The 20th Annual Webby Awards, the web’s canonical awards program recognizing the best of the internet, presented their nominees last week. Nominees qualify for two awards: The Webby Award selected by a professional judging body, as well as The Webby People’s Voice Award, selected by an open vote that runs through April 21. Among the many WordPress-powered nominees, several 10up projects are in the running.
Car Sites & Car Culture: MotorTrend.com Redesign
10up partnered with The Enthusiast Network to migrate their network of sites to WordPress, including their flagship publication, Motor Trend. 10up implemented an entirely new design focused on performance, and a new architecture that simplifies the process of sharing content and data across their sites. Other highlights included an interactive car buying tool that calculates a personalized “Real MPG” rating based on a particular vehicle and individual driving habits, and improvements to the online buyer’s guide.

Cultural Institutions: The StoryCorps iOS and Android App
10up partnered with StoryCorps to power the StoryCorps.me app with WordPress, leveraging its brand new JSON REST API and a highly elastic custom hosting infrastructure. Google also featured the app on the Google.com homepage during the Great Thanksgiving Listen. 10up is now supporting their mobile apps, as well.
Congratulations and good luck to all the nominees!
