It is that time of year again, where we will the celebrate the best Hasbara (Israel advocacy) with the 2014 Hasby Awards! Here is the latest list of nominees.

As with last year, we have a number of categories.

Here are the rules, such as they are:
  • Fell free to nominate in any category as many examples as you want in the comments. Please include URLs!
  • Self-nominations (or seconds) are welcome.
  • Only nominees that are seconded will be in the running. (Probably.) You can second them in the comments as well. The ones listed here must also be seconded. 
  • If you have other categories, feel free to suggest them along with at least one nominee. Some others are listed in last year's nominations page.
  • Last year's winners are no longer eligible for awards in the same category they won.
    It is obvious that I am not good at remembering specific videos/incidents over the past year, so please help me fill those in!
  • I decide who wins, but there will also be People's Choice awards based on a poll.
  • I'll put out a press release when the winners are announced, because some of the nominees last year asked me to.
  • I reserve the right to decide if a nominee is appropriate and will pare down the number of nominees if needed.
  • Please, no extraneous comments on this thread, only nominations, seconds and category suggestions. I will delete them. 
  • This thread is not for voting. That will come later. If your favorite candidate is already seconded, don't comment further.
  • If someone can offer me a decent venue to give the awards as I did last year and in 2010, I'll be happy to give the awards out live! (I'll be in Israel from December 16-24, back on the East Coast before and after.) But if you do offer me a venue, you'll probably also be subjected to a speech.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 14 years and 30,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
