This Is a Major Achievement: What Does It Mean to Be a Webby Nominee?
As a Webby Nominee, your work has been singled out as one of the five best in the world in its category (and among the top 10% of all work entered) and is competing for the Internet’s two most coveted awards: The Webby Award and The Webby People’s Voice Award. While The Webby Award is chosen by the Academy, The Webby People’s Voice Award is voted on by the public. Both Awards are a mark of international distinction for Internet excellence. Below you will find details on how to launch your Webby People’s Voice campaign and promote your achievement to your organization, clients, and the public.

The Webby People’s Voice Awards: Start Your Campaign Now
While the Academy selects its Webby Winner in each category, every Webby Nominee also contends for a Webby People’s Voice Award as selected by the voting public. Winning either distinction is a mark of international Internet excellence and affords you the opportunity to attend the star-studded 23rd Annual Webby Awards in NYC in May. To maximize your chances of winning, we encourage you to launch a People’s Voice campaign quickly to get your community to the polls. (We’ve assembled some tips on running a successful campaign.) During the voting campaign your work will be seen by a massive online audience: Last year, people cast over 3 million votes from 230+ countries and territories worldwide. Voting for People’s Voice is open from today April 2nd to Thursday, April 18th, at 11:59 PM/PST. VOTE HERE:

Awarding and Next Steps
All Webby Winners will be announced on Tuesday, April 23, 2019, and honored at the 23rd Annual Webby Awards, hosted by actor/comedian Jenny Slate, at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City, on May 13, 2019.

This Is a Big Deal: What Does It Mean to Be a Webby Honoree?
Congratulations! Earning the distinction of Webby Honoree, as recognized by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences is, too, a significant achievement—granted to only the top 20% of all work entered in the 23rd Annual Webby Awards.

On behalf of IADAS and The Webby Awards, congratulations on this outstanding accomplishment for you and your team!
