The Webbie Awards 2011

Jack Simpson

Head of Marketing and Communications

I know it was you, Fredo.

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!
