Annual Drupal Awards Nominations Now Open

on Mon, 04/14/2014 - 18:47

Blue Drop Awards, the independent, nominated, voted event, is pleased to announce that 2014 nominations for new Drupal contributions are now open.

Created in 2012, Blue Drop Awards aims to publicly recognize the excellent individuals, companies and projects that have pushed the limits and maximized the capabilities of Drupal, the open source content management system. In the three years since it started, Blue Drop Awards has grown to 24 different nomination categories.

Drupal projects -- and the people behind them -- are to be nominated by the Drupal community. Finalists are selected by the Blue Drop Awards Nominating Committee based on Drupal Innovation, Use of Drupal Best Practices, Content, Structure & Navigation, Visual Design, Functionality and Overall Experience.

“Drupal has become an extremely useful platform for creating websites that range anywhere from small, personal pages all the way up to large, enterprise sites. We would like to recognize the contributions of the Drupal community for the great work that they have done over the past year,” said Ben Finklea, of Volacci -- Founding Sponsor of the Blue Drop Awards.

Representing more than 630,000 contributors and developers, Drupal is the largest, most active open-source technology community in the world. The Blue Drop Awards were created to promote Drupal to the greater technology community and to recognize innovative, next-generation websites and the companies that built them. With over a million sites leveraging Drupal, the awards program was designed to be the first democratic, voter-driven recognition program for Drupal members.

To Nominate, Sponsor and Volunteer

Nominations open April 7 and can be made by submitting sites for consideration to Open community voting to identify winners in each category will kick-off on May 5 and will last until May 19. Winners will be announced on June 4 at an awards ceremony held at DrupalCon Austin.
