A Goodbye To A Great Job.
(The following is a serious post, not a joke and/or video of animals on a slide)
Hello! My name is Yoni Lotan. After 3 years of working for the Webby Awards, I am moving on to a new JOB. To have my OWN show on Official Comedy. But more about that later.
People tend to do this a lot; you know, write about their feelings after a major change, so I’ll just keep this short and to the point.
I want to share the main reason why I’ve stayed with this job for so long, and that is my co-workers.
The people behind the Webby Awards are hard-working, caring, and REAL. Most aren’t lucky to be put into such a great scenario with such a team, and I am thankful. The late-nights, the sound effects, the sonos playlist games, the snack challenges, the puppy. All meant the world to me over these past 3 years.
The photo above is from this years webby after-party. I have over 50 of these gems from the past 3 shows. Photos in which an entire staff of 20 some people cramming their drunken faces in front of a tiny camera, while a long line of guests wait to for their turn. But we didn’t care because we DESERVED THESE DRUNKEN PHOTOS. we worked our asses off for these photos.
Anyways, just know that the people behind The Webby Awards really are incredible and as the years go by and the internet becomes more of a reflection of our culture, know that the Webbys and its supreme staff are there to curate it all.
And now my finally company plugs:
