The City of Philadelphia and its residents have been nominated in a variety of categories in the 2011 GovFresh Awards, organized by an two-year-old open government news site of the same name.
As of publishing, Philadelphia is battling with New York City to be named City of the Year, and a variety of city organizations and efforts are mentioned in nearly each of the 20 categories. Both Azavea and ElectNext are nominated in Best Civic Startup. OpenDataPhilly.org is mentioned in multiple categories, including the Best Open Data Platform and the Best Government/Citizen Collaboration.
With a quick email sign up, users are given 10 votes for each category, though they’re allowed just three votes for each option. Voting ends next week, when a judging component will begin.
