Announcing The 7th Annual Crunchies Awards

The glitz. The glamour. The nerds. It’s nearly time for the 7th Annual Crunchies Awards, where TechCrunch, Gigaom, and VentureBeat put aside the day-to-day blood sport of blogging and celebrate the best of technology.

As in years past, the collective tech blog community will give awards to the best and brightest startups, founders, investors and thought leaders in our industry. There are 20 Crunchies categories in all, including CEO of the Year and Best New Startup, and nominations are now open.

The award ceremony will take place on Monday, February 10, 2014 at Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco, beginning at 7:30 pm. Davies is an elegant venue that has hosted some of the greatest musical performances in history and now the Crunchies.

Following the awards, the Davies will also provide a festive playground for this year’s after party. As always there will be a hosted bar, hors d’oeuvres, intriguing interactive entertainment and other fun surprises. And tech bloggers.

General admission tickets are now available and start at $80. Seating is very limited and the event tends to sell out quickly. Crunchies nominations close on December 15th at 11:59pm.
