Webby nominees announced

Nominees and honorees for the 2007 Webby Awards have been announced, and video figures prominently, as highlighted in the official news release:

From Jumpcut (Best Broadband) and AOL’s (Best Celebrity/Fan) to Steven Voltz’s “The Extreme Diet Coke and Mentos Experiments” (Best Viral) and Mekanism’s “Clearification” (Best Branded Advertising), video innovation is a hallmark of nominees in dozens of categories, confirming why it has become the driving force in a medium which continues to reshape everything from advertising and business to pop culture and politics.

There are nominees in more than 100 categories.

Anyone can vote in more than 70 of the categories after registering at the People’s Voice page (voting closes April 27).

Winners will be announced May 1 in New York City.
