2012 Webby Awards

The 16th annual 2012 Webby Awards were held at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on May 21, 2012 and hosted by comedian Patton Oswalt.[1][2] Winners were selected from among roughly 10,000 entries and voting by the public for the People's Choice Award was available prior to April 26th.[3] The awards ceremony was streamed live in HD at www.webbyawards.com.[4]

Newly added to this ceremony were awards for the categories "Mobile Advertising," "Corporate Social Responsibility," and "Best Meme." The "Best Meme" Category represented the first time that there would be no individual credit and no award recipient apart from the meme itself.[5]
