The nominations for the 13th Annual Webby Awards were recently announced, and they include a number of sites built in Drupal! Presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, the Webby Award is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet. Itâ€™s like the Oscars for websites.
In addition to the juried awards, which are decided by a 650-person judging academy whose members include Internet co-inventor Vinton Cerf, R/GAâ€™s Chief Bob Greenberg, â€œSimpsonsâ€ creator Matt Groening, Arianna Huffington, and Harvey Weinstein, all nominees are also eligible to win a Webby Peopleâ€™s Voice Award, which is voted online by the global Web community.
This is where you come in! From now until April 30th, you can cast your vote at http://pv.webbyawards.com â€“ this is a great opportunity for the community to come out, show their support, and get out the word that some of the best sites in the world are powered by Drupal. Weâ€™ve created a list of all the known Drupal sites sorted by the category in which they were nominated below; please let us know in the comments if weâ€™ve missed any.
Winners will be announced on May 5th, 2009 and honored at a star-studded ceremony in New York City on June 8th hosted by Seth Meyers.
