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! 😻🏆 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 😸

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

@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 :)

@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?

@abh1manyu bots were some of the most popular and frequent launches on Product Hunt this year

@nivo0o0 was more curious about list of bots than the category itself! 😊 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!
