Vote for POETRY from the Poetry Foundation for a Webby Award, Pretty Please

POETRY from the Poetry Foundation nominated for a Webby!

Our app—POETRY from the Poetry Foundation—has been nominated for a Webby Award. This is a great, great honor. Mashable.com calls the Webbys “the Oscars for the Web.”

The POETRY app is eligible to win both the Webby Award—which is chosen by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences—and The Webby People’s Voice Award.

Vote for POETRY for a Webby Award

Vote on the Webby Awards site until April 26th.

We’re facing some stiff competition from Sesame Street and MoMA, so we encourage poetry lovers to head over to the Webby site and give POETRY a chance.

Not familiar with this FREE app? You can download the iOS version in the App Store or the Android version on Google Play.

If we win, we get to give a five-word acceptance speech! What should that be? Tweet your five words to us @poetryfound.
