Pete Vilmur | June 8, 2009


Joshua Budich, whose “My Star Wars Collection” website hosts 564 images from his personal Star Wars action figure collection, has been awarded both a Webby Award and the People’s Voice Winner in the category of “Personal Web Site” for the 13th Annual Webby Awards!

The Webbies have been recognizing “excellence on the Internet” since 1996, and is comprised of a 550-member body of “leading Web experts, business figures, luminaries, visionaries and creative celebrities,” according to the official website.

Here’s a little more information on the awards themselves:

The Webby Awards presents two honors in every category — The Webby Award and The People’s Voice Award — in each of its four entry types: Websites, Interactive Advertising, Online Film & Video and Mobile. Members of The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences select the nominees for both awards in each category, as well as the winners of the Webby Awards. However, you, the online community, determine the winners of The People’s Voice by voting for the nominated work that you believe to be the best in each category. Each year, the People’s Voice Awards garners hundreds of thousands of votes from the Web community all over the world.

Head on over to the Webby Awards site for a full list of this year’s winners, and also make sure to stop by Joshua’s website to check out the 500-plus figures posted, all accessible from the homepage via a staggering array of tiny 8-bit sprite thumbnails.
