Voting Is Open for Viacom’s Webby Nominations

by Stuart Winchester, Viacom

Viacom scored 13 nominees for this year’s Webby Awards, appearing across diverse categories – a blend of comedy, kids’ stuff, award shows activations, marketing campaigns, lifestyle programming and more – underscoring the company’s reach across broad demographics. Each of these 13 standouts is eligible for both The Webby Award – chosen by the 2,000-member International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences – and The Webby People’s Voice Award, which fans can vote on here through Thursday, April 19.

The 22nd annual iteration of the best-of-the-internet awards also granted Viacom 14 honoree slots, a sort of honorable mention that positions the activations alongside the vote-eligible finalists.

Click through below to vote for specific Viacom entries. The Webby Awards will announce this year’s honorees on Tuesday, April 24, and will host an award show in New York City on May 14. Fans can stream the show on the Webby website the following morning.
