This landed in my inbox a few days ago. If in the course of the past year you’ve built an insurance website, created a mobile app or made an online film or video, you may want to submit your work for consideration for a Webby Award.

The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences just opened its call for entries for the 17thAnnual Webby Awards.

Hailed as the “Internet’s highest honor” by The New York Times, The Webby Awards celebrate the year’s best websites, interactive advertising and media, online film and video, mobile and apps, and social experiences.

If your company is interested in submitting for a Webby Award, the category to choose is: Financial Services + Insurance (Interactive Advertising). This is for the sites promoting financial services, information, or insurance on behalf of a brand.

The early entry deadline to submit works for consideration is October 26, 2012, and the nominees will be announced April 2013.

Judges include Tumblr founder and CEO David Karp, Instagram Co-Founder Kevin Systrom, and media mogul Arianna Huffington among others.

Entrants compete not only to win a Webby, but to deliver their 5-Word Speech. Since 2007, Webby Awards 5-Word Speech videos have garnered over seven million views on YouTube.com/webby
