The 2020 edition of the Internet celebration was scheduled for May 11 in New York. It has now been canceled because of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
Another day, another cancellation. The Webby Awards, the event that recognizes the best of the Internet every year, has now been officially canceled because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The show was planned for May 11 in New York. Webby Awards executive director Claire Graves said in a statement, “Despite these changes and the current global environment, we are excited to celebrate this year’s Webby honorees, nominees, and winners. We’ve been working with some of the world’s most creative people and companies to help guide what the Webby Awards will be in 2020, and are excited to unveil our plans soon.”
While the show has been canceled, the nominees will still be announced in the coming weeks, followed by public voting. The team is now looking at solutions to hold the celebrations online and give the winners the chance to still deliver the famous five-word speeches.
