Bloggers win Prizes – Sponsorship of Categories

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 €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) 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.

Thanks, Damien.

    I have a bit of pull with a bookshop or two, so I’ll see if I can get them interested. Will let you know, Damien…and thanks for all the hard slog you’re putting in.

    I’m not sure I could sponsor anything (perhaps some LC Biology notes?), but this is to let you know that I’ll almost certainly be able to attend.

  3. would love to sponsor the best political blog Damo.

  4. Steve says:

    365 would love to sponsor a category too 🙂
