The biggest Alternate Reality Game of the past year, “I Love Bees,” continues to gain major recognition with its just-announced nomination for a Webby Award! Time magazine and the New York Times call the Webbys â€œthe Academy Awards of the Internet.â€
“I Love Bees” is eligible to win two different awards in the â€œGames-relatedâ€ category â€” the official games-related award, and the â€œPeopleâ€™s Voiceâ€ awardâ€¦ which YOU can vote for!
Obviously, we here at ARGN would love to see ILB win this, but to be honest, we’d actually like to see it win the Peopleâ€™s Voice award even more than the official award. We think it’d be really great to show the world that the ARG communityâ€™s voice is loud and strong and bigger and badder than anyone elseâ€™sâ€¦ of course, we already know that because we heard you all singing over those payphones!! So letâ€™s show the rest of the web what we can do.
Voting in the 2005 Peopleâ€™s Voice Awards runs TODAY through April 29. VOTE NOW! Hereâ€™s how:
- Go to http://pv.webbyawards.com/ and click on the â€œRegister nowâ€ button.
- To ensure integrity of the vote, all voters must register. The process takes about 30 seconds (fill out the form). Then youâ€™ll receive a voting link and password via email.
Note: Voters can choose to vote in just one, or some of, or all of the categories. Itâ€™s fine, for instance, to just vote in the â€œGames-relatedâ€ category, which is the “I Love Bees” category.
Extra fun: There is an â€œinstant pollâ€ in voting that gives you the current standings for each site after you vote. We really need to get OUR votes in ASAP so that ILB looks like a contender, and so that other voters are more likely to spread the word. (Right now, ilovebees is in 3rd place out of 5â€¦ how long will it take ILB players to push it to #1? Hmmmâ€¦ letâ€™s find out!)
So what are you waiting for? Go vote!
