2024 is off to a great start! And it's all thanks to you and amazing CMX’ers. 

As we were wrapping up 2023, we opened the nominations and voting process for the 2024 CMX Community Industry Awards. We called on you to spotlight outstanding communities and community professionals who poured their heart and soul into making our communities vibrant and supportive—an achievement truly worth celebrating, don't you think?

Our fifth (!!!) annual season of awards started and continued with a bang. We're so thankful to each and every one of you who took the time to first nominate, and then vote. We have determined our three finalists in each category through a combination of public votes and our judging panel submitting their scores (To learn more about how we determine finalists and winners, check out our blog post on the scoring process). 

We are so excited to introduce these finalists today! We will be announcing the winners on January 29th at our “2024 Community Managers Celebration: One Year, Many Communities” event. (Psst, We invite you all to RSVP to the event and come and celebrate with us!) 

And the moment you've been waiting for... We're thrilled to share the final three in each category!
