"With all that's going on across the Internet it can be easy to miss the bright spots — so we are especially excited to elevate the companies and individuals who are harnessing the Internet to make great work, inspire people and improve the world,” said Claire Graves, executive director of the Webby Awards. “The 23rd Annual Webby Nominees are leading the charge on creating the kind of Internet we want."
Organizers said the Webby Awards received 13,000 entries from 50 states and 70 countries worldwide this year; fewer than 10 percent were selected as nominees.
