The future awards 2012 have come and gone! But, interestingly this years edition had a whole lot of nominees in most of the categories unlike the previous editions. For those that did not know, The Future Awards season 7 was hosted by Rivers State Government, in Port Harcourt and held on Sunday, August 26, 2012.
Obviously, the stakes were higher as a few categories where introduced, like "The Best Use of New Media" which had "GIDI TRAFFIC" clinching the award, beating 9 others to it.
Surprisingly, my dear LINDA IKEJI, the sole administrator of the ever popular lindaikeji.blogspot.com and unarguably one of the finest blogger of our time, did not win an award! I honestly thought she deserves the award for young person of the year, but, the judges and may be, just may be, the online voters too, did not share my opinion. Well, its all good.
Well, enough of my grammar! See below for the list of winners in all the 22 categories. Enjoy!
