Waze Wins a Webby!

Today the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences announced the winners of the 2013 Webbys, the "highest honor on the Web." Not only was Waze a nominee for Best Use of GPS Technology, but we won as Best Connected ProductWe'd like to congratulate our co-nominees too, including Nike+ FuelBand and tshirtOS.



The category of "Connected Product" is a special one for Waze. Simply put, a connected product is any tangible good that integrates the Web to work the best it can. The list of eligible candidates is huge! Our Webby win showcases what Wazers already know; Waze is more than just a GPS service. We're built on the social graph, using the power of the driving community (and the Web) to help other local drivers and, at a larger scale, build maps around the world.

Tune in here and watch the Waze team accept our trophy at the Webby Awards ceremony on May 22, hosted by Patton Oswalt. Acceptance speeches are limited to exactly five words - what should we say?

  16. I thought your live map would help alleviate a situation I was in. I found it is designed in an unbelievably stupid way. I find it even harder to believe you deserve an award for anything. This is a 100% serious comment.
