It’s that time of the year again where EDU’s

Golden Item Awards are handed out. For those who don’t know what they

are, the Golden Item Awards are awards that honor amazing Zelda

Community sites for their effort and hard work. In last years GIAs, we

here at ZeldaInformer won the Golden Bomb Plant for most stunning site.

Read on for the winners of this years awards.

Golden Deku Nut for Most Unique Site – Zelda Classic


Classic is a site that has been around for 10 years, and was originally

started to recreate LoZ for computer. After completing this the site

released ZQuest. ZQuest was a guest editor that allowed you to create

your own Zelda levels and even complete fangames! Combine that with a

helpful tutorial and a great community, and it should not be doubted

that Zelda Classic deserved the award this year.

Golden Bomb Plant for Most Stunning Site – Zelda Universe


Year ZU held a donation drive to raise money to hire a professional

designer to completely revamp the look of the site. Needless to say

they were able to raise enough money. The entire design is in 3D, too—images pop out, and scroll bars look as

if they are inside of pillars. I’d say that ZU definitely deserve this


Golden Ocarina for Most Aspiring Site – Zelda Temple


a time when news in the Zelda world comes few and far between, Zelda

Temple still manages to break from the clusters of run-of-the-mill

fansites, with its ever growing content and media sections. If what

they have going at the moment is any sign at all of what the future

holds, this site could emerge as one of the top Zelda fansites around.

If they can continue to work this hard, that is.

Golden Light Arrow for Most Lively Forums – Legends and Adventure


can have the greatest content in the world and the most frequent news

updates in all of the internets, but they’re nothing without a lively

community to fall back on. Wthout one, something just feels empty. This

is not the case over at Legend and Adventure, who have been building a

strong community since 2001.

Golden Mirror Shield for Lifetime Achievement – North Castle


it comes to managing a website, a lot of people start off strong, but

eventually get burned out and watch as their site slowly dies. North

Castle is the complete opposite. They’ve been trudging along since

1997, long before the lot of you were born. And they’re still going

strong today, which is truly astonishing. They’re like the Rolling

Stones of Zelda websites.
