This year, we had a large list of content management systems fighting to be in the nominees for Best Open Source CMS and considering how successful this category was last year, it's no surprise we've got a solid list of contenders for the award in 2013.

Last year, Concrete5 took home the People's Choice award but this year, we've got a whole new list of nominees to choose from. Remember, YOU chose this list of nominees and YOU chose who won with your votes. We're just happy that each year, we've got some fresh faces in these nominations.

As a refresher, here's the list of nominees for this year's People's Choice Award for Best Open Source CMS:

  1. MODX
  2. DNN Platform
  3. Liferay
  4. Processwire
  5. e107

And the winner of the 2013 People's Choice Award for Best Open Source CMS won by a huge margin thanks to your votes. The winner is...


MODX is an incredible CMS that offers an abundance of features for those looking for quality software for free. MODX Revolution starts as a completely blank slate.
