The 2nd Annual Golden Kitty Awards are here! A celebration of all the amazing products, makers, and community members. In 2015 we started with 9 categories (see all previous winners here). This year, we added a few more CATegories for a total of 15 Golden Kitty Trophies! ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ† You may vote more than once in a category (if you wish) and we encourage you to explore each collection, which include some gems you may have missed this year. *This year we introduced 2 categories that will be determined using a data-driven approach (without voting): The Maker of the Year Award and Community Member of the Year Award. Excited to share more details about those two awards next week! **My favorite new category includes some of the year's most popular projects built by makers in the community. Vote for the Community Product of the Year ๐Ÿ˜ธ

Seth Louey@sethlouey ยท ๐Ÿ™Œ 2016 PH Maker of the Year Nominee
@nivo0o0 @producthunt @goldenkittymeow I guess I thought that "Community Product" was a product that's community building related. Thought since chatbots are booming that BotList would be nominated at least since it has 1520 upvotes and passed 1.88M page views in 8 months. Thoughts?

@sethlouey BotList would have been an excellent candidate for the Community Product category, but unfortunately we excluded products that had Product Hunt employee as makers =/

@nivo0o0 ah crap... yeah, didn't really think of that since Ben's been gone for 7 months. My bad. Good point.

@nivo0o0 @producthunt @goldenkittymeow what about Books, Games and other products not necessarily in the tech/software realm?
Niv Dror

@nivo0o0 ยท Words @ProductHunt & @AngelList
@jkarmy we had books and games last year but the makers / overall people didn't really get behind them compared to some of the other categories, so we decided to add a couple of more categories instead of those two :)
Juan Antonio Karmy@jkarmy ยท Maker | Engineer | Musician
@nivo0o0 thanks for the update! Although.... isn't that also disincentivizing makers to publish content in those categories: "Ohh, it doesn't get much attention compared to Tech" ?

@nivo0o0 @producthunt @goldenkittymeow what's the rationale for shortlisting bots?
Niv Dror
Maker
@nivo0o0 ยท Words @ProductHunt & @AngelList
@abh1manyu bots were some of the most popular and frequent launches on Product Hunt this year
Abhimanyu Godara@abh1manyu ยท Founder, BOTTR.me
@nivo0o0 was more curious about list of bots than the category itself! ๐Ÿ˜Š Wondering if https://bottr.me has a chance? We were among top 5 hunts of the day and continue to be a popular end to end platform to create a personal bot in one click!

The award looks stunning! ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿ˜ธ I am very curious, how do you nominate products, based on what criteria?
Joshua Pinter@joshuapinter ยท Product at CNTRAL. Maker of ntwrk.
@illya_bakurov I'm curious about this as well. Who suggested the nominations? Was it internal or was it public or to the PH community and I somehow missed it?
Daniel Greenberg@15greenberg
@illya_bakurov as well I would like to know what criteria lead to something being nominated
Niv Dror
Maker
@nivo0o0 ยท Words @ProductHunt & @AngelList
@15greenberg @illya_bakurov @joshuapinter the nominations have been chosen through a mix of community suggestion, data, and PH secret sauce. Now it's up to the community to do the rest! (different than last year tho where it was only based on nominations, which missed a lot of the products)
aj@ajlkn ยท Maker of stuff.
@nivo0o0 @15greenberg @illya_bakurov @joshuapinter Pro tip: the secret sauce is probably La Croix
