My, my, my how time flies. It seems like just last year I was badgering you guys to submit your entries to the Webvisionary Awards 2010. And now? That’s right. I’m badgering you to submit your entries to the Webvisionary Awards 2011.
It’s Thursday, kids. So park your fannie in front of your machine and revel in yet another thrilling episode of memePDX. Or put it on your little mobile device thingee. Whatever. Either way.
This week, Cami Kaos and I discuss a whole boatload of Portland techie award opportunities, Urban Airship powers Interscope Records push notifications, the PDX Open Source GIS Unconference, Twitter for the iPhone, and the new Twitter “sponsored tweets” idea. Read More
Now, everyone has an opinion on awards. Some positive. Some negative. But here’s the thing. Everyone—and I do mean everyone—likes to be recognized for their efforts. Especially if it’s by their mentors and peers. And sometimes awards are the best way to formalize that recognition.
And since you already missed the Oscars and I don’t quite think you have the lungs for the Grammy, I found three awards that could very well land you on the red carpet with a statuette: OEN Tom Holce Entrepreneurship Awards, SoMe Awards, and WebVisions Webvisionary Awards. So let’s take a look at how we get you and that statue on speaking terms, shall we? We shall. Read More
Tonight, WebVisions will hold its second Webvisionary Awards, but there’s still some work to do before that takes place: voting for the People’s Choice Award. Or I guess, more appropriately, tweeting for the People’s Choice.
Tweeting? That’s right. All of the votes for the People’s Choice will be cast via Twitter, the popular microblogging platform. Each entry has a short code. Just send a direct message—that’s a d not an @—to @wv09 with that short code and your vote will be counted.
Sad you’re not attending WebVisions? You can still get into the Webvisionary Awards—because it’s open to the public.
So who needs your votes? Read More
There’s a new award in town. Literally. Thanks to the Portland-creative triumvirate of WebVisions, Pop Art and 52 Ltd announcing the Webvisionary Awards, a new award designed to highlight exceptional work online. Winners are to be announced on the first night of the WebVisions 2008 conference.
The first annual Webvisionary Awards is accepting submissions of outstanding work in a range of categories, from mashups and pimped out personal pages to advertising and mobile. Entries must be submitted by April 30th and there will be a fee of $15 per submission.
The categories are extremely broad, so it will be interesting to see where this goes.
- Interactive Campaign
- Technical Achievement
- Web Application
- Educational / Resource
- Pimped Out Personal Page
- Best of Show
And while I’m not much of one for the flash mob mentality, I, for one, think it would be really nice to see some of the cool Portland companies around here get some of the recognition they deserve. Especially given the crowd that WebVisions tends to draw to town.
