Last month, we announced the Grant For The Web x DEV Community hackathon.

Grant for the Web (GftW) is a collaboration between Mozilla, Creative Commons, and Coil. They are working towards a healthier internet, using open standards to give people more independence and control over how they distribute and monetize content. This effort is deeply aligned with our values at DEV (we’re even Web Monetized now!) and thus the joint hackathon was born.

We sought projects across three categories: Foundational Technology, Creative Catalyst, and Exciting Experiments. More about those categories in the post from last month.

It was incredibly difficult to pick just a handful of winning entries with so many amazing projects to choose from. But after a huge amount of consideration from the DEV and GftW teams, we’re thrilled to share the winning Web Monetization projects!

We’ll be following up with each winner about their prizes soon, and all DEV prizes will be emailed to you within the next two weeks.

Now, please meet the grand prize winners and runners up — and their projects!
