And the winners are...

The 2005 Koufax Awards are in! We had the honour of being nominated and received a good number of votes. Many thanks to those who supported us but more importantly, for participating. Wampum puts a huge amount of work into these annual blog awards and deserves special recognition for the effort, dedication and shining a light on the best of the blogosphere. The great thing about the Koufax Awards is that suddenly there's a list of great writers, great ideas and original work. In the end, it's fun, and that's what it's all about.
