Described as the “Internet’s highest honour” by the New York Times, The Webby Awards honour excellence on the Internet, including websites, interactive advertising, online film and video and mobile web sites.
Teenage Cancer Trust, a charity devoted to improving the lives of teenagers and young adults with cancer, took home the Webby for Charitable Organisation/Non-Profit.
The Make It Right Foundation won the Webby awards for Activism. The Foundation was started by actor Brad Pitt to build 150 affordable, green, high-design homes in New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward, a neighbourhood devastated by Hurricane Katrina.
