The 2011 version of Westword's Denver Web Awards are back again, after a hasty first-run last year. This time, we're introducing new categories to recognize Denver-Boulder's creative and forward-thinking app developers, but have included a few favorites, like Best Shameless Self Promoter and Photo of the Year. Skip ahead to vote in our Denver Web Awards poll now, or read below for more details about this year's party and awards ceremony.
This year, we have forty categories in News/Community, Music, Food & Drink and the Arts.
The winners will be announced at a semi-private party on Wednesday, November 16 at Casselman's Bar & Venue via a multimedia awards ceremony. It's an opportunity to meet like-minded people IRL, talk about memes until they are not funny any longer, and see the faces behind the best of Denver's online community and your favorite mobile applications.

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.
