Taken from the Lonely Planet website:

The winners of the awards will be announced in March at a party in San Francisco, at the same time as the first ever Travel Blogger un-conference. Nominations are now open in 13 categories, and will close in mid feb at which point we’ll pick the five most nominated blogs in each category and open those for public voting. Public voting is going to count for 50% of the over-all score, the remaining score will come from a panel of selected experts - respected bloggers, Lonely Planet Authors and other industry celebrities.

Tell your friends and family. Thanks for your votes. :)
