Why Tuesday? Nominated For Webby Award!
Tuesday, April 8th, 2008
The 12th Annual Webby Awards today nominated us for the Best Political Blog of 2008! Winners will be announced on May 6, 2008 and honored at The 12th Annual Webby Awards in New York City on June 10th. The 12th Annual Webby Awards received nearly 10,000 entries from over 60 countries and all 50 states!
Hailed as the “Oscars of the Internet” by the New York Times, The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet, including Websites, Interactive Advertising, Online Film & Video, and Mobile Websites. The awards are judged by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences, a global organization that includes David Bowie, Virgin Group founder Richard Branson, AKQA Global Creative Director Rei Inamoto, “Simpsons” creator Matt Groening, Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington, Real Networks CEO Rob Glaser, and The Weinstein Company’s Harvey Weinstein.
We are thrilled to be nominated for the Best Political Blog Webby. At a time when the majority of American citizens feel disenfranchised and do not participate in the democratic process, it is clear that our election system needs an upgrade. It is up to all of us to be a megaphone for this issue, and our Webby nomination validates that.
As a Webby nominee, we’re also eligible to win a People’s Voice Award. Voting is open to the public from April 8th to May 1st. All you have to do is register. Here’s where and how to vote:
