The Webby Special Achievement winners include Webby Artist of the Year DJ D-Nice, who has been keeping audiences entertained at home with his #ClubQuarantine sets on Instagram Live, and Verzuz co-creators Swizz Beats and Timbaland, who have been celebrating legendary artists, producers, and songwriters with their online Verzuz battles during the pandemic.
Other highlights include Rihanna‘s Fenty Beauty, which won the People’s Voice Award for Fashion & Beauty. The Houseparty App will receive the Webby Breakout of the Year Award, for keeping people connected even when they are physically apart.
