Don’t know what the Webby Awards are? Well, this really says it all…
“Hailed as the “Oscars of the Internet” by the New York Times, The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet, including Websites, Interactive Advertising, Online Film & Video, and Mobile Websites.”
The Official Honoree distinction is awarded to work that scores in the top 15% of all work entered into the Webby Awards. With nearly 10,000 entries received from all 50 states and over 60 countries, this is an outstanding accomplishment! GFW…Top 15% – That deserves a “WOW…Well done!” don’t you think?
The awards are judged by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences, a global organization that includes David Bowie, Harvey Weinstein, Arianna Huffington, AKQA Global Creative Director Rei Inamoto, Matt Groening, Jamie Oliver, Internet inventor Vinton Cerf, and RealNetworks CEO Rob Glaser.
That’s quite an impressive list of judges. Hmmm…I wonder how many of them golf 🙂
“The Webby Awards honors the outstanding work that is setting the standards for the Internet,” said David-Michel Davies, executive director of The Webby Awards. “Golf For Women’s Official Honoree selection is a testament to the skill, ingenuity, and vision of its creators.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself. I love it when blog posts just write themselves 🙂
Congratulations everyone at GFW! I am so happy for you and I’m honored to be even a tiny part of your blogging team.
