Tonight, the crème de la crème of the Internet scene will be waltzing down the red carpet at New York's Cipriani Wall Street to be honored at the 13th Annual Webby Awards ceremony. The digital kudosfest — which notoriously limits winners to five word-long acceptance speeches — honors "excellence online" in a mind-numbing 129 categories within four divisions: Web Sites, Interactive Advertising, Online Film & Video and Mobile.

Web Sites:

  • Live Hope Love, by Bluecadet Interactive / Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting (People's Voice Award, Art) This project explores the experiences of people living with HIV in Jamaica through writer Kwame Dawe's poetry, photography and videos. A touching and personable approach to journalism.
