This summer, freelance creatives Josh Weiss and Sunita Deshpande started The Side Show, an awards program exclusively focused on honoring side hustles and projects. More than 500 submissions later, the two have—with the help of a robust judging panel—chosen the inaugural winners.

The pair created The Side Show to celebrate the artistic endeavors and hobbies that creatives often do outside of their day jobs. According to Weiss, the first year was largely a success.

“If I had to guess, I’d say we’ve gotten enough good feedback and results from this one that we will be doing it again,” he said.

In addition to the Best in Show honoree, we’ve rounded up each category winner below.
