It’s the fifth edition of the awards, which will be handed out during Baltimore Innovation Week. Winners will be announced Friday, Oct. 6, at the BIW17 Innovation Celebration at Mt. Vernon Marketplace.

The Baltimore Innovation Week awards are an annual online vote highlighting the best in new thinking. (See last year’s winners here) After public nominations, the Technical.ly Baltimore team curates a list of nominees to be voted on by the local tech community — one vote per person. Though candidates can be nominated in multiple years and for different categories, no one can win the same category more than once. The spirit is to welcome in new leaders.

Here are the nominees:
