The International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences announced its 16th annual Webby Award winners this week, honoring “the best of the web” among internet sites, interactive advertising & media, online film & video and mobile & apps.
Condé Nast’s Wired took the Webby Award for best magazine site, while National Geographic won the People’s Voice award in that same category.
Webby awards are determined by Academy members, including celebrities, business leaders, and Web experts such as Twitter co-founder Biz Stone and Instagram founder Kevin Systrom. People’s Voice winners are selected—among Academy nominees—through public online voting.
