Grazia USA, the American edition of Grazia, launched as a result of the licensing agreement entered into by the Mondadori Group with Pantheon Media Group LLC, is in the running to win the title of “Best Website & Mobiles Site” in the Fashion and Beauty category of the 2022 Webby Awards.
The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS) announced the nomination, the committee promoting the prestigious award, made up of the most pre-eminent experts in the digital and technology industry in the USA. At the 26th edition of the Webby Awards – whose winners, announced on Tuesday, 26 April, will receive the award on Monday, 16 May at the historic Cipriani Wall Street in New York – in addition, Grazia USA can boast a double honourable mention in the Websites & Mobile Sites categories – Best Visual Design – Aesthetic and Social – Fashion and Beauty.
A result that further consolidates the success of the first 100% Italian fashion brand in one of the largest and most important countries in the world for fashion and luxury goods.
“We are thrilled that Grazia USA has received a nomination at the Webby Awards: a prestigious award, which, just over a year after its launch, confirms the strength and vitality of our brand in an important market such as the US, contributing not only to consolidating the positioning of Grazia in the fashion and luxury markets, but also to strengthening the founding values of its DNA”, said Daniela Sola, Managing Director International Business of Mondadori Media.
“We are honoured that the Academy has selected Grazia USA in the very first year of operation, not only as a media brand, but also as a contemporary reality alongside consolidated and well-established brands with great traditions”, underlined Melissa Cronin, President and Chief Operating Officer of Pantheon Media Group.
“This year’s nominees are really engaged in the evolution of digital culture and society in the most diverse categories: Websites & Mobile Sites, Video, Advertising, Media & PR, Apps & Software, Virtual & Remote, Podcasts, Social and Video Games”, says the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. “Ultimately, they represent an incredibly stimulating mix of well-established brands on the web and independent projects, but also celebrities and viral phenomena. Of the more than 14,000 entries received from the 50 American states and more than 70 foreign countries, the best ones selected – totalling 12% – will have the chance to win a Webby Award”.
Voting for the 2022 Webby People’s Voice Awards – a parallel edition which allows the public to express their preferences in the same categories reviewed by the experts – will remain open until 11.59 am on Thursday, 21 April. To support Grazia USA in the Fashion & Beauty category, click here .
