More information and context on the Webbys
The Webbys were established in 1996 as an online award show by the internet-themed magazine The Web. The name Webby was modeled on the names of other prominent awards, such as the Emmy. The Webbys were founded with the goal of popularizing and legitimizing the different forms of web-based media, which at the time were not given as much attention as more traditional forms, such as TV, film, and print media. The early success of the Webbys allowed the awards to continue even after the closure of The Web magazine. The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences was formed to continue the awards.
