The Be2Awards are the world’s first awards for social media in the built environment. Run as part of Be2Camp, the collective of built environment people interested in Web 2.0 (the interactive internet), the awards are crowd sourced, that is, anyone can nominate a project or person for an award, and everyone with an internet connection can vote for the winners.
Nominations have just closed and I’m delighted to say that the ArchitectMap has been nominated in two categories:
My recent project with clients ESI.info has been nominated in the video category.
I’ve also been nominated in a personal capacity both for this blog and for my use of twitter (good to see so many more nominees in this category too). Last year Just Practising won the award for Best Architecture Engineering and Construction Social Media Blog.
The late Mel Starr’s blog, Elemental, has also been nominated this year for Best sustainability or built environment blog.
As the awards are chosen by everyone and not just a cliquey panel, it is especially good to be nominated, let alone to win.
The awards are important to me because they allow us to highlight good work that is being done putting the Internet to work for the construction industry. Please take a look at all the nominees and see what interesting work is going on, and don’t forget to cast your vote!
Voting closes at midnight (BST) on 24 September, and the awards will be presented on 26 September at the Be2Talks in London – find out more about the event and how you can attend here. It isn’t 350 quid either, and you don’t have to wear a penguin suit!
