- The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) announced the finalists of its 19th Annual Codie Awards today. Computing Reviews is a finalist in the Content Industry Category and is competing for Best Online Science/Technology/Medical Information Service with five other finalists.
The Codie Awards were established in 1986 by SIIA and since then have honored the software and information industry's most innovative and forward thinking products and services. A panel of media and expert judges selected this year's finalists from a pool of over 800 nominations from more than 600 companies. Starting in April, SIIA members can cast their votes for 30 days. The winners will then be determined from a combination of first round judge rankings and second round SIIA member votes, and will be announced in May.
