I'm studying abroad, can I still submit?
Yes! We are taking The Webbies international this year, so every campus should have information about submissions. You can also download an entry form and mail your work in or submit electronically. If you have further questions or need a mailing address, contact us at webbies@webster.edu.

I have a group project, but half the group graduated last year. Can I still submit our project?
Yes! Not everyone has to be a current student to win. You can still put everyone's name on the submission form even if only one or two people will be accepting the award.

What if my work fits under more than one category?
You can submit the same piece under multiple large categories (i.e.- Film and Scriptwriting), but you can only have one sub-category per entry.
