Announcing our winners

Thank you to the tech community for participating in the first-ever IT Blog Awards, hosted by Cisco. We are thrilled to have received thousands of votes for our 35 finalists – a testament to the excitement in the tech community to recognize these folks for their great contributions throughout the year.



Which blogs are eligible?

Active, independent blogs (please do not submit vendor blogs).

If I write on a platform like Cisco Learning Network, LinkedIn, Medium, or Spiceworks, can I enter my blog?

Yes, as long as our judges can view it.

What do you mean by independent blogs?

We’re not in the business of judging other vendors’ or partners’ blogs. The content you write should reflect your own thoughts.

What subject matter is acceptable?

Are you writing about routers, switches, servers, wireless, programmability? Are you thinking about data centers, NOCs, or SOCs? Does collaboration bring you joy? You’re in the right place.

How are winners selected?

  1. Finalists in each category have been chosen by a panel of judges.
  2. Voting for the top blogs in each category will then open to the broader community.
  3. The final winner will be chosen by the judging panel from the top two finalists in each category.

What can I win?

Finalists and winners will receive a badge for their blog. Winners will also receive a pass to Cisco Live or a comparable prize.
