The Webby Awards are also famous for their thank-you speeches in five words: that was the presentation by Rob Reilly and the "5-Word Speech" by DeepL.
The 24th Webby Awards once again honored the best that the internet has to offer on an international level. "The Internet's Highest Honour", (as the New York Times describes it) was bestowed upon our projects this year no less than 14 times. We are happy with the winning projects and say thank you for a Webby, 7 nominations and 6 Honorees!
And the Webby went to: The translation system DeepL in the category “Best Practices”. DeepL enables automatic translations of unprecedented quality through machine learning.
We are also delighted with the nominations and honorees received. The following projects were nominated: DKMS „The Ultimate Limited Edition: Life“ (Mobile Campaign, Public Service & Activism, Integrated Mobile Experience und Best Use of Video), DeepL (Technical Achievement and Machine Learning and Bots), Alexa Cage (Best User Experience) and Bikespector (Best User Experience).
The Honorees went to Alexa Cage (Connected Products & Wearables), DeepL (Web Services & Applications), Motel One – online booking faster than reading this text (Structure and Travel), STIEBEL ELTRON – a comfortable home (Integrated Campaigns) and enso – Slack’s first mindfulness buddy (Productivity).
With the Webby Awards, the "International Academy of the Digital Arts and Sciences" recognizes the best work in the fields of websites, video, interactive advertising, PR, social apps, mobile & voice, games and podcasts. With more than 2000 jury members, the academy is made up of many industry leaders. Two awards are presented in each category - the Webby Awards selected by the jury members. And, in the spirit of an open web, the Webby People's Voice Award, is elected via public voting online. Every year, over 13,000 entries are received from 70 countries.
