The Clamshell Awards - Shortlist

As you may have noticed over the past couple of weeks, I've been running a little project called The Clamshell Awards, in celebration of theme park content creators! The response has been so fab - tons of you have submitted your nominations and over 100 different accounts have been nominated. I've absolutely loved watching you all campaign and share the love - it's great to see from a community that's usually so shady haha!

But yes, tons and tons of entries, that I've had to whittle down to just a few nominees per category. For clarity, the top three accounts with the most nominees per category have been shortlised. And I'd also like to take this moment to thank everybody who nominated me for various categories. I am so iflattered, thank you so much, but for the sake of fairness I have eliminated my own nominations from these categories as it would be pretty weird to win something from my own awards. So, with further ado, the nominees are...
