The EPPY Awards are a premier accolade for media-affiliated websites, presented by Editor & Publisher magazine. Designed in 1996 to honor newspaper companies that did an "outstanding job in creating online services", the awards were originally given in partnership between Mediaweek and Editor & Publisher named the "Best Online Newspaper Services Competition," and presented at the end of the Interactive Newspaper Conference.
In 1998, the awards were renamed "The EPPY Awards." and in 2003 the awards were expanded to recognise websites associated to other media outlets, as well as newspapers. Since 2003, Mediaweek have co-sponsored the Interactive Newspaper Conference and Trade Show, and the both awards and conference were moved from a February to May. The 14th EPPY Awards were at the Astor Crowne Plaza Hotel in New Orleans on May 7, 2009.
As of 2014, the EPPY Awards are awarded across 31 diverse media-related categories, with two tiers based on readership size.
