9th Annual Webby Awards

Earlier this week, the winners of the 9th Annual Webby Awards, often called the "online Oscars", were feted in New York City.

Awards were handed out in 60 categories – from popular favourites like Community, Fashion, Film, and Politics to new categories making their debut this year, such as Blog, Beauty, Real Estate, Retail, and Social Networking.

The Webby Breakout of the Year Award was handed to Flickr, the photo sharing and management site.

The awards are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, a "global organization dedicated to the creative, technical and professional progress of the Internet". Members of the Academy include musician David Bowie, Virgin Group founder Richard Branson, Real Networks CEO Rob Glaser, Oracle chairman Larry Ellison and fashion designer Max Azria.
