BBC and Guardian triumph at Webby awards

The BBC and The Guardian have both taken two of the top prizes at the US-based Webby awards handed out by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences.

In each category two prizes were given out: one decided by the 550-members of the academy, and one, the People's Voice, which is voted for by users of the internet.

BBC News won the news award in both the Webby and the People's Voice category. It saw off competition from US National Public Radio, Reuters.com, Salon.com and Truthdig.

The Guardian was named Webby newspaper of the year, while the New York Times won the People's Voice prize. Other nominees were Hollywood Reporter, Wall Street Journal Online and Variety.

It is the third consecutive year that The Guardian has won this prize.
