VLV Updates

Today I received a great email from Kathy Divine who runs the Vegans are Cool website and the Vegan of the Year awards.

She let me know that Viva la Vegan! has won an award for Outstanding Vegan Website for 2013!


The Vegan of the Year Awards belong to the quiet achievers this year. Several people were nominated without their knowledge as they are too humble to ever consider nominating themselves. Luckily, they have friends, fans and admirers who want to share their work with a wider audience. We have included a brief introduction about the Vegan of the Year winners and their websites so you can discover more about these vegan champions.

It is also the year of very young recipients of the Young Vegan of the Year Award: the youngest being four years old and the oldest a mere twelve years old.

The purpose of the Vegan of the Year Awards is to give due recognition to vegans who are doing extraordinary work to promote veganism in the wider community – whether through activities such as activism, running a vegan restaurant or through the media and arts. We also hope the work of the Award winners will inspire others to follow in their brilliant footsteps.

Here's my award:
