Have you heard? There's a great event going on called The Softie Awards. It's the brainchild of my good friend Terry and going to be an annual event. Check out the rules here and also look at all the wonderful entries so far at Flickr. A distinguished panel of judges will narrow the choices down to five in each category (thankfully!) and then the judging will be turned over to the public to determine the winner; sounds fun, huh? While your at it, check out Terry's blog too, Softies Central. She's a huge fan of softies with several books coming out soon and besides that, one of the nicest people you'll ever get a chance to know!
