If you’re like me and you haven’t been invited (again!) then why not watch them live in HD instead.
THE WEBBY AWARDS
The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet. Established in 1996 during the Web’s infancy, The Webbys is presented by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, which includes an Executive 1,000-member body of leading Web experts, business figures, luminaries, visionaries and creative celebrities, and Associate Members who are former Webby Award Winners and Nominees and other Internet professionals.
The Academy is an intellectually diverse organization that includes members such as musicians Beck and David Bowie, Internet inventor Vint Cerf, President & Editor-in-Chief of Huffington Post Media Group Arianna Huffington, Twitter Co-founder Biz Stone, “The Simpsons” creator Matt Groening, foursquare Co-founder Dennis Crowely, Chairman and Founder of R/GA Bob Greenberg, Founder of Flipboard Mike McCue, actress Lisa Kudrow, Co-founder of Thrillist Ben Lerer, and actor Adrian Grenier. Members also include writers and editors from publications such as The New York Times, Wired, Details, Fast Company, Elle, and The Los Angeles Times. The 15th Annual Webby Awards received nearly 10,000 entries from over 60 countries and all 50 states and generated nearly 2 billion media impressions worldwide.
Reflecting the tremendous growth of the Internet as a tool for business and everyday lives, the 16th Annual Webby Awards expands the mission of the Webby by honoring excellence in over 100+ Website, Interactive Advertising & Media, Online Film & Video, and Mobile & App categories.
The Webby Awards presents two honors in every category — The Webby Award and The Webby People’s Voice Award — in each of its four entry types: Websites, Interactive Advertising & Media, Online Film & Video and Mobile & Apps. Members of The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences select the nominees for both awards in each category, as well as the winners of The Webby Awards. However, you, the online community, determine the winners of The People’s Voice by voting for the nominated work that you believe to be the best in each category. Each year, the Webby People’s Voice Awards garners hundreds of thousands of votes from the Web community all over the world.
