There are many award giving bodies for the best websites, best blogs and best cms like the Weblog Awards, the Webby Awards or Open Source Awards but from what I know there are no specific awards given within the WordPress community to honor the best of the WordPress community. Well, not until now that is. Enter the 2010 WordPress Honors, a brain child of Jared Williams that aims to promote WordPress and to honor the people who have contributed to the WordPress community.
WPHonors is a site based on the same idea as the OscarsÂ® or the Hip Hop Honors Awards but for WordPressÂ®! Anyone, yes even you, can register on this site, and post nominees for the different areas you see showcased on the site. Registered users are also able to vote on each of the nominations, so be sure to get your friends to sign up and vote for you or any submitted posts you may have nominated.
Below are the categories for the 2010 WordPress Honors:
- WordPress Related

- Commercial Plugins
- Free Themes
- Commercial Themes
- Theme Frameworks
- Blog Authors
- WP Community
To nominate or vote for your favorite WordPress blogs, themes, plugins and personalities you have to register at the WordPress Honors website. As a registered member, not only do you get to help pick the winners but you also get a chance to win some awesome prizes like premium WordPress themes, premium WordPress plugins, books and other cool stuff from the sponsors.
