Nominations are in and voting has opened for the 24th annual The Webby Awards, honoring excellence in seven major media types: Websites, Video, Advertising, Media & PR, Social, Apps, Mobile, & Voice, Games and Podcasts. And as ever, animated projects have a strong presence in the year’s most acclaimed new media projects.
“The Internet is our glue right now. It’s the most powerful tool for us to support and uplift one another, and it is no surprise that this year’s Nominees are the companies and people leading the charge,” said Claire Graves, Executive Director of The Webby Awards. “They’ve accelerated their ingenuity, using their platforms to respond to this crisis by innovating, connecting, informing, and helping people all over the world.”
All Nominees are eligible to win the Internet industry’s two most prestigious awards: The Webby Award, selected by the Academy, and The Webby People’s Voice Award, voted on by Internet fans around the world.
Public voting for The Webbys People’s Voice Award is open through Thursday, May 7.
Established in 1996 during the web’s infancy, The Webbys is presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS) — a 2,000+ member judging body. The Academy is composed of Executive Members — leading Web experts, business figures, luminaries, visionaries and creative celebrities — and Associate Members who are former Webby Winners, Nominees and other Internet professionals.
