It’s my pleasure to announce the 2012 BlackBerry Developer Community Awards!
It’s your turn to reward a fellow BlackBerry® developer who writes an awesome blog, always replies on Twitter®, or who has the answer on the BlackBerry Developer Support Forums. The BlackBerry Developer Community Awards is a community-based recognition program that relies on you, the BlackBerry development community.
There are six award categories and we need you to nominate and vote for the developers, evangelists and contributors that exemplify our community’s creativity and collaborative spirit.
Here’s how it works: from now until Sunday September 16th, you can make one nomination per category, either via our online form or Twitter. On Tuesday September 18th, we will announce the finalists in each category.
When the nominees are finalized on the 18th, we will open the platform for voting. Voting will close on Wednesday September 26th. We’ll tally the votes, and will announce the winners live! The ceremony will take place at the BlackBerry® Jam Americas TweetUp, located in the BlackBerry Social Lounge from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.
Here are the categories:
- Must-Follow BlackBerry Developer on Twitter
- Must-Read BlackBerry Developer Blog
- Must-See BlackBerry Developer Evangelist
- Most Helpful BlackBerry Team Member on Twitter
- Most Helpful Contributor to the BlackBerry Developer Forums
- Best Open Source Contribution
Here’s how to nominate:

And here’s the timeline:
- Now – September 16th: Open nominations
