The global web community has voted our public awareness campaign What's The Real Cost as best rich media site from business to costumer of the year.
The project produced by unit9 will be honored at the Webby Awards ceremony hosted by B.J. Novak of NBC’s “The Office” on June 14th in New York City. On June 15th, the ceremony will be broadcasted on youtube.
Hailed as the “Internet’s highest honor” by The New York Times, The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet, including websites, interactive advertising, online film and video, and mobile websites. The Webby Awards is presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, a 650-person judging academy whose members include Martha Stewart, R/GA's Chief Bob Greenberg, David Bowie, Arianna Huffington and Twitter's Biz Stone.
"The Webby Awards honors the very best of the Internet," said David-Michel Davies, executive director of The Webby Awards. "What's The Real Cost's win is a testament to the skill, ingenuity, and vision of its creators."
The 14th Annual Webby Awards received nearly 10,000 entries from over 60 countries and all 50 states. Founded in 1996, The Webby Awards are known worldwide for its famous five-word speech limit. Past Webby Award winners – and their speeches – include Al Gore (“Please don’t recount this vote”), Beastie Boys (“Can anyone fix my computer?”), and Stephen Colbert (“Me. Me. Me. Me. Me.”).
