Thanks to all of you who read Catch a Vibe and have voted for us. It’s heart-warming to know that our hard work is appreciated. We took a gamble when we chose to write about culture, as opposed to more popular subjects like music and fashion. We do write about music and fashion, but also about film, books, theatre, dance and visual arts, fields in which black people excel but tend to be overlooked. The choice to focus on the UK – with nods to the US and the diaspora – seemed like another challenge. There’s no denying the US influence on popular culture but it is equally important to acknowledge the talent here in the UK and on the African continent.
We are glad that you, our audience appreciate and value our unique mix of arts, culture and entertainment. We promise to keep up the good and improve however we can. Hopefully this award will give us even more exposure, enabling us to bring you more high profile features and interviews.
Last but not least, thanks to the Black Weblog Awards team and congratulations to all the other nominees and winners!
