We’re excited to announce the second annual Sprudgie Awards. We’ve made a few changes in the line-up that we feel better represent what the Sprudgies are all about, including changing certain awards from “Best” to “Notable” or “Favorite”. The Sprudge.com staffs feels that these passionate folks in the industry are making waves, innovating big time and providing global game change across our industry. Thought provoking, hunky, powerful, and fabulous – these are our Sprudgie Awards winners for 2010.
