Around the Web: Webby Awards

I’m constantly looking for the latest and greatest in websites.  There are so many creative and brilliant people out there and I try my best to keep up.  One site that I’ve used to keep tabs on the best of the best is the Webby Awards.

The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet. Established in 1996 during the Web's infancy, the Webbys are presented by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, which includes an Executive 750-member body of leading Web experts, business figures, luminaries, visionaries and creative celebrities, and Associate Members who are former Webby Award Winners and Nominees and other Internet professionals.

With nearly 70 categories spanning from fashion to finance, you are sure to find a category that fits your industry.  Why wouldn’t you want to see the sites that were voted “the best of the web?”

Considering that I have clients in lots of different industries, there are lots of categories of interest to me. One that stood out and will probably apply to anyone reading this blog is the Business Blog category. And the 2011 nominees are:
