Exit3a.com Recceives Webby Award
16 April 2005
Winston-Salem, NC — The Webby Awards, the leading international honor for web sites, today recognized Exit3a’s “Take Exit3a.com” as Webby Worthy, a distinction made for the first time this year to recognize sites exhibiting remarkable achievement.
Hailed as the “online Oscars” by Time Magazine, The Webby Awards are determined by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences, a global organization with a membership that includes musician David Bowie, Virgin Group founder Richard Branson, The Body Shop president Anita Roddick, “Simpsons” creator Matt Groening, Real Networks CEO Rob Glaser, and fashion designer Max Azria.
“The Webby Awards honors the outstanding web sites that are setting the standards for the Internet,” said Tiffany Shlain, creative director and founder of The Webby Awards. “Take Exit3a.com” Webby Worthy selection is a testament to the skill, ingenuity, and vision of its creators.”
“I’m almost speechless. Never in this life have I won anything,” said Tom Mullen, writer & proprietor of Exit3a.com
The 9th Annual Webby Awards received a record number of entries from over 40 countries and all 50 states. Out of the over 4,000 entries submitted, fewer than 20% received this honor and were deemed Webby Worthy.
Winners will be announced on May 3, 2005 and will be honored at a gala event in New York’s landmark Gotham Hall on June 6, 2005.
Founded in 1996, The Webby Awards are known worldwide for its famous five-words-or-less acceptance speeches.
