For the 13th straight year, Colle McVoy has been recognized in the Webby Awards. Hailed as the "Internet's highest honor" by The New York Times, the 25th Annual Webby Awards is the leading international awards organization honoring excellence on the Internet.
Colle McVoy and client partner Little Free Library are nominees in the Advertising, Media & PR: Best Cause Related Campaign category for Read in Color, an international initiative to amplify BIPOC and LGBTQ voices and foster understanding, empathy and inclusion for all by delivering diverse books to the Little Free Library book-sharing boxes worldwide. The official listing can be found here.
As a Webby nominee, Read in Color has been singled out as one of the five best in the world in its category (and among the top ten percent of all work entered), and is competing for the Internet’s two most coveted awards: The Webby Award and The Webby People's Voice Award. While The Webby Award is chosen by the Academy, The Webby People’s Voice Award is voted on by the public. Both Awards are a mark of international distinction for Internet excellence.
People can vote here for Colle McVoy and Little Free Library in the 2021 Webby People’s Voice Award from April 20th to midnight on May 6th. Winners will be announced on May 18th and honored at a star-studded, virtual show at the 25th Annual Webby Awards hosted by Jameela Jamil.
Colle McVoy also received recognition as a Webby honoree for the I Got You PSA for Feeding America and the Ad Council in the category Video: Public Service & Activism (Official Listing).
