Also new to this year’s event is that we will be announcing the winners at an awards ceremony at the swanky Shoreditch House in London on 25 November.

So we need your help to tell us your favourite IT blogs, so that our shortlist of captures the best of the UK IT blogosphere right now. The only criteria we ask is that nominated blogs include some coverage of the UK IT industry.

We want to know the blogs that have got you hitting the subscribe button or compelled you to leave a comment. You can even nominate your own blog – although what happens after that is down to your peers across the industry. Its easy to nominate just go to our nominations page and add your favourite blogs there.

If your blog gets through to the shortlist we will be opening the judging upto the great British IT public to cast their votes and select the category winners.
