"Whether you love or hate him, #AvoidTrump was developed as a fun way to offer people an opportunity to be him or flee him across the country. This is also a great creative example of how any developer can quickly and easily use our APIs."Hailed as the "Internet's highest honor" by The New York Times, The Webby Awards, presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet.
