Today’s announcement marks the first time the Center for Public Integrity has been nominated for a Webby Award.
Established in 1996, the Webby Awards are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, whose 1,000-plus members include the likes of actor Kevin Spacey, musician David Bowie and journalism entrepreneur Arianna Huffington.
This year’s contest received 12,000 entries from more than 60 countries across dozens of categories.
The Webby Awards presents two honors in every category — a winner selected by the judges and a winner selected by online voters.
In the best political blog category, the Center for Public Integrity is competing against The Atlantic, The Daily Beast, Truthdig and Exit Syria: Diaries from Za’atari, a project of Australia’s Special Broadcasting Service.
Voting in the “People’s Voice” portion of the contest ends on April 24, 2014.
All Webby Award winners will be announced on April 29.
