NPR led pubcasters in the 2009 Webby Awards honoring the best of the Internet. It won a total of seven awards, three of which were determined by votes cast in the “People’s Voice” competition. NPR Music and NPR.org received Webbys and People’s Voice Awards in the categories of music and radio websites, respectively. Awards also went to NPR Mobile, the network’s news site optimized for mobile phones (m.npr.org), NPR Podcasts, and Project Song, a video series presented by NPR Music’s All Songs Considered. Three of the four awards credited to PBS were for Frontline/World programs nominated in the online film and video division. Religion and Ethics Newsweekly, the PBS series produced by New York’s WNET, received the People’s Voice Award for religion websites. The full list of winners is posted here.
