Webby Awards Emerging With The Industry

Winners in The 12th annual Webby Awards competition have been determined.
With nearly 70 categories, Web Site entries make up the majority of Webby Awards Winners, Nominees and Honorees. According to the Webby Awards, “Some are beautiful to look at and interact with. Others are a testament to usability and functionality. And a handful excel across the board. To be selected among the best is an incredible achievement worthy of praise — and perhaps a little bragging.”
I won’t mention all 70 winners in the Web Site category here, but I will point to a few of interest.
