Two Irish Science Blogs Nominated for Eircom Spider Award


Irish science blogs are once again well represented in the 'Big Mouth' category at this year's Eircom Spider Awards. Maria Daly from Science Calling and Eoin Lettice from Communicate Science are included in the eleven strong short list for the people's choice award. It is great to see two science blogs once again included in the short-list - last year Communicate Science were also nominated alongside The Frog Blog. On that occasion, the Frog Bloggers took home the trophy and let's hope that another science blog can do the same in 2011!

As mentioned before, the winners of the 'Big Mouth' Award is decided by a public vote - which currently aren't open as yet - but let's make sure that it's science that once again shouts the loudest! Well done Eoin & Maria!

On other award news - congratulations to all the team at Science Gallery who took home the Irish Web Award for Best Education and Third Level Website on Saturday night. Well done all!
