Today, the J!Oscars, or the first ever global «Joomla Open Source Creative and Artistic Recognition» awards were held held at the J! and Beyond conference in Wiesbaden, Germany.
The event was led by Brian Teeman and Johan Janssens, both co-founders of Joomla!. Brian actually planned to have a Eurovision Song Contest-like voting process. But as there are 27 countries represented here at the moment, it would last all night (just as the ESC) ;)
To the cheers from the crowd, the winners were announced one after eachother. Johan picked one representative from each country to present the awards, which I found was a nice touch.
The winners in each category are:
Web Site Community
Web Site Non-Profit
Web Site Corporate
Web Site Blog
Module or Plugin
Administrator only extension
In addition to these nominated categories there were two additional "Special Awards" for:
Joomla! Innovation of the year
Outstanding personal achievement
