The Tech Industry's Greenest Awards. Public Nominations Are Open. Voting Starts Aug 13.
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 tech 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:
"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.
"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.
