The 2001 Webby Awards were held in San Francisco at the War Memorial Opera House on July 18, 2001, hosted by Alan Cumming.[1] The Lifetime Achievement Award, which debuted this year, went to Ray Tomlinson and Douglas Englebart.[2] It was the first awards held after the dot-com crash; as a result, they were smaller and quieter than in years past.[3][4]

Notes[edit]

Winners and nominees are generally named according to the organization or website winning the award, although the recipient is, technically, the web design firm or internal department that created the winning site and in the case of corporate websites, the designer's client. Web links are provided for informational purposes, both in the most recently available archive.org version before the awards ceremony and, where available, the current website. Many older websites no longer exist, are redirected, or have been substantially redesigned.
