The winner of the 2007 Smiley Award is Teonaht.

http://www.frontiernet.net/~scaves/teonaht.html

Most everyone knows Teonaht.  It's Sally Caves's labor of
love that she's been working on just about all her life.  To
hear Sally speak about it--or in it, for that matter--is always
inspirational.  That someone has been able to work with a
single conlang for more than forty years, and to infuse it
with the energy and life that Sally has is nothing short of
amazing.  I hope one day to be able to have a language I've
handled as lovingly as Sally has Teonaht, and I'm very
happy to award the 2007 Smiley Award to it (and her [and
all those winged cats]).

[Note: Originally, I had planned to give out the Smiley on the
first Monday of June every year.  I completely forgot about
this, and instead remembered that I would give out on the first
of July every year (don't know how that happened).  So, from
now on, it'll be the first of July every year (unless I forget again).]
