The 5th Annual Golden Kitty awards brought a record number of makers together online and offline
Our annual Golden Kitty awards celebrate all the great products that makers have launched throughout the year. This year saw the most votes ever.
On January 28th, we also hosted a Global Meetup Day to make this yearโ€™s awards even more special. Makers across five continents and 35 countries collaborated to successfully host 73 community meetups IRL. I really enjoyed meeting many of you at the LA meetup yesterday. :)
So without further ado, here are this year's Golden Kitty award winners in each of the 23 product categories, as well as two data-driven (non-voting) awards for Community Member of the Year and Maker of the Year. We tallied the votes across each category discounting inauthentic voting behavior.
