The Webbie Awards, hosted in style this year at the Imperial War Museum, have become a traditional feature of the Web Apps Christmas Party. This annual event gives us the opportunity to pay due deference to the people who make Web Applications the fantastic organisation that it is today – the hard workers, the characters and the personalities!
The Awards, hosted by Craig Dean with a host of willing assistants, was conducted with all the excitement and glamour of the Oscars. All winners were awarded an original glass Webbie Award trophy, formulated especially for the 2011 ceremony by our designers, as well as a token gift to reflect the sentiment of their award!
The categories, the valiant nominees and the heroic winners (in red) are as follows:
The Pride of Web Apps Award (The Employee of the Year)
The Directors’ Choice (The employee selected by the Directors for their outstanding contribution)
The Stephen Fry Award (The fountain of knowledge)
The 007 Award (The smoothest operator)
The Apple Award (The person at the forefront of technology)
The Walking Dustbin Award (The person who can and will eat anything)
The Julie Andrews Award (The person most likely to spontaneously burst into a song)
The Huggable Teddy Award (The loveliest person in the office)
The Gordon Burns Award (The person who did a great job in the UGS video interview)
The Nike Award (The person who “just does it”)
Huge congratulations to all our Webbies who, nominated for an award or not, certainly deserve recognition for working as tirelessly as they do!
