Mobile Sites & Apps
The Webbys recognizes outstanding mobile sites and apps with awards ranging from best streaming audio or video to best user interface.
Any app that sets an industry standard of excellence through innovation, ease of use, advanced features, and superior design could take home a Webby this year.
Last year’s award for Best Practices went to The New York Times’s mobile app.
The Webby Award has been honoring the best in Social for the past two years. Categories include Culture & Lifestyle, Education & Discovery, Humor, Entertainment, and new for this year, Corporate Communications, and Animals.
In 2013, the inaugural Webby for Overall Social presence went to NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover.
Online Film & Video
Categories in this media type include Animation, Reality, How-to, Travel, Viral, and Experimental & Weird, which is described as video that “shuns narrative, incorporates groundbreaking technology, reflects a fresh perspective and basically avoids conventional description.”
Last year’s Winners include College Humor’s Batman vs The Penguin featuring Patton Oswalt for short form comedy.
Interactive Advertising & Media
The Webby Awards also honors the best in digital advertising. This year’s new categories include Best Use of Data Driven media, Mobile Campaigns, and Best Use of Native Advertising.
