The Webby Awards were established 16 years ago and are meant to reward individuals who have shown outstanding achievement in internet-related projects, a press release from Smekkleysa states.

The jury concluded that Björk deserved the honor for releasing the world’s first app album, Biophilia, and for using modern technology to distribute her music, building a bridge between internet and music in a unique and progressive manner.

Björk’s Biophilia app will now be used to educate children in New York.
