Here you’ll find answers to frequently asked questions about the 21st Annual Webby Awards ceremony and the awesome events surrounding it.

Q: HOW DO I KNOW IF I’M A WEBBY AWARD WINNER?

A: All Winners are announced on webbyawards.com on Tuesday, April 25, 2017. If you are a Winner, you will be notified directly via email and postal mail. You can also see the full list of winners here.

Q: HOW DO YOU CHOOSE WHICH SPEECHES WILL BE IN THE WEBBY AWARDS SHOW?

A: There are a couple of ways to make the stage at The Webbys to deliver your 5-Word Speech. We’re looking for speeches that show off how much creativity can be packed into only five words. You can be funny, topicalinspirational, outrageous or just about anything else you can think of. The most important part is to be memorable.

If you think your speech has what it takes to be included in the show, email us your idea at pickme@webbyawards.com. A few will be selected to be delivered live at the show on May 15, 2017.

For inspiration, visit our YouTube channel to look through some of the speeches from previous years; and check out our 5-Word Speech Tips resource.

Q: CAN I STILL GIVE A 5-WORD SPEECH IF I CAN’T MAKE IT TO 5-WORD SPEECH DAY?

A: There will be a dedicated slot for some Winners to record their speeches before the show. Please inquire with Emma Whitfield at emma@webbyawards.com. These will be assigned to those who cannot make it on Sunday, May 14, 2017.

Q: DOES IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE IF I’M A WEBBY WINNER VS A PEOPLE’S VOICE WINNER?

A: Not at all. Every Winner is equal at The Webby Awards, and everyone will have a chance to record their 5-Word Speech.

Q: ARE ALL WINNERS INVITED TO THE WEBBY AWARDS CELEBRATION?

A: Absolutely! This night is about YOU. And don’t forget about our opening Sunset Cocktails on Sunday, May 14th at Ramscale Studio, plus the Official Webby Awards After Party at The Highline Ballroom. But note: Tables and ticket packages are sold on a first come, first-served basis and sell out FAST. (See below, and hurry.)

Q: HOW DO I ATTEND THE WEBBY AWARDS SHOW ON MAY 15th?

Every winning organization receives a voucher valued at $595 to put toward table and ticket packages. You can get your table and ticket packages and read all about this year’s show here.
