The results are in, and Cryptomundo has been selected as one of the few “Official Honorees” for a Webby. Here’s the official statement, plus the list of the other winners in our category.
11th Annual Webby Awards Official Honoree Selections
As a result of the superior quantity and quality of sites entered, the 11th Annual Webby Awards recognized sites and teams that demonstrated a standard of excellence.
Of the more than 8,000 entries submitted to the 11th Annual Webby Awards, fewer than 15% were distinguished as an Official Honoree. This honor signifies an outstanding caliber of work. Congratulations to all of our Official Honoree selections!

For several months, Cryptomundo has ranked #1 as the most popular cryptozoology site in the world, beating out, in overall rank by three times, the next most visited site, and by six times, the third ranked cryptozoology site.
The Webby Awards is the preeminent International award for the Internet, honoring the world’s best Websites, Interactive Advertising, Online Film & Video, and Mobile Websites – the Oscars of the Internet, so to speak.
The Webby Awards official definition of the Weird category reads, in part: Sites so forward thinking they seem strange when viewed without the future in mind. This category includes sites that reflect a fresh perspective in thought and action strong enough to start a revolution, change in behavior pattern, or advance old thinking lodged in bad habits.
This, by the way, is not the “People’s Award” part of the Webbys, where people have to encourage their readers to vote. While, of course, that would have been wonderful, as well, we are proud to be honored as we have been. We won the division of the competition juried and awarded by the Webby Awards judges alone.
All of us here at Cryptomundo thank you, our readers, for spreading the word, sharing with us your intelligent comments and reading us.
Winners are asked to write a five-word speech for the acceptance of one of the ultimate awards handed out in June. Just like at the Academy Awards, I already have mine written: “Still covertly cryptic quite overtly!”
