This Is a Major Achievement: What Does It Mean to Be a Webby Nominee?

As a Webby Nominee, MakeReign’s work has been singled out as one of the five best in the world in its category (it’s among the top 10% 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.

“Nominees like MakeReign are setting the standard for innovation and creativity on the Internet,” said Claire Graves, Executive Director of The Webby Awards. “It is an incredible achievement to be selected among the best from the 13,000 entries we received this year.”

“We are honoured to be nominated for such an award. To be competing on a global level speaks volumes about the concept and execution of our app — we envisioned a journey that makes insurance easy, exciting and accessible.” said Matthew Elan Smith, co-founder of Pineapple Insurance, “We are extremely proud of what has been achieved to date. A huge thank you to our creative partner, MakeReign for helping us achieve a world-class look and feel and a super special thank you to our internal dev team for making the dream work!”

Winners will be announced on Tuesday, May 19, 2020, and honoured in an Internet Celebration on Tuesday, May 19, 2020.
