As they say in their overview:

Media Business issued a call for nominations in the June 8 issue, weekly e-newsletter and the American Business Media Group on LinkedIn. Business media companies put forward more than two dozen Web sites for review in the following categories: IT, trade (non-IT), general business, launch, relaunch, paid subscription, portal, video/multimedia and Web 2.0, which was divided into IT and non-IT categories.
