City Dads Group and several of its members recently received nominations for social media work in the past year from its online parenting peers.
The City Dads Group blog has been nominated for Group or News Blog of the Year for the second straight time in the annual Iris Awards. The Iris Awards honor “the art of parenthood,” according to its organizers.
The following City Dads members also received individual Iris Award nominations:
- Creed Anthony, Indianapolis City Dads – Dad Blog of the Year
- Mitch Chaitin, NYC – Dad Blog of the Year
- Jim Higley, Chicago – Dad Blog of the Year
Six City Dads members also received nods for participating in the #Dads4Kesem walk across England to raise money to start a camp for the children of cancer patients, an effort nominated for Philanthropic Work of the Year. Those members are: Jeff Bogle (Philadelphia), Jason Greene (NYC), Whit Honea (Los Angeles), Michael Moebes (Atlanta), Chris Routly (Portland) and Higley.
The Iris Awards recognize “the finest expressions in art, commentary, commerce, philanthropy, ideas and connections, all the while celebrating the emerging industry created by its pioneers and leaders,” according its website.
Nominations and award winners are determined by votes received from past attendees of the Mom 2.0 Summit and Dad 2.0 Summit parenting conferences. The awards ceremony is scheduled for May 12 in Orlando, Fla., at the 2017 Mom 2.0 conference.
