In just over a week voting will close in the FSF Awards 2013 in association with William Hill. More than 125,000 votes have already been cast in the opening two weeks of voting, but there’s time left for you to choose your favourite before voting closes on 6th December.

On the blog this week we’ll give you a brief run-down of all the shortlisted nominees across our ten categories and why they made the shortlist from the hundreds of entries nominated, just in case you had not yet decided who you were going to vote for. To cast your vote, simply head to www.fsf.org.uk/awards.

Voting closes at noon on Friday 6th December, and the winners will be announced at our awards dinner at the Emirates Stadium on the evening Monday 16th December.

Following on from Part 1 and Part 2, Part 3 looks at the Independent Website of the Year and the Newspaper of the Year.

 – Started back in 2002 Arseblog has grown into one of the best club-specific websites around. Its weekly Arsecast podcast and daily columns provoke some top-class debate about the Gunners. The only club-specific entry in this category and well worth its place.

Independent Website of the Year

Arseblog  Started back in 2002 Arseblog has grown into one of the best club-specific websites around. Its weekly Arsecast podcast and daily columns provoke some top-class debate about the Gunners. The only club-specific entry in this category and well worth its place.

Back Page FootballWith coverage of all Europe’s major leagues and a smattering of world football it’s undoubtedly one of the best around. There’s always something worthwhile reading at BPF, not to mention the Hold The Back Page podcast.

In Bed with MaradonaWith its unique visual styling and commitment to quality and esoteric coverage, the hundreds of writers who’ve contributed to IBWM have created a truly stand-out site. Check out “The 100” – its annual look at the next generation of stars from across the globe.

Two Hundred PercentWith unstinting coverage of the lower reaches of the game and a commitment to shining the spotlight on unscrupulous owners, , allied to a growing regular writing staff, Twohundredpercent has cemented its position as one of the voices of sanity in the game.

The Two UnfortunatesUtilising a network of fanzine contributors and bloggers from the Championship down to League Two, TTU provides a level of insight that few can match. A non-partisan paradise, miles away from the usual online bickering, that always has something to say.

Zonal MarkingZonal Marking shows how one man with an idea can turn that into a career. Michael Cox’s site has now become a by-word for outstanding tactical insight, and has led to a raft of media appearances and columns with respected institutions and publications.

Newspaper of the Year

The Daily MailAs controversial as ever, the Daily Mail continues to make waves but its popularity among supporters is evident in its massive sales figures and phenomenal online presence. With the likes Martin Samuel on board, it’s a must-read for many.

The Daily TelegraphWith big hitting columnists Henry Winter and Paul Hayward, to ex-pro insight from the likes of Alan Hansen, the Telegraph’s football columns are brimming with great copy, making its football section indispensible.

The GuardianWith a squad so deep it’d make Sheik Mansour blush, the Grauniad’s writers produce a breadth of copy that never fails to impress. From tactical insight to satirical slight, you simply can’t go wrong with their football section.

The IndependentA host of fresh faces in recent years, from Sam Wallace to Robin Scott-Elliot and Ian Herbert, have reinvigorated the Independent’s football coverage in recent seasons. A great range of truly independent voices.

Sunday MirrorNo red-top better understands the fans than the Sunday Mirror. The paper has backed the FSF’s cause for many years, and its Fans’ Panel gives supporters’ groups a unique platform to rank their rivals.

The TimesA real leviathan, the Times is home to some of the game’s best and brightest. Monday mornings just aren’t the same without a copy of The Game supplement to celebrate (or commiserate) with while dissecting your weekend of football.
