This Is My Joystick longlisted for three Wales Blog Awards

August 23, 2012, Author: Ray Willmott

Following on from last year’s success, it is a great priviledge to inform you that This Is My Joystick has been longlisted for three Wales Blog Awards this year!

Last year, in the Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff, This Is My Joystick won the Best Technology Blog Award for their hard work and dedication. After being presented the award by Rant Media, we’ve gone from strength to strength and gained even more notoriety in both the Welsh community and around the globe.

This year, the WBA have longlisted us for three awards, a step forward from last years two.

This year, This Is My Joystick have been longlisted for Best Technology, Best Multimedia and Best Writing on a Blog!

We feel extremely humbled, and can’t wait to find out the results of the judge’s shortlisting over the coming week.

The Wales Blog Awards are in their third year of running, and this year, the WBA have seen a record 327 entries across all categories, making this year the most competitive yet. Notable additions to this year’s Best Technology Category include TechBeast and GGSGamer. Congratulations to both of those.

In addition to that news, we’re also excited to announce that News Editor, Ray Willmott, will be giving a talk on last year’s Wales Blog Award win and the implications of that in the Maldron Hotel in Cardiff on the 4th September at 7pm! If you live locally (or even if you don’t!), please feel free to attend.

For those that can’t make it, however, we are hoping to get the talk on film, and upload to our You Tube Channel at a later date.

More news on this story as we get it.
