The 2008 Crunchies Awards will be a special evening to recognize the best accomplishments on the internet in 2008. As always, we’re grateful to our sponsors who generously make our events possible and accessible to the broader community.

We have several types of sponsorship opportunities available to support the awards agenda, including the opportunity to gift one of our fifteen award categories or to support our red carpet reception.

Please contact Jeanne Logozzo or Heather Harde for additional sponsorship details.
