The Internet’s most respected symbol of success, this year’s Webby Awards received 10,000 entries from 60 countries and 50 U.S. states. The Official Honoree distinction is awarded to the top 10 percent of all work entered.
Fellow Honorees in the Youth category include such powerhouses as Disney, Lego, Teen.com, and Nickelodeon.
"We're incredibly honored that Pixton has been selected. It reinforces Pixton as one of the best websites for youth, and that wouldn't be possible without our active, vibrant community", says Clive Goodinson, Creator and Founder of Pixton Comics.
Pixton pushes the limits of creativity on the web by giving anyone the power to create comics, full of original characters with life-like expression and movement. Every element of a comic is controlled with an intuitive click-and-drag motion. Comics can be shared in print as well as across the social web, in browsers, mobile devices, tablets, and interactive whiteboards.
"Kids today want not only to get inside their favorite characters' worlds, they want to actively shape those worlds, in an online social environment,"
Already available in 9 languages, the website is continually growing as Pixton expands its reach to homes, schools, and businesses around the world.
Winners are chosen by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, whose members include such luminaries as David Bowie, Martha Stewart, Darren Aronofsky, Richard Branson, Biz Stone, Vint Cerf, and Arianna Huffington.
