International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences

about the IADAS

The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences was founded in 1998 to help drive the creative, technical, and professional progress of the Internet and evolving forms of interactive media.

An international organization, The Academy selects the Nominees and Winners for The Webby Awards and The Lovie Awards, the leading honors for websites and individual achievement in technology and creativity. Presented by The Academy, The Webbys and The Lovies recognizes excellence in interactive creativity, establishing best practices on a yearly basis, and thus pushing the standards of web development continually higher.

Through our newsletter, lectures and year-round collaboration in online and offline events we encourage people inside and outside the industry to share ideas and information.
