May 27th marked the 15th anniversary of WordPress and a month later, myself and co-host Stuart Morrison of Mister Metric put on a party to celebrate.
WOW, what an event. If you weren’t there, you missed out! We had it all – fine food, plenty to drink, funky music and lots of WordPress goodness to soak up. And of course, no party is complete without a Photo Booth so we just had to get one of those in. It went down a storm and we’ve got lots of silly pictures of you all (to be shared very soon).
There we are few competitions running throughout the night. We had a meme maker competition where attendees could caption 2 of our hubs photos to win a bottle of wine.
But the moment everyone had been waiting for was our website awards ceremony. We asked you lot to send us your websites and winners received a gold medal and box of Thorpe Confectionary chocolates.
Congratulations to all our website winners:

The event was such a success that myself and Stuart have decided to do it again! We’ll be running the competition every month and once a year we’ll have an awards ceremony and party! Wahoo! Watch this space for ‘The Bizzies’ website launch.
