Game demos and startup founders were among the booths at Mt. Vernon Marketplace Friday night as the BIW17 Innovation Celebration put an exclamation point on the weeklong series of events.

The food hall’s vendors provided oysters, poutine and plenty of drinks for attendees as they got caught up and tried video games like Mister Mart.

Then it was time to hand out some awards.

After an open call for nominations, readers voted to select the winners of the 5th Annual Baltimore Innovation Awards. The awards themselves were created by the Station North makerspace Open Works.

Here are the winners:

  • Indie Video Game of the Year: Pure Bang Games, the Highlandtown studio, for development of Zombie Clicker.
  • Tech Mission Org of the Year: Moms as Entrepreneurs, the academy program for mothers seeking to launch businesses which recently announced expansion through a partnership with Etsy and Open Works.
