Google Earth sweeps Webby Awards

webbylogo.jpgThe Webby Award winners have been announced, and Google Earth sweeps it, winning both categories for which it was nominated, twice each. Google Earth wins the “Broadband” Webby, and also the People’s Voice award for that category. And Google Earth snags the “Best Visual Design — Function” Webby, as well as the People’s Voice award there too.

Google Maps wins the “Services” Webby and People’s Voice Award, and also the People’s Voice award for “Best Practices“. (Flickr wins the Webby there). Congratulations to everyone involved — seven awards by one development team must be some kind of Webby record.

(And a special shout out to fellow expat Belgian Régine Debatty, the talented blogger behind We-make-money-not-art, which won the Webby for “Blog — Culture/Personal“.)
