Honestly seeing agency founders and creatives beg for votes for the webbys is such a turn-off. Oh so you’re like ADMITTING that this award means nothing and it’s a popularity contest? Tight.

Let’s just admit it. Awards mean nothing until we’re shortlisted for one and need to let everyone on LinkedIn know. And then they mean nothing again once we lose.

I’ve only won awards I guess “passively”, and to date no one has cared and I don’t list them on my site or resume so I feel a wee bit justified, but your comment is a near universal truth hahahahaha

But also in advertising I am not considered a “creative” by many, so I’m sure I’d be scrabbling for votes as an art director.

Isn’t that specific one called the People’s Voice award? The others are decided by judges, you know, like every other award show.

And the work you can vote one is already the top 5 work of a category. Winning a Webby is actually pretty epic, since you compete with most other shit on the internet.

You can check people’s wins out later to see what their competition was.

Any creative agency or agencies employee who begs their friends for votes for the Webbers should probably be laid off immediately. The Webbeys is not a real award.

5 pieces get shortlisted per category. Of those 5 a jury picks one and the people pick one. People’s choice is a shortlist plus and no jury Webby, but a decent effort. Nice for the peeps who get it.

But getting to that top 5 is still pretty hard. And by judging someone’s book - you can always go back to see what it was up against. Which is more scrutiny than most.

A debate happening in another thread that deserves its own post:

The Affirmative: A social post with a straight up headline and visual—in other words, an ad—is a perfectly fine social post. Opinions may differ on the quality of the line and such and such.

The Opposed: Social posts have different creative aspirations, and should be something else. People dont like ads, they like Tik Tok and the like, and we (ad people) shouldnt impose what we think of as “good advertising” on them.
