We've spent the past few weeks scoping out South Florida's social media landscape in search of the best of the web. Our eyes are a bit bleary from staring at our computer screens and iPhones, but here it is: our first annual South Florida Web Awards. From the apps you can't live without to the blog you should be reading and the Instagram photos that put South Florida under a toaster filter, we're recognizing those who take the time to digitally document our area.
Now that we've decided on the finalists, you, the reader, let us know who you think should win. You have until October 26 to vote. Winners will be announced at our event, free and open to the public, November 3 at the Green Room in Fort Lauderdale.
What are you waiting for? Put down your smartphone and get to voting.
And don't forget to share with the with everyone on the web with the #sflwebawards hashtag.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
