3QD Arts & Literature Prize 2010 Semifinalists


The voting round of our arts & literature prize (details here) is over. A total of 2010 (odd coincidence, huh?) votes were cast for the 79 nominees (click here for full list of nominees). Thanks to the nominators and the voters for participating.

Carla Goller has designed a “trophy” logo that our top twenty vote-getters may choose to display on their own sites. So here they are, in descending order from the most voted-for:
