An Online Video Recap of the Webby Awards

On Monday we looked at the Streamy awards, today the focus is on the 14th annual Webby awards as they relate to online video.

There were 27 awards handed out yesterday for the category of “Online Film & Video”. The top award of “Film & Video Artist of the Year” was from viral music band OK GO. In case you have been living under a rock and haven’t seen their video “This Too Shall Pass” it’s been embedded below for your viewing pleasure. This is creativity at its best, and that’s what it takes to cut through the millions of videos alive on the Web today, to reach millions of viewers in a short period of time.
