Discover Halifax earns international recognition from online awards body

The team at Discover Halifax found out earlier this week that our new website, won a Webby!

Congratulations to our partner, Bellweather Agency, who won the Webby Award in Websites and Mobile Sites - Travel and Lifestyle for their work with us on the new site in 2023.

The Webbys are a prestigious international award focusing on excellence in the online realm, with the New York Times describing them as the Internet’s highest honour. This year, nearly 13,000 submissions were received from over 70 countries in all the award categories, which are then scored through a combination of factors, including user experience, design, and content.

“The Discover Halifax team and our partner agencies have won several regional and national awards in recent years, but never something of this magnitude,” says Ross Jefferson, President and CEO. “Congratulations to Bellweather Agency and our team for the hard work and dedication on this project. It’s been an effective tool in showcasing the best of our region to the world.”

Bellweather is one of the five winners in the Websites and Mobile Sites - Travel and Lifestyle category. And our website is in good company, with both Travel + Leisure Magazine and Virgin Galactic also getting nods.

There is an online component of the Webby Awards as well, allowing the public to vote on their favourite in each category. Until April 16, click here to vote for the Discover Halifax submission.
