A lot of you guys have been asking me about sponsorship. I gave first refusal on sponsorship to one or two people but they haven’t come back to me. As a result I’m now throwing it open to the public. If you wish to sponsor a category then let me know. Prices are below.
Just a reminder: We have 12 categories
- Best Blogger
- Best Blog Post
- Most Humorous Post
- Best Photo Blog
- Best Fictional Piece in a Blog
- Best Arts and Culture Blog
- Best Political Blog
- Best Group Blog
- Best Comment/Commenter
- Best Personal Blog
- Best Use of the Irish Language in a Blog
- Best Contribution to the Irish Bloggersphere (Tech wise)
I would like if possible to have someone sponsor a category for 50-70 euros. Except the Best Blogger prize which I think should be more significant such as an iPod Nano or something like that.
The 50-70 idea is that if someone sponsors the iPod then I’d ask for 50 euros to sponsor each category but if nobody stumps up for it, then I would ask for 70 euros to sponsor a category, with 20 going to fund the iPod. 11 x â‚¬20 should get a 2gb iPod Nano. The 50 euros would then be spent on book or cd/dvd vouchers or if anyone wants to suggest prizes for each category costing 50 eurs or less, please say!
Edited to Add: I have a feeling that many sponsoring might be nominated, so because of that I would like to choose which category that you sponsor, just in case.
I’d also like spotprizes on the night*, so if anyone has any vouchers left over from Christmas and wishes to donate them let me know. If you are a company and don’t want to sponsor money but want to donate your product or service for a spotprize then send me a mail.
You can contact me on IrishAwards (at) gmail.com to talk about sponsorship of the categories.
* That is if we have enough numbers to book a room. I’m still waiting on feedback about who can attend. Only two people have let me know so far and I don’t think booking a room for that many is going to be the best idea.
