Judges

The Webby Awards is judged by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences (or IADAS, as we affectionately call it).

The International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences was founded in 1998 to help drive the creative, technical, and professional progress of the Internet and evolving forms of interactive media.

In the model of the film, television, and the recording industries, the purposes of The Academy are:

  • To recognize and acknowledge excellence in interactive content across emerging technologies.
  • To connect a diverse group of luminaries to facilitate growth and development in the digital arts and sciences.
  • To educate industry professionals and the public-at-large about what is relevant, making technology accessible and integrating it into the general culture.

You can find a complete list of IADAS members at www.iadas.net

The 28th Annual Webby Awards received nearly 13,000 entries from over 70 countries and all 50 states and generated over 9 billion media impressions worldwide.

Associate Academy members are former Webby winners and nominees and other invited industry professionals who are leaders in their peer groups because of their creative and technical accomplishments. Associate members are invited to take part in Round 1 Judging, the initial phase of the Webby evaluation process.
