2nd Annual Hacker Noon Awards Launch Today: Public Call for Nominations

Author profile picture

@natashaNatasha Nel

👋 I'm the Managing Editor here at Hacker Noon. I also make podcasts and write stories.

On this hallowed day, one year ago, Hacker Noon 2.0 became a thing on the interwebs. Around the same time, we launched Hacker Noon's annual tech awards, The Noonies—the industry's greenest awards. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ This year, the #Noonies promises to be bigger, better, more diverse, and looooonger than last year. The best part? Anybody can nominate ANYBODY right now for a 2020 #Noonie at noonies.tech!

The 2020 #Noonies are made possible by Amplify Brokerage, a firm launched from the belief that cryptocurrency trading platforms in the market today are taking advantage of traders. Putting people before profits is the ethos of Amplify; and their traders are at the heart of every decision they make. Check out what they have to offer.

One year later, the 2nd annual Noonies is launching with over 100 more awards and quadruple the amount of nominees...

But we want more.

We want to build an awards platform that's really representative of what really matters in tech today.

Which is why public nominations have been extended this year to a full one month period - so that you have more time to think about to share your best in class tech, and we can recognize, celebrate, and reward a more inclusive array of people and products in technology today.

Public Noonies Nominations will be open until August 12, 2020

There are 200+ Noonies Titles up for grabs this year, across five major categories: technology, decentralization, software development, future heroes, and back to the internet.

The Hacker Noon team has chosen 2-10 nominees for each award, many of which come from the Hacker Noon community—and we'll be adding at least 5 more nominees for each award—based on YOUR nominations over the next month.

How to Submit a 2020 #Noonie Nomination
