Short-listed for the Webby Awards!
Global X arrived at the office this morning, wondering why he wasn’t in Egypt interviewing social entrepreneurs, when he noticed an e-mail print-out on his door. "Ouh la la!" he said to himself in his best French-accent: "I am short listed for the Webby Awards! Maybe, just maybe, the Global Children will finally be impressed…"
This is what the e-mail said:
Congratulations! This letter serves as your notification that The X-Interviews Hosted by Global X has made the Online Film and Video short list in the Public Service and Activism category in the 13th Annual Webby Awards.
This means that from the thousands of entries submitted during the call for entries, your work faired the best in our reviewing process and will be moving on to the next stage of judging.
Short listed entries are further evaluated by members of the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences for consideration of a Webby Award.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the Webby Awards "celebrate sites that pave important paths to the internet’s next phase."
Global X liked that description: paving important paths? Mais oui!
