take photos, fly my quadcopter and walk my two Beagles.
If I'm not doing any of the above then you'll find me volunteering at my local RNLI station as a press officer.
