The grassroots initiative will spotlight the best-of-the-best in Drupal website development and design.
“We created the Blue Drop Awards to recognize the amazing development work that takes place in the Drupal Community every year,” said Ben Finklea, CEO, Volacci. “We have decided to extend the deadline for submitting nominations to ensure maximum community participation; we want every worthy Drupal project to have a chance to be a part of this.”
Blue Drop Awards organizers are calling on members of the community to nominate and vote on the following categories:

Drupal Website of the Year
The website with the highest overall votes will be named The Drupal Website of the Year.
Representing more than 630,000 contributors and developers, Drupal is the largest, most active open-source technology community in the world. The Blue Drop Awards were created to promote Drupal to the greater technology community and to recognize innovative, next-generation websites and the companies that built them. With thousands of sites leveraging Drupal, the new awards program is designed to be the first democratic, voter-driven recognition program for Drupal members.

Nominations are open through March 22 and can be made by submitting sites for consideration to bluedropawards.org.
Organizers of the Blue Drop Awards are currently seeking additional volunteers to review nominations in order to identify the top 10 in each category.
