Trip Journal is pleased to announce today that we have been nominated for Best Travel App in the 15th Annual Webby Awards joining the ranks with fellow nominees, Kayak Mobile, TripIt, Airbnb, and Conde Naste Traveller City Guides. Hailed as the “Internet’s highest honor” by the New York Times, The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet.
“Nominees like Trip Journal are setting the standard for innovation and creativity on the Internet” said David-Michel Davies, executive director of the Webby Awards. “It is an incredible achievement to be selected among the best from the nearly 10,000 entries we received this year.“
As a nominee, Trip Journal is also eligible to win a Webby People’s Voice Award, which is voted online by the global Web community. From now until April 28th, Trip Journal fans can cast their votes in The Webby People’s Voice Awards at http://webby.aol.com/media_types/mobile-web?focused_on_category=885#cat_id_885.
Winners will be announced on May 3rd, 2011 and honored at a star-studded ceremony in New York City on June 13th where they will have an opportunity to deliver one of the Webby’s famous five-word speeches with the world. Past Webby Award winners – and their speeches – include Al Gore (“Please don’t recount this vote.”), Stephen Colbert (“Me. Me. Me. Me. Me.”), and Michel Gondry (“Keyboards are full of germs.”) For a full list of last year’s five-word speeches, please visit: http://www.webbyawards.com/press/speeches.php.
This year, the Webby Awards will also be broadcast live to a global audience through a new partnership with MLB Advanced Media (MLBAM), the interactive division of Major League Baseball. In addition to social media and multiple stream integrations, viewers will have the ability to share in-progress highlights, interact on multiple screens using custom developed mobile phone and tablet apps, and experience a tricked-out video stream that provides not just a front row seat to the ceremony, but also the ability to participate and shape the event as it unfolds.
The Webby Awards is presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, a 650-person judging academy whose members include Internet co-inventor Vinton Cerf, R/GA’s Chief Bob Greenberg, “Simpson’s” creator Matt Groening, Arianna Huffington, and Harvey Weinstein.
