This year in a unique partnership with (RED), The Webby Awards is proud to present a Special Achievement award for the outstanding use of innovative technology for social good. The (RED) Webby Award recognizes an organization that uses an online platform to affect change in the real world.
The (RED) Webby Award is being given to Ushahidi in recognition of its incomparable use of open source software as a tool to promote social activism. Ushahidi’s unparalleled use of social media and interactive mapping has not only provided useful information in emergency efforts like the Haitian earthquake but has also empowered many by democratizing information and increasing transparency.
