I notice that there are sponsors. Where does the money go?
Sponsorship funds and individual donations are used in the following ways:
- Paying for the expenses related to creating and running Blue Drop Awards. This may include things like awards, trophies, design, hosting, website development, marketing, events and press releases.
- Prizes awarded to the winning websites and the site builders behind them.
- Increasing the awareness of Drupal outside the community. We plan to create marketing materials and an ongoing podcast highlighting winners, finalists and nominees throughout the year. We intend to support the community's efforts represented here: http://drupal.org/node/938474 and here: http://groups.drupal.org/node/173644.
