A Webby Award is an award for excellence on the Internet presented annually by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, a judging body composed of over one thousand industry experts and technology innovators. Categories include websites, advertising & media, online film & video, mobile sites & apps, and social.[1]

Two winners are selected in each category, one by members of The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, and one by the public who cast their votes during Webby People’s Voice voting.[1] Each winner presents a five-word acceptance speech, a trademark of the annual awards show.[2]

Hailed as the "Internet’s highest honor,"[3] the award is one of the older internet-oriented awards, and is associated with the phrase "The Oscars of the Internet."[4][5][6]
