Love animated Gifs? Then you’ll love the .GIFYS, a new awards show that aims to determine the all-time best Gifs ever. Yes, ever.

The brainchild of ad agency CP+B LA, the .GIFYS brings together Gifs from all over the internet and places them into various categories – including WTF?, Can’t Look Away, and, of course, Cats – which the public can vote on.

The shortlists were chosen by a panel of ‘internet experts’, including contributors to Buzzfeed, Gawker, Tumblr, Mashable and more. All the nominees can be viewed at thegifys.com. Below are some stills of some of the categories, but obviously you’ll need to visit the site to see the gifs in all their animated glory.

As you might imagine, many of Gifs featured are very funny indeed. But it’s not all about giggles, people. According to the founders, the .GIFYs aim to “immortalise the best Gifs, a medium that otherwise is generally viewed only once before it’s lost in the abyss that is the internet…. Gifs that receive a .GIFY will become permanent fixtures in an internet hall of fame, to be celebrated forever.” So head over to thegifys.com and get voting, and become part of this important mission.
