We won a Webby!

The results are in! The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences announced the winners of the 15th annual Webby Awards today, and we're proud to report that "Walk around the world" — a video that encapsulated one of last year's most popular iReport Weekend Assignments — was awarded top honors in the category of Online Film & Video: Video Remixes/Mashups!



A Webby Award is one of the most respected awards there are in online media and so we're tremendously proud to receive this recognition in the name of our community. Your effort and brilliance have definitely not gone unnoticed.


Congratulations are in order to the "Walk Around the World" team: Tyson Wheatley, Curt Merrill, John Sutter and Karyn Lu. Together, they oversaw and produced this amazing project. We also want to thank the wonderful and incredibly talented CNN.com video production team for stitching together one hell of a strut.


Finally, we at CNN iReport want to thank the hundreds of people who contributed to the assignment and also the many passionate, creative souls who make up our community. You guys rock, and this award belongs to you.

I'm excited to be part of this fun project! This was also the first time I shot an underwater scene.


Congrats to the hundreds of people who contributed to the assignment. I hope CNN makes a badge to honor the award. :)

Awesome . I believe ireports are very important to show just how interconnected the world is now. Individual expression is a basic human need and ireports provides an outlet for that. Congratulations
