Q: HOW DO I KNOW IF I’M A WEBBY AWARD WINNER?
A: All Winners are announced on webbyawards.com on Tuesday, April 23, 2019. 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, topical, inspirational, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. A few will be selected to be delivered live at the show on May 13, 2019.
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 email@example.com. These will be assigned to those who cannot make it on Sunday, May 12, 2019.
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 12th at PUBLIC, 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.)
