ADDED over $3,000 worth of prizes for a lucky chosen few from the people who nominate someone or register a vote and have added a list of the people nominated so far.
Innovation Excellence is looking for the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers.
Do you, or does someone you know, write articles about innovation?
Or do you just have someone that you like to read that writes about innovation, or some of the important adjacencies – trends, consumer psychology, change, leadership, strategy, marketing, management, collaboration, or social media (as they relate to innovation)?
Well, Innovation Excellence is looking to recognize the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers and you can help us find them.
People who nominate someone to be included on the list will be entered into the prize drawings for a range of great prizes (more than $3,000 worth so far), including:
- 1 ticket to the Front End of Innovation Europe (February 27-29, 2012 in Zurich, Switzerland) – $3,000+ value
- 2 signed copies of the five-star book – Stoking Your Innovation Bonfire by Braden Kelley – priceless
- More prizes TBD
Let us know in the comments whether we should reserve some of these prizes for the top couple of vote-receiving authors, or whether the prizes should all be reserved for the people nominating innovation bloggers to the list.

You can submit a nomination either of these two ways:
- Sending us the name of the blogger and the url of their blog by @reply on twitter to @ixchat
