It's time for the 2012 edition of Westword's Denver Web Awards, our annual celebration of Denver's greatest digital minds. Back at the end of September, we put out a call for you, dear readers, to nominate your favorite online projects and voices, and a team of Westword staffers and contributors has spent the intervening weeks whittling your suggestions down to our final entries across categories featuring news, arts, food and music. Continue reading to see this year's Denver Web Awards finalists.

We'll announce the winners at a party on Thursday at RedLine. For more about the party, visit our Web Awards site: The night features music from Calder's Revolvers and a series of swag from sponsors, including Odell Brewing Co. and Colorado Cider. (Sorry, kids, but it's 21 and over -- and invitation only. For details on how to get in, visit our Facebook page on Thursday.)
