Webby Award Honoree LogoWe’re so excited to announce that Craftsy was named an Official Honoree in the 18th annual Webby Awards! We received recognition in the Mobile & Apps category for Best Use of Mobile Video and Best Educational & Reference App, and in Online Film & Video for the category Best How-to & DIY resource.

What are The Webby Awards?

The International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences runs the Webby Awards. Hailed as the “Internet’s highest honor” by The New York Times, these awards are the leading international awards honoring excellence on the Internet: It’s like the Oscars but for online companies.

The Webbys received 12,000 entries from over 60 countries, and only the top 15% were chosen as Official Honorees. “Honorees like Craftsy are setting the standard for innovation and creativity on the Internet,” said David-Michael Davies, executive director of The Webby Awards.

Here’s what Apple users have to say about our App:

“The best application ever…each version proves great progress. I have learned a lot since I’ve signed up for Craftsy. A lot of these lessons are not easy to learn in my country, so Craftsy gave me the great chance of learning. Instructors are sweet and give detailed information. The good thing about it is that I don’t have to stick to a specific time to learn and all the information is there with me all the time. If you forget something you can always go back to the lesson.”

Our videos are meant to inspire you and teach you with expert instruction in a way that’s not only affordable, but can also be done within the comfort of your own home. Go ahead, sign up for a class! Then grab a warm drink in your favorite mug, a cookie and your fuzzy slippers, and get ready to learn something new!

Here’s what Craftsy members have to say about our learning platform:

“I think my number of class purchases speaks for itself. Craftsy on my iPad is second to none. I can watch my videos right at my machine and I’m enjoying hands-on learning, right along side of some of the best artists in the world!! How awesome is that?? Craftsy, I love you!”
