WordPress powers 1-in-7 Webby Nominees

WordPress is strongly represented among the 2016 Annual Webby Awards, powering 1 of every 7 nominees in the Website categories. Nominees span 32 of the 48 categories, recognizing websites marketing major financial institutions and web apps, superstar artists and musicians, government projects, and major media and news outlets.

With its intuitive interface, flexible code base, and focus on democratizing content creation, we’re not surprised to see our go-to CMS solution owning such a respectable percentage of the pack. 10up believes in open technology and we’re glad to see platforms such as WordPress in such high use.

If you feel we’ve missed any nominated WordPress sites, let us know on Twitter.

2016 Webby Nominees on WordPress:

Note: These represent 43 out of the 296 nominees in the “General Websites” and “Website Features and Design” primary categories. We did not investigate the nominees in “Online Film & Video,” “Advertising & Media,” “Mobile Sites & Apps,” or “Social.” We identified sites as WordPress-powered by reviewing rendered page source for key WordPress identifiers. If you find evidence of other WordPress sites among the nominees, let us know on Twitter.
