Webby Award Winners (basically the online Oscars) were announced today. A handful of locally based sites were nominated last month, but only a few made the grade. Congrats to all! Here are the winners:
- The Huffington Post walked away with both The People's Voice and official Webby Award.
- The Los Angeles Film School won the Webby Award for Best Homepage/Welcome Page
- Sister to the film school, The Los Angeles Recording School won the Webby Award for best school website.
- Tom Green's House Tonight won the Webby Award for best variety in the Online Film & Video category
And while some of the local nominees did not win, they are definitely worthy of mentioning again in hopes that you'll check them out: Epic-Fu is a great site for fun videos and Why Tuesday? is extremely important in this presidential election year (read LAist's interview with them).
