RIM Announces The BlackBerry Developer Community Awards

RIM has just announced their 2012 BlackBerry Developer Community Awards. It gives Blackberry users an opportunity to nominate and then vote for their favorite developer. This is a good opportunity for more exposure for a developer. Of course winning would be awesome, having people nominate you and probably looking up and downloading your app is a win too. Any publicity is good publicity, right?

From The Blackberry Dev Blog:

Here’s how it works: from now until Sunday September 16th, you can make one nomination per category, either via our online form or Twitter. On Tuesday September 18th, we will announce the finalists in each category.

When the nominees are finalized on the 18th, we will open the platform for voting. Voting will close on Wednesday September 26th. We’ll tally the votes, and will announce the winners live! The ceremony will take place at the BlackBerry® Jam Americas TweetUp, located in the BlackBerry Social Lounge from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

Here are the categories:

Must-Follow BlackBerry Developer on Twitter
Must-Read BlackBerry Developer Blog
Must-See BlackBerry Developer Evangelist
Most Helpful BlackBerry Team Member on Twitter
Most Helpful Contributor to the BlackBerry Developer Forums
Best Open Source Contribution

Here’s how to nominate:

Through our online form, or
via Twitter. (Just send a tweet that mentions @BlackBerryDev, the #BBDevAwards hashtag, and the category.)

And here’s the timeline:

Now – September 16th: Open nominations
September 18th – September 25th: Open voting
September 26th: Winners announced at BlackBerry Jam Americas TweetUp
