BASIC Wins 3 Webby Awards for the Fourth Consecutive Year


We’re honored to take home three of “The Internet’s Highest Honor” including People’s Voice ‘Best eCommerce Website’ for Beatsbydre.com at this year’s 21st Webby Awards Show.

Each year, thousands of websites are submitted but only a few are selected as international distinctions of Internet excellence by IADAS, a 2,000+ member judging body represented by the Webby Awards. Over the past four years, we’ve been recognized 17 times by The Webby Awards across multiple categories for our work, including back-to-back Site of the Year awards for Best Shopping/eCommerce website in 2016 and 2017.

For the 21st Webby Awards, we’re honored to take home 3 People’s Voice awards and 2 Webby Honoree’s across 5 different categories. Our latest eCommerce work with the amazing team at Apple / Beats By Dre was awarded two People’s Voice awards for ‘Best Shopping’ and ‘Mobile Best Practices’. While our internal BASIC Year-in-Review microsite won the Webby People’s Voice Award for ‘Best Corporate Communications Website’.
