We had a party and tweeted about it: Westword #WebAwards winners!

Categories: Web Awards

If you were there last night, thank you for coming to the first-ever Westword Web Awards party at Casselman's, 2620 Walnut Street. The room swelled (see full slideshow from the Web Awards) to about 400 bloggers, photographers, shameless self-promoters and artists, who tweeted about the thing all night. As promised, below is a full list of winners and top nominees.

Oh, and that wasn't Steve Jobs last night. What's a party without a good prank? But g'hed and tell everybody that's Steve Jobs in the photo with you. The actor was none other than Rand Moritzky. He's available.

There was tweeting under the influence: See more photos from last night's Web Awards.
A full list of nominees is on this quickly made site, done so by one of our fine Web Awards judges, @DigiJeff, a/k/a Jeff Lange.

Best Neighborhood Blog: Unseen
A "street view of Denver presented by locals," the people behind this blog stop take photos of the things we drive or walk by every day: street art, stickers on electric boxes and more. Each post is tagged with a specific neighborhood; it may not come as a surprise but most of the spotted artworks showcased on UD are from Cap Hill.

Best Sports Blog: All things Avs.
Yes, the Denver Post. But in blogging, value is show in things like comments, retweets and Facebook shares, which makes Adrian Dater's Avs blog a prized possession for Avalanche fans.

Best Personal Blog:
"A touching, incredibly well-written blog by a woman whose house has burned down twice -- once at the age of twelve and again in the Four Mile Canyon fire earlier this year. No persona, just enthralling entries from a rare perspective."
Nominees:,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, and

Best Political Blog:
Sustainability to yoga, covers more than just politics and it's updated often, making it a go-to for Denverites with a wide variety of interests.

Best Activism Blog or Site:
(Darren Lyman, president) A "grassroots organization dedicated to ending world hunger," this Englewood-based blog has all the resources available for those looking to lend a hand.
Nominees:,,,,,,,,,, and

Best Sex Blog:
Bracingly honest and humorous talk about the sex lives of real people. It's like having a few totally awesome female friends who always tell it like it is.

Food and Drink:
Best Food Blog: Denver on a Spit
This category received dozens of nominations. But it goes to Denver on a Spit for writer Mark's approachable writing style and his chronicles of eating out in Denver. He also covers closings of restaurants like a reporter writes an obituary, and lastly backs up his words with plenty of food porn.
