What was the funniest story of 2012?




2012 Annual NP-LOL Awards opens for voting
NP Humour – the world’s only comedy website devoted to non-profits, fundraising and charity – wants your help in finding the funniest story of 2012. It’s the second annual NP-LOL People’s Choice Awards. There are 14 nominees across two categories. The winners will be chosen in January 2013.

“We’re the only place in the world where non-profits can go to have a laugh. We’ve picked some of our best material from 2012 and are asking our many subscribers and the greater non-profit, fundraising and charity community to help us pick the funniest story,” said NP Humour Editor John C. Suart.

Officially launched in Fall of 2011, NP Humour has grown from just one email subscriber to more than 500 from the US, Canada, the UK and Australia. More than 100,000 people have visited the site in the last year.

Nominees for the two categories, Best Humour Story and Best Humour Animation, were selected by the number of visits each story received at NP Humour. NP Humour’s editors also contributed two “wild card” entries – stories that didn’t get much play, but that should have.

Nominees for Best Humour Story include:

Voting is free, and those who vote will be entered in a contest to win a free prize from the NP Humour Online Store. Voting closes Christmas Day. The winner will be announced in early January.
