Open Web Awards 2007 – Winners

The Winners of the Open Web Awards have been announced.

Due to my moving and connectivity problems I wasn’t able to promote the voting phases but I did vote on the judges choice awards – it is interesting how voting differed between the two.

Category Judges Choice People’s Choice
Mainstream and Large Social Networks
Applications and Widgets
Social News and Social Bookmarking
Social Search
Sports and Fitness ESPN
Photo Sharing
Video Sharing
Start Pages iGoogle
Places and Events
Social Shopping
Mobile Google Maps
For Mobile
Niche and Miscellaneous Social Networks

In some of the more competitive categories such as Widgets and Niche Social Networks, for both the short list of entries into the voting phase, and the final voting, community support was a vital factor, along with the services taking an active role in promoting their nomination.

The final award ceremony will take place at the Open Web Awards live event on January 10th at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco.

Congratulations to all the winners

    I’m rather disappointed that MyBlogLog and StumbleUpon didn’t get any winks. I’ve really come to like those services a lot and I get a large portion of my traffic from those two sites. It’s nice to see that Pandora won out the People’s choice.

    Perhaps more promotion and giving good feedback to MyBlogLog and SU will help them win next year.

    Thanks for the update Andy. Hope the move went well.

    Happy Holidays! :-)

    Pandora snagged the People’s choice and it’s really, really great. Anyway, do not fret too much about the lack of promotion, there’s always a next time. Connectivity problems are still pretty understandable at this day and age. At least you were able to vote on the judges’ choice awards.
