The 11th Annual Webby Awards are just around the corner, and out of 8,000 nominations in 100+ categories the final nominees have been announced. In the category of Best Automotive Site of the Year, last year's winner, AMG, will be handing over its crown to one of this year's finalists, which include sites for Volvo (C30), Audi (R8), VW (GTI), Toyota (Yaris Driving Experience), and MINI (all things MINI).
Celebrating the best of the best when it comes to all thing digital, mobile and interactive, the Webbys are a product of the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences, with members that include David Bowie, Virgin founder Richard Branson, Simpson's creator Matt Groening, and Anita Roddick, president of The Body Shop.
Winners will be announced on May 1, with the award ceremony held on June 5 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York. Host Rob Corddry, from The Daily Show and Fox's The Winner, will oversee a night of acceptance speeches that are limited to no more than five words. For people who aren't megastars or CEOs, there's even a Webby People's Voice Award where you can vote for your favorite web site in each of the categories until April 27. Click and be counted.
