From over 13,000 entries worldwide, fewer than 10% were selected as nominees.

This year, the organizations with the highest number of nominations include Condé Nast (27), Google (24), National Geographic (23), The Washington Post (19), BBC (14), HBO (12), Spotify (12), Luminary Media (10), Vox Media (10), NASA (9), Al Jazeera Media Network (7), Comedy Central (7), Tastemade (5), Complex (5), Facebook (4) and Netflix (4).

All nominees are eligible to win the academy-selected Webby Award as well as the Webby People’s Voice Award, which can be voted on at their website until May 7.
