What was your favorite journal of the past year? Which review said it best? Who deserves a reign as Travel Writer of the Year? Here are the categories and details for the 2008 U GO! Awards!

Send your nominations—up to three in each category—by Friday, October 17, to with the subject line "Award Nominations." Include the IgoUgo member names and links associated with all journals, reviews, or photos being nominated.

This year, in recognition of the many wonderful stand-alone reviews submitted since their introduction in December, we’re excited to accept nominations for journals or one-off reviews and experiences in the writing categories. Feel free to nominate both journals and specific reviews that you enjoyed! But please note that only journals, reviews, and photos contributed between September 2, 2007, and October 1, 2008, are eligible for consideration, and that the New Travel Writer of the Year must have contributed his or her first journal on or after September 2, 2007.

Whew—you have a lot of IgoUgo contributions to explore. Need some inspiration? Revisit the winners from 2007 and 2006! We’ll reveal your final nominees for 2008 and ask you to choose the winners soon.
