GRAMMY.com has been awarded Best Media Website Built with Drupal by the Blue Drop Awards in its inaugural season. The awards recognize innovative, progressive and dynamic websites showcasing stellar development work in the open-source content management platform Drupal.
As the official site of Music's Biggest Night, GRAMMY.com is developed in conjunction with Providence, R.I.-based Lullabot. GRAMMY.com has been the exciting online extension of the GRAMMY telecast for more than 16 years now. The site is a growing year-round destination and key content syndication hub for music news, a GRAMMY winners database, blogs, photos, unique performance and interview video such as the 5 Questions With ... series, content from The Recording Academy's vaults, and entertaining features. For the 54th GRAMMY Awards, GRAMMY.com offered a new site design and featured more video, more photos, and a more live and interactive connection to the telecast than ever before. And for the third consecutive year, GRAMMY.com was home to GRAMMY Live — a three-day live video stream of activities leading up to the GRAMMY telecast.
Representing more than 630,000 contributors and developers, Drupal is the most active open-source technology community in the world. The Blue Drop Awards were created to promote Drupal to the greater technology community and to recognize innovative, next-generation websites and the companies that built them. With thousands of sites leveraging Drupal, the new awards program was designed to be the first democratic, voter-driven recognition program for Drupal members.
The inaugural Blue Drop Awards were sponsored by veteran Drupal community members, including Volacci, Phase2 Technology, Lingotek, Standing Cloud, Build a Module, Synaptic Blue, ImageX Media, Achieve Internet, Blink Reaction, Gorton Studios, and Mediacurrent.
