Congratulations on your Webby Nomination!
Out of the millions of sites, videos, ads, and apps in existence—and the 13,000 that were submitted to win a Webby this year—your work was selected as a Nominee in the 21st Annual Webby Awards. This is a huge, celebration-worthy achievement.
Being nominated for a Webby means you are now eligible to win both The Webby Award chosen by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS); as well as The Webby People’s Voice Award, voted on by the online public. Both awards are seen as international marks of distinction in Internet excellence.
Your nomination is, therefore, an exciting opportunity to create buzz—in the media, for your clients and partners, and with new users. Below are a few resources to help you make the most of this moment:
