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 (IADAS) — a 1,000+ member judging body that includes Executive Members comprised 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.
Reflecting the tremendous growth of the Internet as a tool for business and everyday lives, The 18th Annual Webby Awards expanded The Webbys’ mission by honoring excellence in Websites, Interactive Advertising & Media, Online Film & Video, Mobile Sites & Apps, and the Social Web.
The Webby Awards presents two honors in every category — The Webby Award and The Webby People’s Voice Award — in each of its five entry-types: Websites, Interactive Advertising & Media, Online Film & Video, Mobile Sites & Apps, and Social. 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 Webby 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 millions of votes from the Web community all over the world.
