This time next year, ScanMyPhotos.com hopes to win a Webby Award, but for this season, here are several of the current mentions.
Several imaging-related companies recently received a Webby Award. The Webby Awards, international awards honoring excellence on the Internet, are presented by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, a 550-member body of Web experts, business figures, luminaries, visionaries and creative celebrities.
The Webby Awards presents two honors in every category — The Webby Award and The People’s Voice Award — in each of its four entry types: Websites, Interactive Advertising, Online Film & Video and Mobile. Members of The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences select the nominees for both awards in each category, as well as the winners of the Webby Awards. However, the online community determines the winners of The People’s Voice by voting for the nominated work that they believe to be the best in each category.
For the “Best Practices” category, Flickr is the Webby Award winner, beating out Digg.com, Facebook, The New York Times, and Yelp. In the “Best Use of Photography” category the Your Shot – National Geographic Magazinewebsite won the Webby Award, and Pentax Photo Gallery won the People’s Voice award.
