Hive Awards – Unsung Heroes, Apply Here

hiveawards You know what it’s like … you slave away for weeks or months on end. You put your best thinking, creativity and imagination into it. You wait, anxiously, as it begins to reach its audience … first in ones and twos and then, more. Then it is time for feedback, recognition, reward … only sometimes this last stage doesn’t happen. Well, not for all of us.

If you are one of those “behind the scenes” folks who help build websites, create strategies, engage “users” – then the Hive Awards is for you. Celebrating the unsung heroes of the internet, the Hive Awards:

… are designed to reward all the unsung heroes of the internet: the coders, programmers, user experience designers, content strategists, information architects, planners and the like: the people who innovate and create but rarely get the credit.

You only have a few weeks to get your entry in – so quickly, check out the website and start thinking about your favourite project.

Oh, and the good thing is – the Hive Awards is granular. So it doesn’t matter if the latest MTV promotion got more visits and visibility than your finance site. You are still in with a chance. Get your entries in by January 31.

  1. Thanks for your very kind words about the Hive Awards, Gavin.
    And we have some great news that we are announcing today: Our very first award ceremony ever is going to be a part of the SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas will take place on Friday, March 12th at 8 PM.
    Thanks again Gavin and we are excited to have you and the rest of the Down Under crew – Lucio Ribiero and Ben Bickford – be a part of the Hive Awards.

  2. I love the idea of the Hive awards … but can we also do a Dive awards, celebrating the worst so that we can try and encourage an end to lowest-common-denominator type of ideas?
    We did the ‘smellies’ when cynic first started and it was unbelievably popular, but that was when dinosaurs still roamed the land – so there’s a chance for an award that truly celebrates the good, by also kicking the bad.
    Just a thought.

  3. @Alan – looking forward to hearing more about the awards.
    @Rob – that would be fascinating. Though the number of entries would be astronomical. You’d need a cast of thousands to pick the chaff from the chaff 😉
