Your Vote Could Help National Geographic Win a Webby Award

From social media campaigns to virtual reality, National Geographic was busy this past year.

A Webby is a funny-sounding award given for seriously good work.

Brands and media organizations win the award for being excellent on the Internet. The Webby Awards began when the Web was merely an infant, in 1996, and has since come into its own.

In addition to expert storytelling, the awards honor the best in categories like advertising, games, and social media presence.

Each Webby category has two awards—the Webby Award and The Webby's People's Voice Award. A team of 2,000 judges from the International Academy of Digital Arts and Science nominates outlets from each category and picks the winner of the former award.
