Introducing SNDies 2009 finalists

Posted on

18 hours and 168 projects later, we have finished judging the 2009 SNDies competition. Check out all of the quarterly awards that we judged over the past two days in Joe Weiss’ del.icio.us links. Below is a list of the finalists in each category. Congrats to everyone involved in these projects. I was extremely impressed across the board with the innovation and depth of interactive storytelling. Recognition for Award of Excellence, Silver, Bronze and Gold awards will be announced at the SND 2009 convention in Buenos Aires in late September.
