Remember the Crunchies, the startup awards we talked about earlier this year that are being organized in partnership with TechCrunch, ReadWriteWeb and VentureBeat? We have an update for you — dates and awards categories — that is currently available at the Crunchies web site.
You can help surface the startups in the categories with which you feel most comfortable by nominating them. Nominations are open through Dec. 13. More specific outlines and fine print are available on this page. Of course, you can also lobby on behalf of your own startup by placing badges on your web site. The finalist voting kicks off Dec. 18, and will run for approximately one month before the awards ceremony, which will be held on Fri., Jan. 18 in San Francisco.

Sweet. Finally one specif for start-ups! I am nominating filmcrave.com for best bootstrapped company.
Much like I said on the Crunchies blog, we appreciate more than a little bit the fact that this is happening. Hopefully this will bring some light to the lesser known start-ups and bring some coverage to some of the cool ideas that they hold.
We at http://www.20dc.com thank you guys again. And if people want to be really cool, they would come on over and check us out and sign on up. If they wanted to be super awesome cool, they would sign up and then nominate us under the, “we have absolutely no money” (Best bootstrapped start-up) category.
Haha. Again, thank you GigaOM for helping to put this on!
I would like to nominate http://www.vois.com
It’s a little ahead of my business plan, but after a couple of days and nights of contemplation I decided that entrepreneurship and innovation are all about calculated risk and timing. I’m all in. http://www.gzyn.com
For folks that simply want to focus on writing good stuff and make some money while at it, GZYN is the place to be. Everything else is taken care of by the system. Take a peek.
Thanks for putting this together.
