Entertainment Blog Launches Fans Awards

First there was the furor of reality show, where every week you had a press release or statement about some celeb working on a reality show. Many only had one season, if there were ever picked up, and a lot never materialized. Now there is a new craze, AWARDS. I am not complaining though, because any effort to honor talent and hard-work in this industry is a good thing. Just in; entertainment blog Just Curious has joined the trend and is launching its own awards. 

According to a press release issued yesterday, JUST CURIOUS (an online entertainment blog www.justcurious.co.za ) is delighted to announce its first ever JUST CURIOUS AWARDS 2013, dubbed the JC Awards 13’ set to take place on Sunday, 8th December at an up-market venue in Johannesburg.

The awards are hosted for the first time as a celebration of the blog’s 4th Birthday, as well as to honour the funny and organic moments that have kept the Just Curious online visitors entertained in the past year. The Just Curious Awards include various categories recognizing the awkward, funny and flirtatious moments of the year.

“The JC Awards are all about fun and they are by the people, because the public nominates and they also get to vote for the winners. We’re really just adding a creative way to reflect and look back at the year we’ve had in entertainment, so the awards will look at the stories that shocked us; made us laugh, cry and go TJO!

We are also using this opportunity to thank those who reported on these stories. We’re encouraging the TV producers to keep coming up with great content, the magazines/tabloids to give us even better stories and we’re saying to our celebs: keep embracing social media, look good on the red carpet, and last but not least… We see you!”
says Lelo Boyana, Just Curious Creative Director and Founder.
JUST CURIOUS kicked off the campaign on Monday, 21 October by announcing the Awards on the blog, as well as inviting the fans to submit their nominations for their favourite categories. This will culminate into a final nominee’s announcement in early November, which will then be proceeded by the JC Awards 13 event on Sunday 8TH December 2013.
“Because we know the meaning and definition of the word “Exclusive,” we can confidently say that these awards are nothing like you’ve ever seen before. These categories exclusively belong to JUST CURIOUS and resonate with the JUST CURIOUS users,” adds Boyana.
