openDemocracy has been shorlisted for the New Statesman New Media Awards in the category of "Contribution to civic society". Other candidates are My Society super star Not Apathetic, Public Whip, and TheyWorkForYou. Congratulations to the brilliant folks behind all three projects. Losing to them wouldn't hurt so much. Losing to Net House Prices (cool site, but how on earth did they make that category?) would.
