It’s become a part of Spring for us: our client Truthdig has been nominated as a finalist in two categories again this year for the 14th annual Webbies. This makes four years running that they’ve been won or been nominated, and this year it’s again in political blog as well as in the politics category. Not bad, in a competition that sees more than 8,000 entrants a year.
I love it when they get nominated in the Politics category. Perhaps you’ve heard of the other nominees: The BBC, CNN, AOL and FactCheck.org? Truthdig is small, but they do belong in the company of such behemoths; they’re that good. Not that the Political Blog category is a cake walk: Other nominees there are The Atlantic, The Economist, The Huffington Post and The New Yorker.
Congratulations to the Truthdig team, and I hope that this heralds another great year for them!
Oh, and also a quick hat tip to The Tyee, which was a News Webby honoree this year, and tcktcktck, a nominee in the Activism category. Both are Vancouver-based, and congrats to them and their design, development and marketing teams. Any other Vancouver award winners, let us know in the comments!
