“The Washies” is an annual award given to the worst offenders of painting over traditional IT technology with the word cloud, even though it offers little-to-none of the benefits that cloud computing brings.

Just as the Razzies call out Hollywood's duds, this award isn't meant to be mean spirited. It's a way to poke a little fun, and call some attention to this questionable marketing tactic that creates confusion and missed expectations.
Voting began in November and ran though December 12. We collected open responses until Nov. 28. The most popular submissions then became our “nominees” and final voting was held from Dec. 1-12 on this same page. The winners will be announced at an award ceremony on Dec. 14.
Thanks in advance for your participation.  #cloudwashies
