Introducing the 2013 RFT Web Awards Finalists

Categories: Media, News


The past twelve months was an outstanding time for hot digital action in St. Louis. Our citizens launched apps, pushed pixels, encouraged consumerism and conducted full-on comedy shows in 140 characters or less. If we learned anything, it's that you can't get a job -- or even a date -- without being part of some kind of online or techie... thing.

We at the Riverfront Times like to reward that kind of dedication/sexiness/waste of time. After reviewing the digital efforts throughout 2012 of thousands of local nominees, our panel of esteemed judges determined that the special unicorns below deserve to be finalists. We'll reveal the ultimate winners in each category at an exclusive awards ceremony Jan. 22, followed by a full write-up in the Jan. 24 print edition of the RFT.

Congratulations to all of those named below!
