Submit Nominations and Vote

We’re gearing up for the 5th Annual Plutus Awards. Each year has brought improvements, and we’re thrilled to be a part of the closing night festivities at FinCon14. We’re looking forward to being even more closely integrated with FinCon — and ready to recognize what’s best about the financial blogging community.

There are a number of exciting changes in the works for Plutus. A new website design is on the way, along with a process for easier voting and increased social integration to make it easier to share your Plutus votes with your peers.

This year’s MC for the Plutus Awards is Ashley Jacobs, from Wise Bread. After her performance in the “Thrift Shop” parody from last year, we’re excited to see what she brings to the Plutus Awards.

We’re also bringing back some categories that were axed from the Awards in the past, and adding new categories that reflect the growing diversity of the personal finance blogosphere and the multimedia efforts that many bloggers are making.

As we’ve done in the past, we will open up nominations in categories to the public. Once nominations are collected, the top five vote-getters in each category, with the exception of Blog of the Year, Lifetime Achievement, and People’s Choice (each has 10 in a category) will be announced as finalists.

A panel of personal finance bloggers will then vote on those finalists, choosing the winner in each category, with the exception of the People’s Choice award, which is given entirely on the basis of a popular vote.

Here are some of the important dates to be aware of as we approach Plutus Awards season:

  • Nominations for Plutus Awards will open on August 1, 2014, and we will continue accepting nominations/votes until August 25, 2014. People’s Choice voting will continue until September 17, 2014.

It’s going to be an exciting year for FinCon and for Plutus. We hope you’ll join us.
