How do I know if I’m a Webby Award Winner?

How will you choose which Winners can give speeches on stage? 

There are four ways to make the Webby stage: 

1. Have an awesome idea. Tell us your plans by emailing us at pickme@webbyawards or by tweeting or DMing us @TheWebbyAwards by May 6th.

2. Randomizer. At Webby Official Portrait Day, the Webby Randomizer will select a set of lucky winners to deliver their speech on stage at the show. Only those who attend are eligible. Show up and it could be you

3. Popularity. Winners who received the most votes in this year’s Webby People’s Voice voting will get on stage. If that’s you, we’ll be in touch.

4. Crowdsourced Speeches. Join fellow Winners on Twitter for Webby 5-Word Speech Crowdsourcing Day on Thursday, May 5th and ask followers for help with your #Webby5WordSpeech. What you get back could be awesome enough to land you on stage.

Can I still give a 5-Word Speech if I can’t make it to The Webby Awards Show?

Yes! All Webby Winners have the opportunity to upload and share their 5-Word Speeches as part of a special moment in The Webby Awards Show. Between Tuesday, May 3rd and Monday, May 16th, we encourage you to record and upload your speech in our Winners Gallery. You can record using a smartphone or camera. Speeches should be horizontal, as they will be cropped into a square, so please be mindful.

Learn more about how to record and upload your speech, and where it will live here.

When will I see my 5-Word Speech? 

On Monday, May 16th, all Webby Winners will receive an email with files for your Webby 5-Word Speech, whether pre-recorded or given on-stage, fully optimized for sharing on social, using #Webbys. All speeches will also be uploaded to The Webby Awards YouTube channel following the celebration.

How many people can give a 5-Word Speech?

There is no limit to the amount of people who can record a 5-Word Speech. Just make sure they can all fit in the frame 🙂
