The Specials, Learning Disability Web Series Nominated For Webby Award

I just received this notice from Katy Lock, the dynamo behind the Specials TV show.(I did an interview with Katy Lock in January 2010.

I just wanted to let you know some wonderful news:
Learning disability web series 'The Specials' has been nominated for 2 Webby Awards, aka 'the Oscars of the Web'!

We're up in 2 categories: Reality and Documentary Series and if we win we're headed to a star-studded premiere in New York!!

As a Webby Award nominee, we are also eligible for the Webby People's Voice Award which is voted for by the global online community. Voting runs until 29th April and so I was wondering if you might be willing to help us get the vote out?

Here are the links for both voting categories:

Documentary
Reality

It would be wonderful if The Specials could go global! Particularly as it has such a positive message about people with learning disabilities.
