The Webbys are the Academy Awards of the online world, and i-D has just been announced as the winner of the best fashion and beauty site on the web in 2015.

Established in 1996, when the web really started to take off, the Webbys are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, a judging body comprised of creative luminaries, web experts, business figures and previous Webby winners. Described as the "Internet's highest honor" by The New York Times, the Webbys recognize digital excellence in websites, online film, apps, social media and advertising.

Although the winners have already been announced, an awards ceremony will be held on May 18 in the US, when winners will be invited to make an acceptance speech of just five words or less. For now, we'll let i-D's motto do the talking: Originate, don't imitate.
