We’re happy to announce that FactCheck.org is both the 2017 Webby Award and People’s Voice winner for best political blog or website.
This is the fourth consecutive year that we’ve won both awards, which honor excellence on the internet. Since 2007, we’ve won a total of 18 Webbys, including eight awarded by the judging panel and 10 based on a vote by the general public.
We’re grateful to the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences and our loyal readers for the recognition.
The 21st annual Webby competition received 13,000 entries from all 50 U.S. states and over 70 countries, according to the IADAS.
The other finalists in the Political Blog/Websites category this year were the Center for Public Integrity, PBS, the Intercept, and Code and Theory.
