BZTAT in the Shorty Awards


Yesterday, I began asking Twitter followers to support me by nominating me for a Shorty Award in #art. I was in 31st place at the time.

At this writing, I have risen in the ranks, and I am now in 16th place! Thank you so much to those who have nominated me!

I am especially grateful to the “anipals”, or animals who tweet,  a very special group of tweeters who have shown lots of love. The anipals support animal causes on and off of Twitter, and it is for them that I would like to win the award. They have supported my pet portraits on Twitter with great enthusiasm, and I want to win this for them.

It is within reach, but still a long ways off, however. I need to get into the top 5 by Friday.

Please help out by nominating here and by encouraging other tweeters to do the same.

And while you are at it, please nominate a very special anipal, @FrugalDougal, in the #nonprofit category as well. Dougal is the “Chief Dog Officer” of the Paw Pawty, a monthly Twitter event to raise money for animal charities.

Thank you so much for your support!

Shorty Awards–Who is your favorite artist?

I would like to ask those of you who are on Twitter to do a favor for me.

I have been nominated for a “Shorty Award” in art, which is a significant thing in the Twitterverse. The top five finalists get their picture and twitter article on the site, which would be a great thing for this struggling artist and for the Canton Arts District.  Also, there is an awards program in Feb. in New York City.

If you wouldn’t mind, I would really appreciate it if you would go to the Shorty Awards site and give me your vote. My Twitter user name is BZTAT.

I would appreciate it, as well, if you would share with your followers and encourage their vote as well.

Please vote fast, though.  The contest ends Friday!

Twitter has been such a blessing for me in getting my artwork seen all over the world. It would mean a lot to me to receive this award and to share it with all of my new fans and friends. Thank you so much for your support!
