Webby Awards Official Honoree

So I'm sifting through my inbox: spam, spam, spam, iTunes receipt, spam, spam, newsletter, spam, spam, notice that one of our web sites has been named a Webby Awards Official Honoree, spam, spam...

Whoa. Back up.

No mistake: the Webby Awards nominees were announced this morning, and is an Official Honoree. Our client, Vancity, is listed alongside names like AOL and Weber Shandwick. Holy cow:

Of the more than 8,000 entries submitted to the 11th Annual Webby Awards, fewer than 15% were distinguished as an Official Honoree. This honor signifies an outstanding caliber of work.

We're walking on air here, of course, and we're pretty proud of what we've achieved. But more credit goes to Vancity, their online visionary William Azaroff, and most importantly the site's moderator Kate Dugas.

And more than to any of us, the real credit ought to go to everyone who's participating in, from the folks who just leave an occasional comment or vote in one of Kate's polls to the regulars whose contributions make the site such a vibrant, inspiring community.

So everyone, take a deep breath and repeat after me: "We'd like to thank the Academy..."
