Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish and Lizzo are among many influential artists nominated in the 2020 Webby Awards.
The International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences announced Tuesday morning the complete list of 2020 Webby Award nominees, which spans more than 25 categories.
Nominees can take home a possible two awards; the one they are nominated for and a secondary Webby People’s Voice Award, which is voted by fans. Voting for the People’s Voice Award begins today and concludes at midnight on May 7. Over 4 million ballots were cast to determine last year’s winner, the Academy said.
Since 1996, the Webby Awards have recognized excellence on the internet, including advertising, applications, mobile, websites and video.
For the first time ever the Webby Awards will be held virtually in the midst of a global pandemic. “Given the impact of COVID-19, our concern for the health and well-being of our community, plus measures public officials are taking, we are moving the 24th Annual Webby Awards event, scheduled for May 11th in New York City to an online celebration,” the Academy stated March 19.
Fans can vote for the People’s Voice Award here through May 7. Webby award winners will be announced May 19 with a “special internet celebration later in the day,” according to the Webby Awards website.
Here is a highlight list of nominees. A complete list can be found on the Webby Awards site.
