It's that time of the year again! When the weather gets nice and the security community gets ... nicer. That time of the year that it gets to highlight the achievements of their peers and provide "constructive feedback" on where things could have been better. After all, isn't dropping 0day the most constructive feedback of all?

Who are we kidding?!? You all know the drill, bring on the noms!

We will accept nominations until Saturday, July 1st, after which the top five nominees in each category will be announced on this website. The winners will be determined by a vote of the Pwnie Award judges while trying frantically to find the room where the awards ceremony will be imminently starting.
