It was another great year for WebVisions…except for some audio issues on Thursday (which we addressed for Friday), the show went off without a hitch. Much thanks to Kent Derek, our house photographer, for his collection of event pix which were posted on our Flickr account by Eli. Check out the photos from the conference, as well as images from the Webvisionary Awards, Presentation Karaoke and the after parties.

Each year, in conjunction with the WebVisions Conference, the Webvisionary Awards celebrates the most imaginative, daring, and curious talent on the Web by awarding miniature robots to the best of the best.
Submit your work in daring categories: Suck it, HTML5, Fantastic Typographic, All Your Format Are Belong to Us and more. Your work will be judged by robot approved industry experts such as Mark Frauenfelder of BoingBoing.net, Roger Black, Erin Malone, Christian Crumlish, Josh Clark and many others.
For all of the ‘last minuters’, you have a brief reprieve for the Webvisionary Awards – you may submit your project(s) for consideration by Monday, May 11 at 12:00pm Pacific Time. Our rock star judges are standing by, ready to review all of the fabulous submissions, and will send their short list of nominees to be posted on on Friday, May 15th. So, gather your best work and enter it by Monday. But be forewarned: this is our final offer.
The Webvisionary Awards recognizes outstanding work in categories that range from web apps to community sites. But more importantly, it’s a chance to strut your stuff in front of a panel of big-name judges and your peers. The cost is only $25 per entry, so submit your project today and take home some metal for your mantle. Entries will be accepted through May 8th, but don’t wait until the last minute.
The Webvisionary Awards ceremony will be held at the Bagdad Theatre on Thursday, May 21st from 7:30-9:00pm. Join our special guests, play presentation karaoke and more! The awards are sponsored by two of our favorite companies: WebTrends and 52 Ltd.
