The Web Fest, are a set of awards given annually for excellence of internet achievements in the region of Former Yugoslavia. The Web Fest statuette is one of two types of Web Fest Awards. Organized and overseen by the Web Fest llc,[1] the awards are given each year at a formal ceremony.

The awards were first given in 2007 at a ceremony created for the awards, at the Yugoslav Drama Theatre in Belgrade. Over the years that the award has been given, the categories presented have changed; currently Web Fest Awards are given in more than a dozen categories, and include awards for general contribution to the society. It is modeled after the Academy Award.

The 5th Web Fest Awards were held at the Atelje 212 on November 15, 2012.

History[edit]

The first Web Fest was held on November 29, 2007 at Yugoslav Drama Theater when a group of internet enthusiasts and technology lovers from private company Agena llc decided to organize an Oscar style type of awards ceremony in order to and increase the awareness of the quality of work done on the Internet in the region of Former Yugoslavia as well as highlight the importance of daily usage of the Internet amongst the general public.[2]

The only year Web Fest was not held was in 2008, allegedly due to a lack of sponsorship funding after the start of Global Recession. Since 2009 the Web Fest has been organized regularly while in 2011 and 2012 part of the festival was also a Web Fest Conference.
