We’ve got some exciting news to share with readers of this blog - Expat Explorer has been nominated for a Webby award!
Described by The New York Times as “the Oscars of the Internet”, the Webby Awards are the highlight of the online awards calendar and is the “leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet”.
Being a Nominee means that HSBC is in the top 3% in over 10,000 entries worldwide and now in the final, running up against Mint, CNN Money, Wikinvest and Wonga in this category.
We’ve come a long way since the Expat Explorer survey was born in 2008. From basic PDF reports, the research results were developed digitally and last year became a highly interactive online resource, making it easier than ever for expats to find out about how their host country fares in terms of economics, experience and raising children. Today, it remains the largest global survey of expats.
The overall winners of the Webbys will be announced on the 1st May but for those who wish to support Expat Explorer for the People’s Voice Award, you can cast your votes here: http://pv.webbyawards.com/ballot/42
The closing date for votes is Thursday 26th April 2012.
