Other categories include nominees like One Direction, talkshow host Ellen, Mashable, CNN, The Guardian and NASA. Last year, the famous TED conference won the award in the Event Websites category.
In the lead-up to the 60th Eurovision Song Contest, the EBU decided to commission the creation of an online experience to celebrate the contest's rich legacy. The website brings together stories, photos, videos and statistics.
We are very proud of this nomination, not only because of the acknowledgement of the Academy's members who decide upon the nominees, but also because it is another opportunity to remind millions of people around the world about the Eurovision Song Contest's amazing legacy and its distinct public service values, says Jon Ola Sand, Executive Supervisor of the Contest on behalf of the EBU.
The EBU commissioned Scrn to manage the project and produce the content, in close collaboration with technical partner Elespacio. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Webby Awards.
