Welcome to the 4th annual Flatmattersonline Year end awards! It is also time to celebrate FM being 8 years old, it really is hard to believe I have been covering what’s going on in the world of flatland for 365 days of the year for 8 years now. The awards is my chance to help give back to the scene that has given me so much over the years, and also it’s a lot of fun going back through and seeing who did what throughout the year.
The reader categories have once again seven categories for you to vote for. Whilst for the editorial awards I will concentrate on the Rider of the Year and the edit of the year.
Voting runs from Monday 19th December through till 9am GMT Tuesday January 3rd with the final results announced the following week, Tuesday January 10th. This gives people plenty of time over the festive period, and more importantly based on feedback from the first year I ran the awards, time after Christmas, less of a rush during the festive period and New Years Eve like 2013. It seemed to work much better in 2014/15, so I’ll stick with it.
Good luck to everyone, look out for some posts related to the awards throughout the remainder of December and a huge thank you to Johann Chan for his amazing graphic design work once again!
