Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) January 5, 2009
LoveToBeCatholic.com today announced that nominations are now being accepted for the first annual Catholic New Media and Innovation Awards.
Who is the best in Catholic New Media? Where are the innovators in Catholic evangelization? Tom Hall, Founder of http://www.LoveToBeCatholic.com asked these questions. Not finding definitive answers, Mr. Hall decided to launch the first annual Catholic New Media and Innovation Awards. The purpose of the award is to find and highlight the best in Catholic New Media and acknowledge those using innovate ways to evangelize the Catholic faith.
Hall stated, "This is something I have wanted to do for some time now. This is my small effort to bring attention to the good work of many talented, dedicated people who unselfishly find unique and original ways to evangelize the Catholic faith."
LoveToBeCatholic.com has set up a special email account for nominations and related correspondence. Nominations are to be sent to awards(at)lovetobecatholic.com.
Mr. Hall says that there are no specific award categories. "I prefer to keep the nomination field broad and defined only as new media and innovation. It will be fun to see what suggestions people send to us." Award winners will be announced in late January. What do the winners receive? Mr. Hall emphasizes that there will be no red carpet ceremony, awards banquet, or celebrities fawning over the winners. He does hope that the award generates a little publicity for the winners and their good work.
