In it to win it!

April 22, 2014

We’re so excited to announce that the Urbanears website is nominated in two categories in this year’s prestigious Webby Awards – for the third time in a row! Can you help us turn this nomination into a hat trick?

We’re up for the People’s Voice Award in the categories of the best Consumer Electronics website and best Mobile & App: Best Visual Design, among other nominees such as The New York Times and The Guggenheim Museum. So if you want to show us some love, click here or here and make your voice heard!

The Webbys are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS) – a 1,000 member judging body that includes Executive Members comprised of leading web experts, business figures, luminaries, visionaries and creative celebrities.

The members select the nominees, however, the online community (note, you) determines the winners of the Webby People’s Voice by voting for the nominated work that they believe to be the best in each category.

Our Stockholm-based web agency Oakwood Creative is to thank for all of this, once again.
