While the world is stayed generally Flickr obsessed, Ipernity has snuck up on the rails. I’ve been a member for a while and I have to say I like it a lot.

First of all, it is a really neat implementation. The UI is neat and makes great use of all the Ajax-y goodness you’d expect from a modern generation site. And especially a photo site.

In addition, there is a really good community feel and, being a European site, has far less of a US feel.

Delighted to see that this week, Ipernity won the best Photo Sharing site prize in the Mashable Open Web Awards.

They have just produced this slideshow widget thing, so to celebrate the award win, I’m sticking it in my blog, showing my latest Ipernity uploads. After all, I did vote quite a few times.
