The Clamshell Awards 2019 - Shortlist

Well, that was exhausting! Another year down, another round of Clamshell Awards nominations in the bag and once again the turn out has been staggering! Hundreds and hundreds of channels nominated and I'm pleased to say we're reaching pastures new with many American channels being nominated which was fantastic to see! And what a brilliant opportunity to get acquainted with so many new and talented theme park content creators - it's been fabulous to see everybody getting involved across social media these past few days. And thank you so, so much to everybody who took the time to submit a nomination, as always the passion that this community shares for supporting each others' content is very heartwarming and wholesome, I enjoy it very much. 

But enough of that, you're here to get the down low on who has made it through to the short list for The Clamshell Awards 2019! Drumroll please...
