Nourishing Body Image Awards Badge

Nourishing Body Image Awards {Call for Nominations}

December 14, 2010 44 Comments by Ashley @ Nourishing the Soul

NTS_Award

I am thrilled to announce that Nourishing the Soul will be delivering it’s very own Nourishing Body Image Awards! These awards are designed to honor those individuals and organizations that make a difference in enhancing the way that each of looks at our bodies, minds, and souls.

Body image encompasses so much more than how happy or sad we are about how our body looks. It encapsulates too the ways in which we feed ourselves, heal ourselves, communicate with ourselves, and deliver our gifts unto the world. I am certain that we can each think of at least person, message, group, etc. that has assisted in enhancing those aspects of our lives in 2010.

And the things that enhance our body image deserve to be rewarded! We’re bombarded with body-hating messages every day. It’s time we spotlighted the messages that help us shine.

This post serves as a call for nominations. Please nominate those people, things, and ideas that have had a special impact on you over the past year. Here are the categories:

Best Body Image Blogger


Best Body Image Website


Most Body Positive Television Show, Movie, or Documentary


Most Body Positive Magazine


Most Body Positive Advertising Campaign (or single advertisement)


Best Body Image Post or Article


Best Body Image Boosting Organization


Most Body Loving Company


Best Body Positive Photo or Image


Most Body Positive Celebrity


Other

Alright people, start nominating! You can nominate for every category and can nominate as many people, groups, etc. as you wish. And you can nominate something fantastic you did as well (I adore self-promotion!). Winners will have the opportunity to display this very special badge above on their site (if applicable).

It would be wonderful if you could make each a separate comment. Or email me a list at nourishingthesoulblog@gmail.com. The awards will be announced Monday, January 10th. Nominations are due by Wednesday, January 2nd.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

p.s. Please, please share this post and spread the call for nominations. Link to it via twitter, facebook, or in a post. Let’s spread the body love!

    I am with Alexandra in voting for Caitlin Boyle as best body image blogger and website! She has such a positive message and probably changed the lives of countless women and would be great if she could reach even more through this contest and your site.

    I’d nominate Angela from Oh She Glows for best body image blogger/website. The TV and magazine questions are tough to answer because I really try to avoid that stuff (not good for me!) and the rest I’d have to give more thought.

    I would like to nominate Guiltless for both the Best Body Image Website, and Best Body Image Blogger. The ladies at Guiltless do an amazing job approaching body image and self-love from a wonderfully different perspective. I am hooked on Guiltless!!

    In the Best Body Image Blogger category I nominate Dr. Dana Udall-Weiner (The Body and the Brood) for her spot-on takes on the way celebrity body images affect women of all ages and for her courageous decision to reveal her own past eating disorder. She knows whereof she speaks!

    Sacred Self developed by the amazing Michelle McGrath should most definitely be up for awards for Best Body Image Blogger/Website. Not only are the products amazing the inspirational messages, dedication and encouragement Michelle delivers is truly inspiring. Good luck Michelle, you deserve an award or two.
