West Coast reprazent! They're taking nominations for the 2005 Photobloggie awards -- click through and make sure our Bay Area photographers and their gorgeous art get some love! (Full disclosure: Our cuddly publisher Jake Dobkin is helping organize the Bloggies and the mothership Gothamist is sponsoring the Best US Photoblog award -- win a shuffle!).

Categories include: best national and international blogs, best writing on a photoblog, best animal photographs, best b/w, best design, best youth, and many, many others -- check 'em out, compare them with the photobloggers we have in our blogroll, give us suggestions in the comments for other Bay Area photobloggers we can check out, and hey, let us know if you get nominated so we can stuff the ballot box in your favor! Bay A---rrreeeee-aaaah!!
