This year’s Webby Awards received a record-setting 13,000 entries from 50 states and 70 countries. Only 9 percent of applicants were selected to become nominees.

The Webby Awards will be celebrating its 21st year at Cipriani Wall Street Monday, May 15.

Webby Awards executive director David-Michel Davies said:

This year’s advertising, media and public relations nominees had an added challenge of creating digital campaigns, advertising and content that would not only capture people’s attention in what was an unusually crowded and contentious, media and advertising environment, but also potentially change perceptions.

As always, our nominees rose to the challenge, and we’re honored to celebrate all of their incredibly thought-provoking, eye-opening and inspiring creative content.

R/GA leads agencies with 13 nominations, and BBDO New York has 10. Droga5, Wieden+Kennedy and McCann New York are also in contention to win Agency of the Year, which is awarded to the agency that performs best across all Webby Award categories.

Below is the full list of nominees, including links to where supporters can vote for their favorite brand, agency or content creator to win. Voting will close at 11:59 p.m. PT April 20.
