The third annual Crunchies awards ceremony, scheduled to be held on Jan. 8, 2010, at the Herbst Theater in San Francisco, is fast approaching. As of now, you can vote for the finalists.

We will once again be co-hosting the Crunchies awards, with VentureBeat and TechCrunch. You can find the photos from last year’s ceremony here.  You can now nominate vote for your favorite entrepreneurs, startups and tech accomplishments for consideration as Crunchies finalists here. You can also find the rules here.

The awards ceremony, on Friday, Jan. 8th at 7:30 pm, will be followed by an after-party at San Francisco’s City Hall’s Grand Rotunda. The Crunchies Committee will select five finalists for each of the 18 award categories. Everyone is eligible and encouraged to vote once per day, per award category, through Wed., January 6th at midnight PST. There are 18 award categories to recognize accomplishments across a variety of fields and roles.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, at noon PST, the first batch of 150 tickets will become available at the Crunchies site. Orchestra seats are $75 and balcony tickets are $45, with both types of tickets good for the after-party. Only 450 tickets are being released to the public, so buy early if you want to attend the ceremony.
