Pakistan’s second blog awards 2011

After the great success of Pakistan’s first blog awards, PC World (with it’s local representatives) has managed to get Nokia, djuice, Intel and Dell as partners to organize Pakistan’s second blog awards.

So if you are Pakistani and a blogger too, and believe in awards – here’s a chance for you to get things goings.

Rules are pretty much the same as they were last time, but just in case if you don’t know then you can nominate your blog to win award in one of following categories.

You will have to vigorously ask your FnF to vote and comment on your nomination. These votes and comments from your FnF on your page are likely to carry 50 percent weight with rest of 50 percent weightage in the hands of judges. (I hope I understood the terms well, they are mentioned here for a detailed look)

Here’s the official website for blog awards:

Etihad Wins Airline of the Year Award

Etihad Airways has been awarded the title ‘Airline of the Year’ in the 2011 by TTG Travel Awards. The award was announced at a gala, black-tie dinner in London.

These include Etihad’s Diamond First Class being judged the best in the world for the second year running by Skytrax, the aviation industry’s pre-eminent global rankings system, determined by the votes of 19 million travelers from more than 100 different countries.

The TTG judges agreed Etihad was “truly an outstanding airline which offered great service and customer experience.”

It also had a strong business model and had demonstrated innovation and financial success over the past 12 months, along with an effective CSR policy.
