Dubbed as the Academy Awards of the internet, the 16th annual Webby Awards were announced recently.
The Webby Awards honor online performers in four different categories: Websites, interactive advertising, online film & video and mobile apps. Again, each category is split into two prizes – The Webby Awards themselves (judged by the International Academy of Arts and Sciences) and The Webby People’s Voice Awards (online voting system).
Further more, Facebook grabbed The People’s Special Achievement Award (for social change), whereas Instagram secured The Webby Breakout of the Year (perhaps owing to its billion dollar acquisition by FB).
What’s your take on the Webby Awards? Expected winners, or did any of the names shock you? Feel free to share your thoughts!
