Vote Now for the 2011 Makeys Winners

We’ve had a great time, this year, seeking out and nominating the most maker-friendly “mainstream” companies to recognize for their outstanding contributions to DIY/DIWO culture. Now, the nominations are closed! The polls are open! Tell your friends, family, and co-workers! Come one, come all, and vote to determine which of our twelve nominees will receive the first ever MAKE Magazine Industry Maker Awards at Maker Faire New York on September 16! The nominees are:

Most Hackable Gadget

Most Repair Friendly

Best Education/Outreach program

Best Product Documentation

You can vote now on the Makeys home page, or at the bottom of this one.

Polls close at 11:59PM PST on September 2, 2011.

Thanks again to all our nominees for going that extra mile. No matter who takes home the trophies, none of them would have been nominated in the first place if they hadn’t already gone above and beyond the norm, in some way, in embracing and inspiring maker culture.

Good luck! See you in New York!
