If you could picture an Academy Awards for the internet, this would be it. A large collection of nominees, lifetime achievement awards and some of the biggest names in technology and entertainment attending this annual event.

Currently voting is under way for the 18th Webby Awards as nominees are vying for the top in their category as well as the People’s choice awards for 2014. There are some excellent nominees including wired.com, KLM Airlines and the fascinating Melbourne Remote Control Tourist.

You can not only vote for your favourite website but look at the winners and nominees of years gone by all the way back to the “what were we thinking” entries of 1997. If anything this has shown the role of graphic design and user experience has influenced websites over the years.

Have a look around at the nominees or look back at the past winners. One that particularly got my attention was www.ro.me, an interactive short film  from last year with great music and a stunning graphics for a website that takes you on a post-apocalyptic psychedelic trip mixed with bright interactive graphics.

Just so you know, I might feature some of the winners in weeks to come just in case you don’t find the time to explore some of the Internet’s finest.
