Don’t forget to nominate your favorite startup, founder or VC for a Crunchie award

Stop procrastinating and spend a few minutes to get in your nominations for the annual Crunchies award show. It only takes a few minutes to fill out the form. Nominations will close on Thursday, November 3, 2016 so do it today.

We’re looking for the input of the tech community. Who was the hottest new startup? Who launched the best new technology? Which company had the best launch video? There are 11 categories in all.

This is the 10th anniversary of the Crunchies and we’re thrilled to put the show on again. Like last year, the winners will be decided by a large panel of experts. Called the Crunchies Board, this group includes TechCrunch editors, alongside entrepreneurs, investors and other tech notables, including speakers and judges who have appeared on the Disrupt stage. An independent third-party will administer and tally the ballots, as well as keep the results secret until the awards are announced onstage.

Please head over to the show page and start nominating your favorite candidates in the categories provided. Nominations will close on Thursday, November 3, 2016.

General admission tickets will be available when the show is a bit closer. We’ll see you at the Crunchies!
