Awards season is here, and the Las Vegas’ digerati handed out hardware to the best of the best last night during the Las Vegas Interactive Marketing Association’s 2009 Creative Media Awards.
More than 70 entries competed in eight categories. Additions this year included "Best YouTube channel" and "Best Twitter page."
Here are the winners and links to the goods:
