Nominate Your Clients for the Webby Awards by Friday

The Webby AwardsHave you heard of the Webby Awards? No? Well then: established way back in 1995 when we still used a dial-up modem to access our Prodigy account, the awards were created by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences to honor creative individuals doing great work in the digital field: websites, online ads, videos and all other kinds of content. This year’s deadline for nominations is Friday.

Academy members include Harvey Weinstein, David Bowie and Martha Stewart, and past winners have been as diverse as Björk, YouTube, Stephen Colbert and, for some reason, Jimmy Fallon. Oh and yes, the Webbies were once known as “The Oscars of the Internet.”

This year for the first time, the awards include a suite of social categories to celebrate “the diversity of content, brands and people that use social media as a fundamental component of their identity and communication.”

Sound familiar? If you have a client (or firm) that created a particularly excellent content, marketing, or other social media project this year, it will only take a moment to nominate them. We have a feeling they would appreciate it. But make sure you do it by the deadline this Friday!

Webby Awards Deadline, New Categories Introduced

The deadline for submitting your entry to the 16th annual Webby Awards is next Friday, December 16. The Webbys recognize the best in websites, mobile and apps, interactive advertising and media, and Web video.

This year, The Webbys have introduced a number of new categories including CSR and best editorial writing in the websites category, and best utilities and services (like apps and mobile sites) for handheld devices.

The Webbys will be handed out in the Spring with nominees announced in April. Judging is conducted by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences.

This year, Vogue editor Anna Wintour made quite the splash when she accepted her award.
