Our Internet Oscar Nomination
Worldwide Breast Cancer and Dogtown Media have been nominated for Best Apps, Mobile, and Voice: Health & Fitness in the 23rd Annual Webby Awards. Hailed as the “Internet’s highest honor” by The New York Times, The Webby Awards, presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), is the leading international awards organization honoring excellence on the Internet. Established in 1996, this year’s Webby Awards received nearly 13,000 entries from all 50 states and 70 countries worldwide this year.
Worldwide Breast Cancer CEO & Founder, Dr. Corrine Ellsworth-Beaumont, is the designer and creator behind the app. “Our mission is to change the picture of breast cancer. Until a cure is found, we need to help patients find it as early as possible. Our Know Your Lemons® app is a big leap forward in removing communication barriers that have prevented women (and men) from having the confidence to understand breast health, report symptoms and get screened.”
The Know Your Lemons® breast health education app, built by both Worldwide Breast Cancer (WBC) and Dogtown Media, follows on from WBC’s success in educating over half a billion people in 20 languages in 90 countries since 2017, by providing an easy-to-use digital product for people to learn how to self-exam, learn about risk factors of breast cancer, book a mammogram, and feel confident in knowing what to do if something suspicious is found.
IADAS, which nominates and selects The Webby Award winners, is comprised of Internet industry experts including Internet inventor Vint Cerf, Instagram’s Head of Fashion Partnerships Eva Chen, Director of Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society Susan P. Crawford, actor and activist Jesse Williams, GE CMO Linda Boff, Pod Save the People host and activist DeRay McKesson, Google’s Head of Conversation Design Cathy Pearl, Fortnite Designer Eric Williamson, HBO Digital Chief Diane Tryneski, Los Angeles Laker Isaiah Thomas, and DDB Worldwide CEO Wendy Clark.
