Honored as one of Newsweek's "Women Shaping the 21st Century," Tiffany Shlain is Founder and Ambassador of The Webby Awards, an award-winning filmmaker, and a mother. Since its launch in 1996, The Webby Awards has grown into the most coveted international honors for achievement online, attracting entries from more than 40 countries and all 50 states. As creative director of The Webby Awards for its first nine years, Tiffany helped make The Webby Awards a major international event thanks to its famous five-word acceptance speeches, original films and thrilling live awards ceremonies that have attracted former Vice President Al Gore, internet pioneer Vinton Cerf, satirist Sandra Bernhardt, artist Bill Viola, and actor Alan Cumming. Tiffany is an acclaimed screenwriter and film director. Her 8th film, "The Tribe", selected for The Sundance Film Festival 2006, enlists pop icon Barbie to tackle challenging issues of Jewish identity.
