2010 SXSW Web Awards Finalists



2010 SXSW Web Awards Finalists

The finalists for the 13th Annual SXSW Web Awards Finalists presented by Adobe -- all finalists are sites that were launched or completely redesigned in 2009. The winners in each category will be revealed at the SXSW Web Awards Ceremony on Sunday evening, March 14 at the Hilton Austin Downtown. I so wish I could go. :( ALERT: The sites in this list kick ass and I think some of you will be highly impressed with some of the amazing things web designers and developers are doing online nowadays.
