The first annual International WordPress Awards (IWP) have been announced and the creators are looking for members of the WordPress community to vote for the prize categories they think should make up the final set of awards.
Introducing the awards on their website, the creators explained:
“The IWP Awards is a non-profit organisation for the WordPress community, providing a way to recognise and celebrate the highest achievements in our industry. Enabling users to submit their work without cost. The public can freely vote who goes through to the independent judging panel.”
As well as the categories that we will be voting on, the IWP Innovation Prize is also up for grabs. The award is a whopping $30,000, which will be awarded to an ‘outstanding submission that demonstrates excellence beyond any doubt and in turn contributes towards the benefit of mankind through digital innovation’. The prize is set to be judged by an independent panel of WordPress experts.
Head over to the IWP website to find out more about the awards – and don’t forget to vote for your chosen prize categories while you’re there!
