Backbone and KPMG, with the support of CATAAlliance, present the second annual PICK 20 awards, a round-up of Canada's premier Web 2.0 innovators

This is the only ranking of Canadian Web 2.0 pioneers that we know of.

We're looking for the companies who are leading the way across four implementation categories:

  1. Problem solving: customer response, idea generation, solution brainstorming
  2. Innovation: crowdsourcing, market prediction, participatory feedback
  3. Collaboration: jams, customer input, user rankings
  4. Knowledge sharing and management: teamware, wikis, blogs and collaborative content creation

We need your help.

Is your company using Web 2.0 technology in an innovative way?

Do you know someone who is?

Please visit to complete our nomination form.

Deadline for submission is Monday, March 2, 2009.

We'll announce the winners in Backbone's August/September issue and offer up analysis and insight into what made these companies stand out.

We'll also announce exciting events which will further highlight the best and brightest Web 2.0 practitioners in Canada. Get your nominations in and help us recognize Web 2.0 excellence in Canada.
