Gamasutra is pleased to announce that, after winning in its category for the past two years running, it has once again been chosen as a finalist for the 12th Annual Webby Awards in the 'Games-Related' category, a significant achievement for the Think Services-run site in the competition that the New York Times calls 'the Oscars of the Internet'. The Webby Awards are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, a 550-person judging academy whose members include Internet co-inventor Vinton Cerf, Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington, "Simpsons" creator Matt Groening, and Harvey Weinstein. Other nominees in the 'Games-Related' category this year are Wired's Game|Life blog, casual site Gamezebo, game culture site The Escapist, and the RockBand.com official community site. As well as the academy-voted choice from the finalists, The Webby Awards also give the global Web community an opportunity to decide who will take home a Webby. Starting today through May 1, the public can cast their votes for a separate public Webby award in the Webby People's Voice Awards site. Winners will be announced on May 6th, 2008 and honored at two ceremonies in New York City: The Webby Film & Video Awards on June 9th and The Webby Awards Gala on June 10th. All winners will take to the stage to deliver their speeches in just five words. Past headline-grabbing speechmakers include Al Gore ("Please don't recount this vote"), Beastie Boys ("Can anyone fix my computer?"), and Prince ("Everything you think is true.")
