Webby Winners on Flipboard
Inside Flipboard / June 11, 2011
The Webby Awards honor excellence on the Internet, including websites, interactive advertising, and online film and video. We’re proud that several of this year’s winners are our partners, and still more victors look great as a social magazine on Flipboard (see sampling below). We’re also broadcasting the awards on our Facebook page where you can watch the show live and interact with Flipboard throughout the ceremony. Tune in Monday, June 13, at 8 p.m. ET.
