Vote for us as the People's Choice in the Christian New Media Awards

The Evangelical Alliance and threads have been shortlisted in the Christian New Media Awards. The results will be announced and celebrated on 1 November 2014 in central London.

For eight years the Christian New Media Awards has sought to celebrate and encourage excellence in Christian engagement online. The aim is to highlight the people and projects that are examples of best practice for the benefit of the Church.

threads, an online collective of people in their 20s and 30s exploring faith and life through blogs and events, has been shortlisted for Multi-author blog of the year. This Alliance programme previously won the award in 2012. The threads collective is made up of 20s and 30s Christians from all walks of life, who are living, working and trying to carve out their identity in the world.

The Evangelical Alliance website has also been shortlisted for the People's Choice Award, which is the only category where the public can vote for their choice to win. A shortlist was created from the hundreds of entries for this award, but you need to choose the winner. Voting closes at 11pm on Monday, 6 October. If you appreciate our website and the wide variety of content and function then please vote here.

Steve Clifford, general director of the Alliance, said: "We're delighted that two of our websites have been shortlisted in these industry awards alongside some outstanding examples of innovative new media.

"For the past few years at the Alliance we have focused significantly on our online presence. threads is a key way in which we are engaging with the 20s and 30s generation and I'm delighted to see how well it's been received and the number of people from across the evangelical spectrum and beyond who have written for it.

"The Alliance website I know is a go-to place for many Christian leaders and churchgoers and we'd be chuffed if we were to win the People's Choice Award."

Other categories at the Awards include blogger of the year, young blogger of the year, most engaging large or small church website, tweeter of the year and app of the year.
