August recess is bittersweet for Washington media. Sure, the break is a good chance to catch a breath but it’s tough to produce headlines when the news cycle is as stagnant as the heavy, summer heat.
Rather than singing the slow news blues for the next few weeks, FishbowlDC is making August our bitch by kicking off another senseless, summer contest. Now through Monday, August 8th at 12p, we’re accepting nominations for FishbowlDC’s Summer Superlatives 2011 – our twisted take on high school senior superlatives.
You can nominate yourself, a friend, foe, or frenemy for one of 12 categories (below). Nominations can be submitted via email firstname.lastname@example.org or through our anonymous tips box. Just be sure to include the category, nominee’s name, employer and any info that supports your pick (photo, story, examples, etc).
Each day from Tuesday to Friday of next week, we’ll announce the nominees and open up voting for three different categories. Winners will be determined by earning the most votes in a 24-hour period. Happy nominating!
