The Webby Awards have been announced (I thought that already happened?), and the winners are presented both in a nice flashy gallery, and on the static full page. There are several companies and services that either won or got the People’s Voice award in their category that should be relevant or known to bloggers, such as Mint (People’s Voice in Banking/Bill Paying category and Financial Services category), Wired (Best Copy/Writing category), Flickr and Digg (Best Practices award and Voice Award respectively, Flickr also won Community in both), The Huffington Post (Blog – Political, both award and People’s Voice), The Escapist (Games-related, both awards), Flock and Facebook (Social Networking, respective award), and so on. I Can Has Cheezburger got People’s Voice in both the Weird and the Humor category.
Congratulations winners! Full list of nominees and winners here.
