Being nominated for a Webby is a huge honor for any web company, but for our small start-up to be nominated two years in a row makes us proud of our work and very grateful to our members who built the supportive community on the site. With our 1,000,000th user-named color projected to be uploaded sometime later this month, we’re happy to report that the love of color is alive and well!
From now through May 1st, you can vote for COLOURlovers in The Webby People’s Voice Awards. Make sure to vote and leave a comment to let people know how wonderful our community is. This nomination is as much for us as it is for you.
Thank you for all your support and color love!
(I know a lot of you are members of StumbleUpon & Flickr, I myself am a loyal member of those sites... but it is hard to win a popularity contest when competing with sites that have millions of members, but you all are the most supportive and awesome members around... so maybe we have a chance.)
About the Webby Awards
Hailed as the "Oscars of the Internet” 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 550-person judging academy whose members include Internet co-inventor Vinton Cerf, R/GA’s Chief Bob Greenberg, "Simpson's" creator Matt Groening, Arianna Huffington, and Harvey Weinstein.
The 12th Annual Webby Awards received nearly 10,000 entries from over 60 countries and all 50 states. Only 15% of the entries were given an official honoree status and an even smaller number were put on the ballots as official nominees.
