The nominees are out for the 2010 Crunchies awards with contenders like Mark Zuckerberg and Dick Costolo duking it out for the title of CEO of the Year or Quora and Flipboard for Best Startup or Product. Oh, and Groupon is in there too, because you can’t turn down a rumored $6 billion offer from Google without getting noticed. So, in only two weeks we’ll gather at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco to celebrate the 2010 Crunchies Award Winners — but before we do we need you guys to click on over to check out the full list of nominees and vote.
The event will be held on January 21, 2011 at the Palace of Fine Arts. The awards ceremony is at 7:30 pm at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater, after which we’ll hit the Exploratorium for an after party that starts at 9 pm and lasts until 11:30. We’re also using the nominations as a reason to get wild and release a new batch of tickets for the event, so hustle on over to Eventbrite (another nominee) and shell out the $75 to come party with our co-hosts VentureBeat and TechCrunch. We’ve been doing this for four years now, so we know how to throw an exciting party.
So check out the nominees and cast your vote for the 2010 Crunchies Award. Everyone is eligible and encouraged to vote. You may vote once per day, in each of the 20 award categories, until voting closes on January 19, 2011 at 11:59pm PST. We hope to see y’all there.
