Each year, the world’s most outstanding websites and media campaigns compete for The Webby Awards, the leading Internet award honoring excellence in websites, interactive media, social networking, and mobile. Once nominated, the public casts their votes for nominees in order to determine who is the Best of the Web in each category. This year the City of New York received two nominations and three honors — more distinctions than any other city.
In the Best Government Website category is NYC Service, which helped connect over 10,000 New Yorkers with volunteer opportunities in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. The New York Public Library was also nominated in the Best Education & Discovery Website category for it’s innovative community-based digital archiving projects.
The NYC Economic Development Corporation and NYC Office of Film, Theatre, and Broadcasting websites received honors in the Government category, and the NYC Mayor’s Office Twitter were honored in the Public Service & Activism category.
