Hydraulics & Pneumatics hosted its first Best of Industry Awards at the 2014 IFPE show. These awards were created to help recognize those in the industry that have done a great job evolving to help provide engineers with the critical information they need. New media have taken many forms, so we asked our subscribers to nominate their top choices for best website, social media, blog, online tools and more. Their responses were tabulated, we analyzed the results and selected the winners.

There is one winner for each category, and two runner-ups. Each of the winners were presented with a crytsal award, and the runner-ups received plaques.
