Vaughan Smith up for a Guardian gong

OK. Here’s some great news. Club founder and journalist whizz of the old school, Vaughan Smith, is up for a gong at the inaugural Media Guardian Innovation Awards, or MEGAs, for his live blogging, video reports, twittering and picture taking from the frontline on this very blog. He is up against two other blogs in the Independent Blog category, not bad for a first time blogger 🙂 Vaughan blogged his every move and filmed the moves of those around him in Helmand province, Afghanistan. The blog culminated in a 16 minute report for BBC Newsnight. Very well done to Vaughan. The awards will be announced on 6th March at a ceremony in London. And we hope to win… have crossposted on Vaughan’s blog.
