Pro Tips for Entering The Webbys

Don’t lose your work! You will automatically be prompted to set up an account when you submit 5 or more entries and we highly recommend you do.
Setting up an account allows you to keep tabs on your work and payment history and the entry site will keep your work in the cache in case you accidentally close your browser.
You’ll notice that while entering, you are prompted to submit “Your Role”. Why do we ask this? It is so we can credit you properly in our Winners Gallery if you win.
So, what then are the distinctions between the Agency, Internal and PR roles when entering The Webbys?
– Agency work is made on the behalf of a client.
– Internal work is used by the company or brand which created it.
– PR firms submit work for the clients they represent.
Our expert producer Denise Gilley is here to
help with all of your entry-related queries and concerns. Here are her top tips on entry best practices. We asked so you didn’t have to.
– Your Work: A Twitter account is not required, but should your work be nominated (and thus eligible to participate in the Webby People’s Voice Award), we can promote your success via Twitter. –
Campaign Entries: I recommend that entrants setup and submit a non-branded landing page with project details, case study video, marketing results/stats, etc. along with a link(s) to the actual elements of the campaign. –
Mobile Sites & Apps: For subscription-based apps or sites, I recommend that you provide a guest login for our judges. It is helpful to provide our judges with the opportunity to fully experience the work.
Of course, please don’t hesitate to contact Denise via email at
firstname.lastname@example.org or at (212) 675-3555, if you have any questions or hesitations about entering.
