Webby Awards – The iPhone and Web sites designed for the iPhone picked up several awards in the Mobile category at the 13th Annual Webby Awards last night in New York. Although well represented among the nominees for Webby and People’s Voice Awards, the iPhone came up empty-handed in several categories where you might have expected it to have won Webby or People’s Voice Awards including Best Use of GPS or Location Technology; Entertainment; Experimental & Innovation; Gaming; and Social Networking.
You can catch several clever videos on YouTube of last night's awards ceremony. Be sure to watch the "five words" segment where award winners are limited to only five-word speeches. Webby Person of the Year Jimmy Fallon's speech: "Thank God Conan got promoted."
And the winners are:
People’s Voice Winner: G4TV Iphone Site
LISTINGS & UPDATES
Webby Award Winner: Navigating Washington - iPhone Application
Webby Award Winner: Amazon Mobile
Webby Award Winner: NPR iPhone Site
