If you're not already a subscriber to PoliticsHome, we've come up with a great way to get a free trial: vote in our inaugural PoliticsHome 2011/12 Awards!
Click HERE, click on the '2-week trial' button and away you go. It's quick and easy and will give you access to the huge array of content that our team puts out every day.
Find out why Number 10, the Labour Party, Lib Dems and MPs and peers - as well as foreign embassies, celebrities, major unions, charities and corporates - are signed up for our innovative 24-7 political news service. We curate hundreds of blogs and Twitter feeds and effectively take the hard work out of keeping up with politics online.
You can see the whole of our ground-breaking PHI Wire at the top of the page (rather than just the five most recent). You can see our Dashboard with full details of speech trasncripts, MPs' quotes from TV, radio and in the House - a round-the-clock service that many at Westminster find invaluable.
You will also get my daily WaughRoom Memo, plus our Breakfast Briefing round-up of the daily papers and other email round-ups that help you catch up on the news even on the move.
As everyone says, once you've tried the full PolHome service, it's too addictive to give up. After your free trial you can either upgrade to our PRO or our On the Go service. There's no obligation either way from the freebie.
The Awards themselves will be presented at a big bash at RICS off Parliament Square on June 18 (put that date in your diary). Full details of all categories can be found HERE, but here's a neat summary of the shortlists:
