Every year, Westword honors the best and brightest minds in the city's digital culture with the Denver Web Awards -- and every year, we add categories to those awards as the digital landscape changes. This year, our biggest new addition had to be Best Instagram Account, for which the competition was both tough and stunning. And true to form, our readers took to Instagram at the ceremony itself, shooting and uploading all angles of the awards and their setting, RedLine gallery, throughout the night using the hashtag #webawards.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
