The Webby Awards

Last year, Plank was proud to serve as Webby Ambassador to Canada. In that role, we were assigned the task of raising the profile of the Webbys in Canada, as part of the overall effort of the Webbys to increase their profile worldwide and to make it a truly global event. It was easy, thanks to the support of Webbys staff (shout out to Emily) and the already high profile of the Webbys.

Plank could not have been more thrilled when the Webbys asked us to once again serve as Canadian Ambassador for the 12th Annual Webby Awards. We hope to do even better this year, getting more Canadian companies, agencies and individuals to submit their work. Canada is doing some of the best web work in the world – let’s prove it.

To get you warmed up for the 2008 Webbys, take a look at the awesome highlight reel from the 2007 Awards. I was lucky enough to be there in person, and the highlights really capture the excitement!

Once you’ve watched that, why don’t you submit your work? The call for entries is already open. And by submitting before November 2nd, you’ll get a substantial discount form the normal entry fee. Don’t delay! Do it! NOW!!! Plenty of Canadians were honoured at the Webbys last year, including Montreal-based Wikitravel which was named best travel site. Does your site measure up? Submit and find out.
