The adoring cheers from the crowd, the uncorked champagne, and the reverential stares from digital hopefuls for years to come.

Such is the recognition garnered by those who win Webbys. Hailed by the New York Times as “the Internet’s highest honor,” The Webby Awards, whose entry deadline is Friday, Jan. 31, recognizes outstanding digital work across all platforms: Websites, Online Film & Video, Interactive Advertising & Media, Social, and Mobile & Apps.

The spoils of a Webby victory extend far beyond recognition from your peers. Last year’s winners received over 2.2 billion media impressions across broadcast, print, online, and social.

Sounds pretty good, right?

If you think you deserve a space in the pantheon of pixels, enter the 18th Annual Webby Awards for your chance to join last year’s winners, who included SoundCloud, Google, Funny or Die, Tumblr, Waze, and Nike.

And now there’s more room at the top. This year’s awards will feature new categories in Mobile and Websites, including City & Urban Innovation, Travel, Health & Fitness, and Productivity.

But hurry — the extended entry deadline is Jan. 31. Don’t miss your last chance.
