Forks Over Knives has been nominated for a 2019 Webby Award for best health website. Cast your vote to help us win!
Founded in 1996, the Webby Awards recognize excellence on the internet in dozens of categories, based on criteria such as content, visual design, and overall user experience. The New York Times has called the Webby “the internet’s highest honor.”
Forks Over Knives debuted a completely overhauled website last November with the aim of truly showcasing the breadth and depth of the content and tools we offer online. “We wanted the new design to play up our beautiful food photography, delicious plant-based recipes, expert-authored articles on health and nutrition, inspiring success stories, and more,” says Forks Over Knives Editor in Chief Elizabeth Turner. “Every piece aligns with our mission of changing the way the world thinks about nutrition.”
Nominees were selected by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), a judging body composed of 2,000 industry leaders and experts. “It is an incredible achievement to be selected among the best from the 13,000 entries we received this year,” said Webby Awards Executive Director Claire Graves.
All nominees are eligible for two awards: the Webby, which is selected by committee, and the People’s Voice Webby, which is decided by public voting. (That’s where you come in.)
Voting ends on Thursday, April 18, and the winners will be announced April 23. Actress and comedian Jenny Slate will host the awards ceremony in New York City on May 13.
