The Webby Awards and YouTube are joining forces for this year’s awards show.
Saturday Night Live’s Seth Meyers will host the 13th annual awards show on June 8. The next day, the official Webby Awards YouTube Channel will showcase dozens of short video moments from the evening’s festivities, including clips of every winner’s five-word acceptance speech, celebrity interviews from the red carpete, scenes from the 2009 Webby Award-winning videos. The channel will also enable all winners to link directly to and promote their individual 5-word speech video.
WebNewser will be downtown to cover the Webby Awards. So look for coverage here, and on the Webby’s YouTube Channel.
