Nominate the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2013

Nominate the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2012

Innovation Excellence loves making innovation insights accessible for the greater good, because we truly believe that the better our organizations get at delivering value to their stakeholders the less waste of natural resources and human resources there will be.

As a result we are eternally grateful to all of you out there who take the time to create and share great innovation articles, presentations, white papers, and videos for Innovation Excellence. As a small thank you to many of the great Innovation Excellence contributors, we like to make a list of the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers available each year and to make some great prizes available for members of the community who vote for them – to possibly win!

Our lists from the three previous years have been tremendously popular:

Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2010 (download the PDF)
Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2011 (download the PDF)
Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2012 (download the PDF)

Innovation Excellence is now looking for the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2013.

Do you, or does someone you know, write articles about innovation?

Or do you just have someone that you like to read that writes about innovation, or some of the important adjacencies – trends, consumer psychology, change, leadership, strategy, marketing, management, collaboration, or social media (as they relate to innovation)?

Well, Innovation Excellence is looking to recognize the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers and you can help us find them.

People who nominate someone to be included on the list will be entered into the prize drawings for a range of great prizes (we’ll add more prizes here as event organizers and others offer them up), including:

  1. Conference Tickets – events TBD (why not yours?)
  2. Two (2) one-year subscriptions to our very affordable Innovation Excellence Research offering – $300 per person per year value (each)
  3. Two (2) signed copies of the five-star book – Stoking Your Innovation Bonfire by Braden Kelley – priceless
  4. Two (2) copies of How Stella Saved the Farm by Chris Trimble and Vijay Govindarajan- $19.99 value each
  5. More prizes TBD

Let us know in the comments whether some of the prizes we are gathering should be reserved for the top couple of vote-receiving authors, or whether the prizes should all be reserved for the people nominating innovation bloggers to the list.

The deadline for submitting nominations is December 15, 2013 at midnight GMT.

You can submit a nomination either of these two ways:

  1. Sending us the name of the blogger and the url of their blog by @reply on twitter to @ixchat
  2. Sending the name of the blogger and the url of their blog and your e-mail address using our contact form

So, think about who you like to read and let us know by midnight GMT on December 15, 2012.

We will then compile a voting list of all the nominations, and publish it on December 16, 2012.

Voting will then be open from December 16-31, 2012 via comments and twitter @replies to @ixchat.

The ranking will be done by me with influence from votes and nominations. The quality and quantity of contributions to Innovation Excellence by an author will be a contributing factor (through the end of the voting period), so there is still time for authors and bloggers to make their first (or your best) contribution to Innovation Excellence yet. To contribute to Innovation Excellence, simply:

  1. Join the community
  2. Click on the ‘Add Content’ option in the site’s main menu and log in with the same username and password you used to create your account

The official Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2013 and the contest winners will then be announced on Innovation Excellence on January 2, 2014.

We’re curious to see who you think is worth reading.

Editor’s Note: Conference tickets are for conference admission only and are ultimately at the discretion of the conference organizers to grant. Travel and any other expenses for attending the conference are the responsibility of the winner. All deadlines are midnight GMT on the day mentioned.
