Last October, I blogged about the 2010 WordPress Honors, which are awards that are given to honor the best of the WordPress community and at the same time promote WordPress. The concept behind the WordPress Honors or WPHonors was taken from the same idea as the Oscars or Grammy Awards.
The winners of the 2010 WordPress Honors were announced a few days ago and in case you missed it, I’m sharing it with you today. Btw, the initial nominations were submitted by the users/readers and the final round of voting was made by a group of judges.
Best Personal Website – Batman 3D
Best WordPress Related Website – Digging into WordPress
Best Business Website – WPMU DEV
Best Free Plugin – W3 Total Cache
Best Commercial Plugin – Gravity Forms
Best Free Theme – Twenty Ten
Best Commercial Theme – On Demand
Best Theme Framework – Headway Theme
Best WordPress Designer – Jason Schuller
Best WordPress Developer – Joost de Valk
Best Blog Author – Sarah Gooding
Best Community Member – Matt Mullenweg
Although this was all done in friendly community competition, it’s always good to see something like this. An event or award that not only promotes WordPress but also recognizes the effort of the people who contribute a lot to the community and make WordPress what it is. I hope we see more events or activities like these in the future and looking forward to this year’s WordPress Honors.
Anyone here who registered and voted for the 2010 WordPress Honors? Did your nominees win their respective category? What other events or activities should WordPress users do to further promote WordPress? Please share your thoughts.
