Entries for the next Webby Awards are being called for, and you only have until the end of the month to enter.

With 30 categories, the Webbys have become the de facto international award for websites. Categories awarded last July included news, humour, activism, education and film, along with best practice (in 2001 going to search engine Google) and best personal site.

Entries are accepted from all around the world, but have tended in the past to be dominated by the US. With the Webbys now in its sixth year, the balance is shifting more towards non-US entries with participants coming from around 30 countries over the past couple of years.

Each category garners two awards -- one a publically voted award and the other based on votes from the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, which includes media celebrities as well as high-profile IT names. Two New Zealanders are included in the invitation-only academy -- former IDGNet editor Russell Brown and industry commentator Paul Reynolds.

Entries can be made here by January 31.
