Sure, TikTok and Twitter may or may not merge, and Facebook's new Instagram Reels sure is a cute enough attempt to compete to provide you with endless pages of copy this week — but what do you say we give Big Tech the media boycott they deserve and get a *real* industry scoop from Hacker Noon's Second Annual Tech Awards?

There are over 200 Hacker Noon Tech Industry Awards and prizes up for grabs this year — not to mention a prize pool of over $10,000 and 3,000+ Years of Domain Registration

In case you've not yet had the pleasure: The 2020 Noonies — presented by hackernoon.com — are not only the only Industry Awards you don't have to be an influencer to win, but also the most community-driven awards on the internet.

There are over 200 Tech Industry Awards and prizes up for grabs this year — not to mention a prize pool valued at over $10,000 — including:

Thank you to TECH Domains for this awards prize, which includes $ 3000 Cash Prize + a Free 10-yr domain for the winner!

Shoutout to Skillsoft for this award's prizes, and the prize for Hacker Noon Contributor of the Year - WOMEN IN TECH, which both include 1 Year FREE Access to Percipio to the Winner.

A huge thanks to Grant for the Web for this award's prize, as well the prizes for Best Web Monetized Digital Artist and Best Web Monetized Blogger, which ALL include: a $1000 award for the eventual winner (!!!)

"Improving on our stack from last year, we’ve built this year’s Noonies on — the now much loved by the whole Hacker Noon dev team — Next.js, and refactored a lot of it to take advantage of the ever-shifting ‘current’ standards of evolving technologies," explains Hacker Noon's lead full-stack developer on the project, Storm Farrell. "The result is a more robust, future-proof and feature-rich 2.0 submission and voting platform."

"It's incredible to see the broader tech community come together — in these unprecedented times — to sponsor big award prizes for top technologists, makers, and creators in tech today," said David Smooke, CEO and Founder of Hacker Noon. "We're excited about the opportunity to recognize and reward the people in our global community who are working to make the internet a better place."

"The *'why'* behind this year's better, bigger, and longer Noonies campaign is to give the community the chance to make sure ***everybody*** who deserves the recognition of being nominated for a Hacker Noon tech industry award this year gets the chance to be included," says Natasha Nel, Hacker Noon's Managing Editor. "I'm looking forward to getting to know all of our 2000+ nominees via hackernoon.com blog interviews, Hacker Noon Podcasts, and our upcoming AMA series."

  • Public Nominations for the 2020 Noonies close on Wednesday, 12 August, and voting will open Thursday, 13 August, 2020. Winners will be announced 13 October, 2020.
