2011 EPPY Award Finalists

After four weeks of in-depth judging, the E&P team, along with a prestigious panel of 54 judges, has voted and selected the 2011 EPPY™ award finalists.

Each EPPY™ entry is judged on its own merits within a particular category. Finalists must receive a score in the top one third of the average score across all categories within their division (1 million and over unique monthly visitors; 250,000 to 1 million unique monthly visitors; or under 250,000 unique monthly visitors). As a result, there may be no winners in categories not reaching this threshold.

EPPY™ award winners will be announced live on editorandpublisher.com Nov. 30, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. EST.

Congratulations to the finalists of the 16th Annual EPPY Awards.
