Nominations Open:2006 Press Plagiarist of the Year

This unique, specially commissioned, beautiful trophy and conceptual artwork representing the until now under-recognised journalistic skills of cutting and pasting will once again be awarded to the journalist nominated by blog readers to have excelled in this under-recognised area.


This year we are making two changes to the award – an international category to recognise the efforts of foreign journalists. The winner of the UK award will, in addition to the trophy, also receive a specially drafted Claim for Monies Owed from the Courts.

Let Guido remind you of the nomination criteria: a story has to be pinched from an original blog source, either verbatim or in essence, and no credit / payment given to the original source. This qualifies as plagiarism. Similar stories on subjects eliciting similar comments do not pass this test, since even lazy journalists can have the same ideas as brilliant bloggers.

International interest in this award is high, nominees will be nerve wracked. Get nominating…

I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
