Here are your 2011 Denver #WebAwards finalists
Way back in September, we put out a nomination call for this year's Westword Denver #WebAwards.
After much scrutinizing of those nominations, and with input from staff and a few trusted contributors, we're ready to announce the finalists for this year's #WebAwards.
They're on view below.
We'll announce the winners at an open-to-the-public party on Wednesday, November 16 (a week from tonight) at Casselman's. The details on this party -- which, from what the marketing department tells us, will be "next level" -- are on this handy page. (Sorry, kids, but it's 21 and over. You'll have to stay home and update your Tumblr with more GIFs.)
2011 Judges: Jenny An, Melanie Asmar, Britt Chester, Nick Lucchesi and Kelsey Whipple; with assistance from Dave Herrera, Ru Johnson, Lori Midson, Jonathan Shikes, Laura Shunk and Westword staff and contributors.
