Indie Series Award-winning Hustling is nominated for this year's Webby Awards.
Hustling won two more Indie Series Awards last week, and is now tied with Anyone But Me and Anacostia as the web series with the most wins ever. Yesterday, the critically acclaimed drama was nominated for a Webby.

In addition to being nominated for an Online Film and Video Drama, Long Form or Series Webby Award, Hustling is also in the running for a People's Voice Webby Award in the same category.

Viewers and anyone who has been affected by and become a fan of the show - and with over 3 million views, there are a lot of you - can now come together and vote for Hustling. Click here to vote.

Hailed as the 'Internet's highest honor' by The New York Times, The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet, including Websites, Advertising & Media, Online Film & Video, Mobile Sites & Apps, and Social.

"Being nominated for a Webby Award is the perfect way to end the online chapter of the story of Hustling's journey from a man and his camera in season one, to the fully realized and beautifully shot series it has become in season 3," said creator and star Sebastian La Cause. "Hustling has come a long way and this nomination is confirmation that I am on the right path as a creator and that Hustling's reach and grasp of the audience has superseded anything I could have possibly imagined back in 2010 when I started on this road."

Established in 1996, The Webby Awards received nearly 13,000 entries from all 50 states and over 60 countries worldwide this year. From the thousands of global entries submitted to The Webby Awards, only 8% were selected as Nominees. Winners will be celebrated at a star-studded ceremony at Cipriani Wall Street on Monday, May 18, hosted by critically acclaimed actor and comedian Hannibal Buress. The Webby Awards is presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS).
