There are a lot of award sites on the internet, but when it comes to the most trusted and widespread nothing comes close to the Webby Awards, which are handed out annually with winners hand-picked by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. The most engaging part for the common internet user is the crowd-powered People’s Voice portion of the Webby Awards.
The Webby People’s Voice honors excellence in 100+ categories including Websites, Interactive Advertising, Online Film & Video and Mobile. Last year, nearly half a million votes were cast and even more comments were posted to mark the biggest turnout in Webby history. And this year we expect even more spirited participation with addition of 25 new categories. [Webby Awards – About]
In 2007 the locally produced environmentally-conscious social networking site ChangeEverything.ca was a Webby Award honoree. They’ve grown over last year and have now been officially nominated for the ‘web award of web awards’, pitted against the likes of Flock, Bebo, Ning, and Facebook.
If you want to make changes – in your own life, in your neighbourhood or in your world – then Change Everything is the site for you. It’s fun, it’s free and it’s a great way to work towards positive change for you and our community.
ChangeEverything is a social networking site that allows you to…
Basically, it’s an online community of change makers, “Some of us are longtime activists; some of us are community leaders; and a lot of us are just regular people with a few ideas for how we’d like to change things.” [ChangeEverything – About].
Using the web community for social change is a noble feat by this homegrown project, which is powered by those who would like to participate in ‘change’. Being nominated for a Webby Award is an excellent accomplishment, anyone and everyone can go here to cast their vote for ChangeEverything.
A big shout out goes to Rob and Alexandra of Social Signal for working with Vancity to make ChangeEverything a very successful reality for Vancouverites, Victoria, and the Lower Mainland.
