Best Blogs Contest: Nominate now (but what qualifies as "journalistic"?)
DW-WORLD.DE, the online portal of German international broadcaster Deutsche Welle is looking for;

the best Weblogs in 11 different categories, including Best Weblog, Best Topic, Best Design, Best Weblog Innovation and Best Journalistic Weblog. A total of seven of the Best Journalism prizes will be awarded -- one in each of our competition languages. Weblogs from all over the world can be nominated for the awards, provided they have been written in English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese or Arabic

The contest, called the Best of the Blogs (BOB) awards, is interesting in its geographical and linguistic spread. Nominate now!

But what qualifies?

My problem with the competition is this:
How do you define "journalistic" blogs? What is the difference between say Poynters E-Media Tidbits, an aggregator ( a daily must read, and where I first saw the contest), Dan Gilmores more traditionally "journalistic" blog and Wonkette or David Weinberger's weblog which is more of a "conversational" blog?

The journalism/blogging discussion just got more fuel :-)
