Last year issues two and three were released and as much as this editor likes to think the best in his work, it's always down to the content that steals the show. The old adage of "Content is king" could never be truer online as it is offline and as such, six deserving articles have been nominated in the Jasmine Awards 2014. To say I'm chuffed to bits is an understatement because I'm utterly thrilled for everyone involved, including all the contributors for whom this magazine wouldn't be possible.
As a small aside; I'm hoping 2015 will be a truly big year for ODOU as I plan to change the format slightly and make the magazine I set out to achieve... More news to follow.
The nominations are:
The Jasmine Soundbite Award (Magazine category)
The Jasmine Literary Award
"The Consolation of Dependence" by Alex Musgrave – issue three
"Reflection Eternal" by Dana El Masri – issue three
"Journey into Light" by Neil Chapman – issue three
"Foraging for Mushrooms" by Liam Moore – issue three
A big thank you to The Fragrance Foundation and the judges, and a big congratulations to everyone nominated in all their respective categories. Here's the full nominations list . It was great fun last year at the awards, hoping it will be just as enjoyable this year!
