2012 Sponsorships

With the Blue Drop Awards, we are doing something brand new for the Drupal community. Many companies have expressed frustration that most people considering Drupal never attend Drupalcamps or Drupalcons. The Blue Drop Awards is an exciting opportunity to reach those buyers.

All year long, your sponsorship will put you in front of new prospects considering Drupal. While the awards are announced in late March, the follow-on podcasts, blogs, PR, and Blue Drop Awards Showcase will feature our sponsors throughout.

We are working to make our sponsors highly visible to give them the ROI they deserve for supporting this community. Many of the Blue Drop Awards organizers have been Drupal sponsors for years and understand the necessity of getting in front of NEW Drupal customers.

If there is anything that we can do to make a sponsorship more appealing to you, please let us know.

Your sponsorship dollars will go towards making this event highly visible in the press, online, socially and in the search engines. Any "profit" will be reinvested back into fostering and promoting Drupal software and the community at large. Read more in our FAQ.

If you are interested in sponsoring, please contact Tim Sharp: tim@bluedropawards.org or (512) 740-9463.

Please note that since Blue Drop Awards is community-voted, you can both sponsor and compete in Blue Drop Awards.
