Winners will be announced on June 28 at a ceremony in Dana Point CA. Details soon!
Any funds received that are above and beyond expenses will go to the DomainersChoiceScholarshipFund.com. Details about this non profit 501c3 organization will be available soon.
I think its a really cool thing that Donna Mahony is doing and she is doing it the right way imo, using an outside third party.
Domaining is still small compared to many industries, many larger fields have award ceremonies and of course in some fields they are a very big deal. I think as any industry grows and wants credibility and recognition for their participants, you need to have a system in place that is set up professionally and Donna has done that with the Domainers Choice Awards.
The Academy Awards of course has Oscar, maybe we need a vote for The Domainers Choice Awards, I won a Donna or a Namey, Webby is taken.
