API Receives “Official Honoree” Distinction for 10th Annual Webby Awards

Published 05/05/06

The Webby Awards, the leading international honor for web sites, has recognized www.api4animals.org as an Official Honoree, a distinction that recognizes sites exhibiting remarkable achievement.

“The Webby Awards honors the outstanding web sites that are setting the standards for the Internet,” said Tiffany Shlain, founder and ambassador of The Webby Awards. “API’s Official Honoree selection is a testament to the skill, ingenuity, and vision of its creators.”

“We created our website for the sole purpose of making it easier for anyone who cares about animals to do something positive for them,” said Michelle Thew, API’s Chief Executive Officer. “That our web site has been recognized as something special on the Internet means that the rights of animals will be noticed even more.”

Called the “Oscars of the Internet” by the New York Times, the Webby is the leading international award honoring excellence in Web design, creativity, usability and functionality. Established in 1996, the 10th Annual Webby Awards received over 5,500 entries from all 50 states and over 40 countries worldwide. The Webby Awards are determined by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences, a global organization with a membership that includes more than 500 members consisting of leading experts in a diverse range of fields, such as musician David Bowie, Internet inventor Vinton Cerf, Naked Chef Jamie Oliver, The Body Shop president Anita Roddick, Simpsons creator Matt Groening, Real Networks CEO Rob Glaser, and fashion designer Max Azria.

The 10th Annual Webby Awards received a record number of entries from over 40 countries and all 50 states. Out of the over 5,500 entries submitted, fewer than 20% received this honor and were deemed an Official Honoree. For more information visit www.webbyawards.com.
