The 12th Annual SXSW Web Awards is now accepting submissions. To qualify, your site needs to be brand new or completely redesigned in 2008, and fit into one of these categories. Get to polishing up that site, because the deadline to enter is December 19.
The cost is $25 per site. You can enter in multiple categories, but you have to pay another fee. The entries are judged on visual design, functionality, interactivity, content, and creativity by “industry peers and experts.” To get an idea of what flies with the hip SXSW crowd, check out last year’s finalists.
And if there’s a name on that list that looks familiar, it might be because Wired.com won last year in the Classic category.
