Flightglobal's Aviation Web Awards, aka THE WEBBIES, are back once again to celebrate and acknowledge the best and brightest aviation websites and online activities during the past year.

Now in its fourth year and with new and modified categories, Flightglobal welcomes entries and nominations from the entire online aviation community, from established industry leaders to striving newcomers, to enter on their own behalf or nominate an airport, airline, aircraft manufacturer or other aerospace company.

Flightglobal, the world's leading aviation news website, has always been at the forefront of the aviation industry's online activity - via breaking news, comprehensive web-wide search, community space, premium content and social networking. In addition, it can boast Flight International magazine's fully searchable and free-to-access historic pages, which date back to 1909.

Flightglobal is proud to recognise the very best and brightest aviation and aerospace websites and online activities with these annual web awards.

A panel of independent judges within the industry and key figures in online development at Reed Business Information are looking for established industry leaders and enthusiastic newcomers - and everyone in between - to enter The WEBBIES, as well as encouraging them to nominate their own favourites in the five categories.
