Moving into its 16th year, the annual event recognizes excellence on the Internet and is presented by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences which includes Web experts, business figures, luminaries, visionaries, creative celebrities, and former Webby Award Winners and Nominees.
In line with Webby Award traditions, winners have the opportunity to deliver a “5-Word Speech” which will be shared on the Webby Awards YouTube channel. Memorable speeches have come from Al Gore “Please don’t recount this vote”, Beastie Boys “Can anyone fix my computer?” and Stephen Colbert “Me. Me. Me. Me. Me.”
