The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences has announced this year’s Webby Award winners, with Always’ #LikeAGirl campaign and TED leading the pack.

Judges including Arianna Huffington and Conan O’Brien settled on the winners after awarding no less than 11 separate awards to each.

Hot on their heels were VICE Media with ten trophies, IDEO with five and finally the New York Times, Hyperlapse, and Mashable – each of which managed to garner four nods.

Unusually the actual awards ceremony itself won’t take place until 19 May, when people will be invited to live stream proceedings despite all the results having been placed in the public domain in advance.
