I was looking through some of the nominated websites this morning when I stumbled across the Blue Drop Awards badge on Salon Thairapy's website. Cool! 

To be honest, I haven't been actively looking BUT it is kind of cool to see. 

Are you displaying the BDA badge on your site? Let us know in the comments.

Rule Change Proposed & Finalized

on Mon, 03/12/2012 - 19:03

[Edit: After little comment from the community, and that comment in favor, we've decided to make the rule changes proposed below. Thank you for your support!]

As you can see from our 2012 budget, we have plans to do a lot of marketing for Drupal in the coming year. That means that we need the financial support from companies in the Drupal community who want to see this work done. Many have expressed that they wish to help by sponsoring but they also want to enter the contest.

Nomination Deadline Extended

on Tue, 03/06/2012 - 05:42


D Community,
The Blue Drop Awards Organizing Committee, after very careful consideration, has decided to extend the deadline for nominations through the end of Drupalcon Denver. An official announcement will go out tomorrow morning.
One of the goals that we set early on for the Blue Drop Awards was very high community involvement. After having discussions with many people in the last few days who had not even heard of the event yet, we began to consider an alternative schedule that would give more time for word to spread.


Blue Drop Awards News: Sign up to be notified when: nominations open and close, finalists are announced, voting opens and closes, winners are announced, and other related news about the awards - about 2-3 emails per week. After the contest is over, you will receive a monthly update (but only if there is news to share) with links to interviews, podcasts, and Drupal marketing materials as they become available.

Blue Drop Awards Sponsor Offers: Sign up to receive special, Drupal-related offers from our sponsors. Emails come from Blue Drop Awards so your information will NOT be shared with the sponsors. You will receive no more than 1 per week and only if there is a new, Drupal-related offer available.
