The Third Annual Plutus Awards

The Third Annual Plutus Awards season will begin on August 1, 2012. From the launch on that date through the month of August and into September, bloggers and their audiences will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite money-related blogs, while bloggers will have the opportunity to have a say in selecting their favorite financial products and services. The winners in all categories will be announced at an event — an awards ceremony sure to be like no other — at the Financial Blogger Conference, on Thursday, September 6, 2012.

The Plutus Awards are designed to reflect the personal finance blogosphere. From August 1 through August 14, bloggers will be encouraged to vote and solicit votes from their readers, friends, and fellow bloggers across a number of categories, such as “Best Frugality Blog” and “Best Personal Finance Blog for Students.” On August 22, we will announce five finalists in each category, with each blog being limited to becoming a finalist in a maximum of two categories. A committee of fifteen personal finance bloggers are being selected to represent the personal finance blogosphere at large, and a secret ballot will be used to determine the winner in each category. At the same time, public voting will begin for the People’s Choice Plutus Award.

Voting for the People’s Choice Plutus Award will end the morning of Thursday, September 6, and all winners will be announced live at the Financial Blogger Conference that evening. Authors representing winning blogs will receive a small prize package, though they are not required to attend the conference in order to win an award or to receive a prize.

This process is a little different than last year’s to ensure that the community is well-represented in the Plutus Awards results while still allowing for a popular vote.
