One of the most prestigious awards for excellence on the internet – Webby Awards – is back for the year 2011 with the list of nominees yesterday. Interestingly, micro social networking website Twitter has received the nomination for the year 2011 awards under the “Community” category.

The Webby Awards is an annual event get organised by The International Academy Of Digital Arts and Sciences which recognises various web properties for achieving phenomenal success and distinction over the web in a year.

Every year over 100 awards are given in four distinct categories – websites, interactive advertising, online film and video, and mobile – and these are then further broken down into sub-categories, with 70 prizes available in the websites field alone.

However, Twitter’s competition is pretty assorted and includes Tumblr, Openideo, and Cuteness.com

Each category has two awards – the Webby – which comes through the selection procedure by Academy and second – People’s Voice award- where the public has all its say through the voting system. The voting process has been triggered and if you feel that twitter is your take you can cast your vote in favour here to help Twitter win.

It’s a second chance for Twitter to get nominated for Webby Award. Last year Twitter crossed over competitors only to collect the prizes in the Best Practices and Social networking categories.  Surprisingly, this year Twitter doesn’t get a place for such categories, though one of the Twitter’s client applications “HootSuite” has managed to reserve a place as a nominee under Social Media category this year.
