Spotify Community Site Awards: The Winners!
Welcome to The Spotties, the first ever Spotify Community Site Awards from The Pansentient League. We’re delighted to say it was an overwhelming success, with thousands of music fans checking out the nominees and voting for their favourite Spotify community sites.
A very big thank you to all of the voters and site owners who participated, and special thanks to Spotify for donating the prizes.
While one or two categories had clear winners, for most it was an incredibly tight race. There were 50 different sites and apps up for a Spottie, and the fact that every single site received at least double-digit votes proves the diversity and depth of Spotify’s community.
