During this event the keyboard community votes for the best in a number of keyboard related categories. This years the categories are as follow:
- Deskthority awards (super category: person, project, keyboard, switch, ...)
- Best project or innovation (from a company or the community)
- Best keycap or keycaps set (includes artisan caps)
- Best vintage keyboard or relic
How it works
The event is divided into 2 rounds.
Round 1: The nominations. In this round you can suggest nominees for each category. All suggestions will make it to round 2 unless otherwise noted.
Round 2: Vote! Vote for the best in each category.
Vote & win
Final round voters can win various prizes provided by our sponsors. The winners will be selected randomly from the voters in the final round, and will be announced at the end of the event. You need a minimum of 10 posts on Deskthority before the vote ends to be included.
The award winners
Category winners will get a special Deskthority Awards Clack Factory Wingnut Trophkey! DTA winners will be the only people who legitimately receive these keycaps. The Deskthority Award winner will get a golden Wingnut; regular award winners will be awarded silver Wingnuts. If a winner is not a Deskthority member, that winner may not be successfully tracked down and contacted so a Wingnut can be shipped, in that case the Wingnut may be claimed until Sunday 1 July, 2019 by contacting webwit or matt3o at Deskthority.
Please send your nominations in all the 4 categories. You have until Friday 27 November 2018!
