About 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 committee consists of the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), a 1,000+ member judging body that includes Executive Members comprised 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.
"We were ecstatic to just be a part of the Perot project from the beginning and equally as happy to be involved in something so prominent within the Dallas community," said Russel Dubree, Founder of Lifeblue. "Receiving an honorable mention from the Webby Awards is a magnificent milestone that we were only able to achieve from working with such a great client on such a great project."
Honorees in the Cultural Institutions category are selected for recognition based on excellence in the following criteria: content, structure and navigation, visual design, functionality, interactivity and overall experience.
