The nominations for the 2009 edition of the Crunchies are out — which means it’s time for you to cast your votes for your favorite startup(s). There are 15 categories. The list of nominees includes tiny bootstrap operations such as 12seconds.tv and giants such as Apple (s AAPL) and the 3GiPhone. The Crunchies are a joint effort by us, VentureBeat, Silicon Alley Insider and TechCrunch.
Voting rules: We will count one vote per person per category per day as valid. Voting will end on Monday, Jan. 5 at midnight PST and winners will be announced at the ceremony on Friday, Jan. 9.
Another 200 tickets for the the Crunchies Awards Ceremony and After Party are on sale now. We will release one more round of tickets after New Years and then the ceremony will be sold out. The 2009 Crunchies is being sponsored by Microsoft, MySpace and Founders Fund and several others.
