Hark Founder Jeffrey Harkness Judges 23rd Annual Webby Awards



It’s hard to believe we’re already into another season of the Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences (IADAS) presenting the 23rd Annual Webby Awards. For the third year, our founder Jeffrey Harkness will be weighing in on thousands of entries for recognition in outstanding web design, advertising campaigns, media and PR, film and video, mobile apps, social media campaigns, and digital audio podcasts and productions.

Considered the Internet’s most respected symbol of success and its version of the “Academy Awards,” Harkness will be joining a notable list of Webby Award judges coming from a long line of former Webby winners, nominees and other industry experts who have demonstrable expertise in the categories they review. These experts herald from Internet professions across websites, advertising, media and PR, film and video, mobile sites and apps, social and podcasts and digital audio industries. Last year’s awards received over 13,000 entries from all 50 states and 70 countries worldwide.

This year’s nominees were announced on April 2nd, 2019. Last year’s Webby’s received over 13,000 entries from across the US and 70 countries worldwide, including some of the industry’s highest achievements in innovation, design, vision, and technology. This year’s entrants are joining the landscape of past winners like Netflix, The New Yorker, National Geographic, Spotify, Fortnite, Peloton, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Game of Thrones, and HBO NOW.

All entrants compete for The Webby Award (as voted on by IADAS) and The Webby People’s Voice Award (as voted on by fans). Last year, more than 700,000 Internet fans from more than 230 countries and territories around the world cast their votes.
